Marc Marquez named on three-man shortlist for Gresini seat

The 2024 MotoGP rider line-up is expected to have two available rides on Ducati, the Pramac vacated by Johann Zarco and the Gresini ride from which Fabio di Giannantonio is set to be dropped. Paddock rumors suggest that Marc Marquez, the six-time premier class champion contracted with Honda, is a shock name on the shortlist for Gresini. Other names in contention for the ride are Joan Mir and Jake Dixon. Despite Jake Dixon having a Moto2 contract, there could be a clause allowing him to jump to a MotoGP team if desired. Ducati has previously expressed a preference for promoting younger riders from within, but they did recruit Marc Marquez’s brother, Alex Marquez, to Gresini last year. Mir has stated that he plans to stay at Repsol Honda, but there were reports that he had reached out to assess Gresini’s interest.
