MotoGP Malaysia: 2015 MotoGP entry list revealed

The 2015 MotoGP entry list is released with 25 riders and 16 factory option bikes earmarked to be present on the grid at next year's Qatar opener.
The provisional entry list for the 2015 MotoGP World Championship has been formally revealed with just two spots remaining on the 25 rider grid.

The return of Suzuki and Aprilia as two-rider factory entries – coupled to just Paul Bird Motorsport exiting the series – means MotoGP 2015 is set to see its largest full-time grid in recent times.

Though there are few changes amongst the existing factory option entries with unchanged line-ups at Movistar Yamaha, Repsol Honda and Tech 3 Yamaha, Andrea Iannone officially joins Andrea Dovizioso in the factory Ducati outfit, Cal Crutchlow moves over to LCR Honda and Scott Redding gets a Honda with the incoming Marc VDS Racing team.

In addition, Suzuki and Aprilia will be classified as factory options, the former signing Aleix Espargaro and Maverick Vinales, while the latter will enter with Alvaro Bautista and one as-yet-unconfirmed rider.

Elsewhere, the entry list confirms Avintia will persevere with an unchanged line-up Hector Barbera and Mike di Meglio, with both riders getting a Ducati for 2015.

As well as Aprilia, IodaRacing is also yet to confirm its rider for the 2015 season having released Danilo Petrucci to join Pramac Ducati.
