MotoGP Malaysia: Moto3: Fifteen year-old Quartararo heads up 2015 entry list

The provisional 2015 Moto3 World Championship entry list includes the highly touted 15 year-old Fabio Quartararo.
The provisional 2015 Moto3 World Championship entry list has been revealed with a full grid of 33 bikes set to line up for the Qatar opener next March.

With the current top three riders – Alex Marquez, Jack Miller and Alex Rins – all progressing to Moto2 or MotoGP next season, Moto3 will see a combination of new and emerging talent in the leading teams.

Red Bull KTM Ajo will be led by Miguel Oliveira, Brad Binder and Karel Hanika, while the Estrella Galicia 0,0 team will feature an all-new line-up of Jorge Navarro and Fabio Quartararo, the latter set to make his debut at 15-years-old due to a change in the minimum age regulations for a reigning CEV champion.

Race winners in 2014, Romano Fenati and Alexis Masbou will both return in 2015, the former staying with Valentino Rossi's Sky VR46 team, while the latter moves over to SaxoPrint-RTG Honda. He takes the place of Efren Vazquez who, despite currently running fifth in the standings, is not listed to compete in any championship.

Elsewhere, Ana Carrasco will return to Moto3 with Aleix Espargaro's BOE41 RBA Team alongside Niklas Ajo, while the proposed Caterham Moto3 team has seemingly morphed into an entry run by Malaysia's Sepang International Circuit.

John McPhee and Danny Kent will continue to fly the flag for Britain, the former still with SaxoPrint-RTG and the latter moving to Kiefer Racing Honda.

Shrimpling: Does anybody know why Maria Herrera is not on the list? She was supposed to be riding for the Estrella Galicia team.
I read Alzamora has said he is 'working on it' , to either get her on a third bike in the Estrella Galicia box or find her a ride in a different team. Crash why is Quartararo listed as Spanish, he's French.

Some really fast Italians, 2 optimistic Brits, a level headed Portuguese, a rookie frenchman and 2 wild south africans.....what could possibly go wrong....and thats before you even consider a czech on a factory bike, a fin that crashes alot, a brazilian with a lot of sponersherip and a Malaysian and a japenese and whoever else ive missed haha
