Is Ducati getting new factory riders for next season?
Snapshot: According to the rumours in the MotoGP world, Aleix Espargaro and Andrea Iannone are going to ride for team Ducati in 2015
The MotoGP world has gone into slumber with the mid-season break, but not everyone is busy relaxing. According to the latest rumours from the paddock, Ducati is all set to have an entirely new team for the 2015 season and the two names that have recently surfaced are of NGM Forward's Aleix Espargaro and Pramac Racing's Andrea Iannone. Espargaro, who is enjoying a good season so far aboard a Yamaha powered motorcycle has always said that he is looking for a factory team to race for. And it seems that Ducati has listened to his prayers. The rumours also say that Lorenzo turned down Ducati's offer and signed a new contract with Yamaha at Sachsenring which eventually became a good news for one of these two riders. As for the present two racers of the Ducati team, Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow are on their way out as Crutchlow is reported to have ended his contract with Ducati and Dovizioso is figuring out his chances with an Open Class team.
Nothing has been said by any party so far which makes the speculations rise with time, but as they say, "there is no smoke without a fire".
