Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo would prefer the 2015 British MotoGP to remain at Silverstone.

On Wednesday it was announced that the Circuit of Wales has sealed a long-term contract to host the British Grand Prix from next season, replacing Silverstone.

However with the new Welsh circuit yet to be built an alternative venue will be needed for the 2015 event, with Silverstone and Donington Park the two most feasible candidates.

Donington hosted the British round from 1987-2009, but the riders polled said they would prefer to return to Silverstone next year.

"Donington is ready?" asked Rossi. "For me. Difficult. I like Donington but also Silverstone... I'll say Silverstone."

"I got my first podium at Donington so it would nice to come back there, but it doesn't matter," said world champion Marc Marquez, eventually deciding: "Silverstone."

"Silverstone because at Donington I crashed leading the race!" said Jorge Lorenzo.
