Official: Luca Marini stays at VR46 for 2024 – but Ducati still have free seats

With his confirmation, Marini’s place in the 2024 MotoGP rider line-up is secured, which raises questions about the remaining seats. It was expected for Marini to be retained by the VR46 team, owned by his brother Valentino Rossi, but it wasn’t finalized until the San Marino MotoGP. This takes Marini out of the conversation for the vacant Pramac Racing seat, as Johann Zarco will be joining LCR Honda. Meanwhile, Franco Morbidelli seems to be the top candidate for the Pramac seat after losing his seat at Yamaha. Additionally, Fabio di Giannantonio is expected to lose his Gresini ride, potentially freeing up a second Ducati for 2024. Marini will remain in Rossi’s team alongside Marco Bezzecchi, who rejected Pramac to stay with VR46. This will be Marini’s third year in the premier class, with a career-best result of finishing second at the Grand Prix of the Americas in Texas. VR46 has had a successful season, largely due to Bezzecchi’s wins, and his emergence as a title contender should inspire Marini to achieve similar feats next year.
