Searching for Marquez’s Successor: Five Riders Gresini Might Eye for 2025



Who might step in for Marc Marquez at Gresini?

Five potential candidates Gresini might consider to fill Marc Marquez's spot

Marc Marquez's move to the official Ducati team in 2025 has opened up a slot for a fresh rider at Gresini.

Alex Marquez, his sibling, is similarly at the end of his contract term this year, yet there appears to be minimal indication that he will leave the team as well.

With the availability of a one-year-old Desmosedici, numerous riders will be keen to take over the motorcycle once Marc Marquez exits…

Joan Mir, who was Marquez's last partner at Repsol Honda before he left last year to join Gresini, has been eyeing the departure gate with desire.

Mir has faced a difficult period since he had to seek new opportunities following Suzuki's departure from MotoGP and his subsequent move to Honda.

The winner of the 2020 MotoGP has struggled to display even a hint of his peak performance over the last two years.

Mir's initial season with Honda was marred by accidents, leading him to contemplate retirement midway through.

This season, he's been confined to the rear positions on the track, yet he's aware that his current agreement is nearing its conclusion.

Mir has acknowledged that his standing is no longer influential enough to position himself prominently in the rider market.

However, with several vital figures – Marquez, Fabio Quartararo, Maverick Vinales, Enea Bastianini, Jorge Martin – now secured, the moment for him to decide could be approaching quickly.

Gresini, despite lacking the factory-spec Ducati, remain a compelling option.

Evidence of their ability to revive a rider's profession is evident not just with Marc Marquez, but also with Alex. Last year, Alex experienced a revival in his career, marking his inaugural season donned in Gresini's blue.

Mir is poised to emulate the Marquez siblings by exchanging a dreadful stint with Honda in pursuit of reigniting his passion for racing, joining a family-operated squad that boasts a top-tier motorcycle.

Franco Morbidelli

Pramac's future remains uncertain.

The possibility of them remaining at Ducati, where they enjoy the advantages of a factory-spec motorcycle, is uncertain. A tempting proposal from Yamaha is on the horizon.

Pramac is aware that Jorge Martin will be departing for Aprilia, while Franco Morbidelli's future for 2025 remains uncertain due to his contract ending this year.

Morbidelli has just started to perform well on his GP24 this year, following a preseason setback due to an injury.

Morbidelli faced a rough beginning, losing significant momentum, particularly with his departure from Yamaha last season amid ongoing rumors of his potential dismissal.

Should Pramac decide on an entirely fresh pair of riders or a fresh beginning with Yamaha, then Morbidelli may need to seek a new beginning as well.

Undoubtedly, he retains the competitive edge necessary to lead in MotoGP when he's at his peak, yet his recent performances have rarely showcased this.

The more relaxed atmosphere of the Gresini team, away from the intense focus on Marquez or the high expectations that come with a factory-spec Ducati, might provide the perfect setting for Morbidelli to demonstrate his remaining capabilities.

Alex Rins has devoted his MotoGP career to riding motorcycles made in Japan, yet he could be interested in competing with higher-performance equipment.

Rins' agreement with Yamaha is set to conclude at the end of this season, and he hasn't made any decisions regarding his plans for 2025.

A year ago in Texas, Rins showcased his exceptional skills by being the first Honda rider to clinch a grand prix victory since 2018, apart from Marc Marquez.

Reflecting on the current performances of the Hondas, their previous achievements seem even more impressive now.

In recent years, Gresini has achieved grand prix victories thanks to the efforts of Enea Bastianini and Fabio di Giannantonio, aiming to continue their competitive streak for podium finishes. Alex Rins presents a viable choice for them, having previously demonstrated the capability to compete at this level.

Having secured victory in five MotoGP grand prix races, Rins has faced significant challenges over two seasons with Honda and Yamaha, including a severe leg injury last year. Nonetheless, his professional record remains impressive upon examination.

Augusto Fernandez

In an eye-opening announcement from Tech3 KTM, they revealed that Enea Bastianini and Maverick Vinales will be their riders for the 2025 season, leaving no room for Fernandez.

KTM's official team lineup is now set, leaving Fernandez and Jack Miller in search of fresh opportunities within MotoGP.

Fernandez has seemingly fallen out of the spotlight in KTM's development, overshadowed by the remarkable performance of his teammate, Pedro Acosta. Yet, it wasn't too long ago that he was considered a highly promising talent.

A year ago, KTM chose to extend Fernandez's agreement and part ways with Pol Espargaro, paving the way for Acosta's inclusion, despite it potentially being simpler to let go of Fernandez.

In 2022, Fernandez, who won the Moto2 championship, moved up to the top tier of racing

Acosta's achievements have redefined expectations, yet Fernandez remains a compelling choice for squads seeking a skilled cyclist.

Gresini might benefit from giving a second chance to a rider who is in dire need of support and trust.

Fermin Aldeguer, the promising young rider in the Moto2 category, has yet to secure a seat for the upcoming season

Ducati has inked a MotoGP deal with him, though they haven't yet assigned him to a particular team.

Aldeguer is under the impression that he will be using equipment of factory specification, indicating a connection with Pramac.

However, uncertainty about Pramac's continuity with Ducati raises the possibility that Aldeguer might end up in a different team.

Placing him within the Gresini team might serve as the perfect initial move into the top tier.

Being mentored by Alex Marquez, a seasoned rider and compatriot from Spain, could create an ideal setting for his initial rounds.

Rumors circulating in the paddock suggest that Aldeguer's talent is notable, and a season with Gresini might just set him up for a significant advancement within the Ducati ranks.
