MotoGP, TGpone Austin, Pernat: "Pramac could actually move to Yamaha"

VIDEO - Carletto comments Friday in Austin: "Yamaha desperately needs a second team. VR46 will 90% remain with Ducati, and there aren't many alternatives. Quartararo? They presented him with a plan and some money."

MotoGP, TGpone Austin, Pernat: "Pramac could actually move to Yamaha"

Our Carletto Pernat commented Friday in Austin, where Jorge Martìn dominated. But, leaving aside what happened on the track, it's time for big changes in the paddock, with a waltz between bikes and riders that has already begun. From Quartararo's signing with Yamaha, to the Iwata constructor’s desperate need for a second team, with a tangible possibility that this will become Team Pramac, according to what the manager thinks.

The  reference satellite team for Ducati would, at this point, be taken over by VR46 that, instead, wants to forge an increasingly close relationship with the Borgo Panigale constructor. He also spoke about Franco Morbidelli’s good performance, as he’s starting to interpret his Ducati well, and also about Pedro Acosta’s confirmations, since he’s increasingly becoming a leader in KTM. In the background, Honda's black crisis continues, without a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Something will have to change, and there’s no guarantee that Alberto Puig will maintain his role in the future.

Enjoy the news from Austin. A track that has finally become successful when it comes to spectators and that could soon be joined by a second American track, doubling the number of races in the USA, with Liberty Media’s blessing. They’ll certainly want the MotoGP to grow in the States, and they’re already considering which tracks to bring it to, besides the COTA, starting in 2025.
