MotoGP: Dorna underlines that Suzuki cannot decide on its own to leave MotoGP


The official announcement by the Japanese manufacturer has not yet arrived, but everyone is now fully aware that Suzuki will abandon MotoGP at the end of the season. The fact is that in the last few hours Dorna has intervened on the affair, issuing an official communication about what has happened.

Here as follows is the statement:

“Following recent rumours of Suzuki departing MotoGP™ at the end of 2022, Dorna Sports has officially contacted the factory in order to remind them that the conditions of their contract to race in MotoGP do not allow for them to take this decision unilaterally.

However, should Suzuki depart following an agreement between both parties, Dorna will decide on the ideal number of riders and teams racing in the MotoGP™ class from 2023.

Dorna continues to receive high levels of interest from a number of both official factories and Independent Teams looking to join the MotoGP grid as the sport continues to set a global example of close competition, innovation and entertainment, reaching hundreds of millions of fans around the world.

Interest from these parties has been re-confirmed in the past 24 hours.”

All that remains now is to wait for the evolution of this situation.
