Lorenzo on edge of Ducati move?

Lorenzo on edge of Ducati move?

British weekly newspaper, MCN, have revealed details about Jorge Lorenzo’s rumoured move to Ducati. While they say there is no official deal signed, it’s a “verbally done deal and there will be an official announcement of the tie up between the three-time MotoGP champion and the Italian manufacturer when the championship returns to Europe’. MCN are not the first to speculate about a move by Lorenzo, Giacomo Agostini discussed details of the move in late March.

Paolo Ciabatti, Ducati’s Sporting Director, is quoted in the article as having said  “We’ve made no secret about it – we know both Marquez and Lorenzo have contracts are expiring at the end of the season. We’ve been talking to the riders.”

When asked about his future plans during the pre-race press conference, Lorenzo remained cagey on his plans, “I want to keep it private with my people and make a decision in the coming weeks.”
