MotoGP: Dovizioso Remain Open As Marquez Replacement In Season Opener

Andrea Dovizioso is adamant he will not return to MotoGP in 2021 but remains open as Marc Marquez replacement at Honda.

Dovizioso opted for a sabbatical in 2021 after failing to secure a seat as a test-rider.

However, Dovizioso expressed the desire to return as a replacement for Marquez who is expected to be sidelined after his third successful operation.

“I’m open, but at the moment I’m not looking for a place to return to at all costs.

“I am only interested in projects of a certain type, so if there is a possibility of returning to MotoGP in 2021 or 2022 I will be the first to be happy to talk about it,” he explained.

Meanwhile, Dorna Sports CEO, Carmelo Ezpeleta, has ruled out the possibility of fielding three factory team riders since it was outlawed back in 2012.

A passionate football fan and anything two-wheels. He likes to commute on his 150cc scooter on a daily basis and occasionally takes a long trip with his 750cc machine just to "tapau" his favourite "roti canai". With a journalism background, he likes to write as much as he rides.
