  • Jorge Lorenzo may head to Pramac Ducati in 2020.

  • Jack Miller’s contract deal has been delayed.

  • Miller says that it may be due to Lorenzo’s negotiation with the team.

In a shock bit of gossip, Jorge Lorenzo may eye a seat at Pramac Ducati in 2020. Even more intriguingly, current rider Jack Miller says his contract deal is delayed because of Lorenzo.

It’s the mid-season break for the MotoGP paddock and this is when deals are signed and time for the people involved to talk.

Rumours of Lorenzo may quit Honda for a Ducati ride next year started surfacing a few days prior but most (including us) dismissed it as just that – rumours. Why would he leave a factory team for a satellite team?

Miller had earlier joked that his 2020 contract was being “sent to him,” only to discover that Lorenzo had entered negotiations with his team. The Australian wasn’t happy and didn’t mince his words, “I think there is some truth to the rumours about Lorenzo. For sure he’s looking at something because at the moment he can’t ride the Honda. It’s easy to tuck your tail between your legs and run back,” said Miller to

“I thought we were waiting on paperwork but clearly that’s not the case. There might be something else behind it, I don’t know yet. We’ll see. Once Jorge comes back from the Maldives or wherever he is, we’ll find out what I’m doing.”

Lorenzo is currently under rehabilitation after crushing his vertebrae in a crash. He had said that the Honda fits him better when he moved to the Repsol Honda factory team but is now reeling from poor results and injury.

Colourful and outspoken MotoGP rider Jack Miller tested a Ducati Panigale V4 R recently.

The Pramac Ducati rider swapped his Desmosedici GP19 for the superbike at an open track day in Barcelona, Spain. The track was open for Moto2 and Moto3 riders, but Miller grabbed the opportunity to ride Ducati’s superbike.

In the hands of ex-MotoGP rider Alvaro Bautista, the Ducati Panigale V4 R has dominated the World Superbike Championship this year. The pairing saw a total of 11 victories in 14 races, thus far. Reigning world champion Jonathan Rea and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R was able to pip Bautista only once at Imola.

No official lap times were recorded. Miller nor his team issued any official comments, either.

The Australian rider is currently having a good run in MotoGP. He has grabbed a podium and two top four finishes in five races, thus far. He has 42 points in the championship standings, just 15 less than Mission Winnow Ducati factory rider Danilo Petrucci.

  • The factory Ducati Team launched the Ducati Desmosedici GP19.

  • Factory riders Andrea Dovizioso, Danilo Petrucci and Pramac rider Jack Miller will ride the GP19 in MotoGP 2019.

  • It now sports a full-red livery.

The factory Ducati Team launched the Ducati Desmosedici GP19 for the MotoGP 2019 season.

The launch was aired “live” from the Philip Morris Cube in Neuchâtel, Switzerland early this morning. Attendees at the launch were team riders Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci. Factory and team luminaries including Claudio Domenicali, Paolo Ciabatti, Davide Tardozzi, Luigi Dall’Igna, among others.

The Desmosedici GP19 now sports a fully-red livery without white and grey stripes. The Mission Winnow sponsorship is actually part of Philip Morris International (PMI).

Apart from the livery, the GP19 looks similar to its Desmosedici GP18 predecessor. However, the giant air intake at the front of the fairing has more rounded edges, especially at the bottom. Our guess it to maintain a steady flow of intake air as rounder shapes promote better surface tension. Hence the airflow “sticks” together rather than turn “choppy.”

Besides that, there are “whisker” aerobodies on both sides of the upper fairing.

To those who asked if the “lunchbox” is still there, yes, it is still there underneath the tailsection.

Although the GP19 many look outwardly similar to the older bike, we suspect much underneath have evolved. Remember, MotoGP will use a unified (standard) IMU this year.

There are claims on the internet that the GP19 may produce as much as 300 bhp. It could very well be true as the GP17 and GP18 were already eputed to produce around 280 bhp.

Dovizioso finished as the bridesmaid for the last two seasons. He’s confident that the new bike will help him seal Ducati’s second MotoGP championship since Casey Stoner did so in 2007.
