Just as MotoGP’s very eventful 2021 rider market looked like it was set to calm down came growing talk that Honda has already decided to drop Alex Marquez and replace with KTM’s Pol Espargaro.

The ongoing saga of Valentino Rossi’s next move remains unresolved and with an uncertain timeline, and the latest disruption to the 2020 calendar hits any plans Jorge Lorenzo had to evaluate a full comeback. How long Cal Crutchlow plans to stick around is still in question too.
And while the Ducati situation seemed to be settling with the signing of Jack Miller for a 2021 factory seat, the Espargaro/Marquez news could change the picture for current lead Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso.
