until Abu Dhabi Autonomous Racing League

After Ducati and KTM, it's now Aprilia that can claim it's put together a 2025 MotoGP superteam after securing Marco Bezzecchi alongside Jorge Martin in its all-new factory line-up.

But as Simon Patterson, Valentin Khorounzhiy and Matt Beer debate on The Race MotoGP Podcast, while signing the second- and third-placed riders from the 2023 world championship looks great on paper, there are definite question marks around whether this is all going to work.

We also examine all the repercussions elsewhere in the field, from what happens at Aprilia satellite team Trackhouse - whose riders get very different responses from Aprilia boss Massimo Rivola - to whether the exodus of strong satellite riders from Ducati marks a significant end of an era and also why on earth it seems Joan Mir might want to prolong his Honda stint.

And the World Superbike Championship has entered the MotoGP rider market in earnest, too. Are we going to see Toprak Razgatlioglu or even Andrea Iannone on the 2025 MotoGP grid? And if so, where and how would it go? We give our takes on all of that.
