The list of teams and riders has been released for the 2015 MotoGP™ season! Last year’s record-breaking season was a landmark for MotoGP’s Honda Repsol team, as well as their standout star, Marc Marquez.
Despite some of MotoGP’s biggest stars remaining with their same teams, there have been some change ups for other teams and riders before the upcoming season. The grid will consist of five manufacturers, now including Suzuki and Aprilia.
Promotions and Trades
Former Moto3 World Champion, Maverick Vinalales, will partner with Aleix Espargaro as the two riders at the forefront for Suzuki’s return in the 2015 season.
Yamaha’s former showrunner, Davide Brivio, will be the new manager for the team. Andrea Iannone will also join Ducati’s official factory team alongside Andrea Dovizioso.
In addition, the Moto2’s former title winner, Pol Espargaro, will work with Bradley Smith for Monster Yamaha. CWM-LCR Honda recently made a big move and signed Cal Crutchlow to ride for them in 2015.
After suffering a knee injury, Nicky Hayden will be back in full swing for Drive M7 Aspar. Fans can expect a hard fight from this team with the former Moto2 World Champion now healthy and ready to return.
Tried and True
Several of MotoGP’s biggest names, however, will not be moving from their 2014 teams in the upcoming season.
The wildly successful and record-breaking Marquez will remain alongside his fellow strong rider, Dani Pedrosa, for the Honda Repsol team. The team’s biggest rival, Yamaha, will be returning with their same podium-winning riders and former World Champions, Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi.
