Elena Rosell looks set to become the first woman since Katja Poensgen in 2003 to sign up for a full grand prix season.

The 25-year-old Spaniard - who overcame a tough Moto2 debut attempt for Aspar at Assen to finish as a wild-card at Aragon (33rd) and Valencia (25th) - is reported by Marca to be joining the QMMF team.

Mashel Al Naimi, Ricard Cardus, Nasser Hasan Al Malki and Alexander Cudlin made appearances for the QMMF Moriwaki squad in 2011.

Poensgen scored two grand prix points during the 2001 250cc season.
