Dani Pedrosa is expected to remain in the Honda team for two more seasons after Maverick Vinales decides to transfer to Yamaha, ie until the end of the 2018 season, when he will turn 33 years old. The Spaniard decided on this move last Friday, and Honda will officially confirm the extension in the coming days. With this move, Honda is supposed to provide an additional reason for Marc Marquez to extend his contract.

It is not yet clear who Suzuki will choose to replace Vinales. They are running between two options, namely to immediately sign a contract with the Ducati racer, who will say goodbye to the Italian factory team this year, Andre Iannone or Andrea Dovizios, or with a slightly less experienced Moto2 racer. In the latter case, Alex Rins is said to be at the top of the wish list, followed by the current class champion, Johann Zarco.
