Francesco Bagnaia is said to be close to an agreement to join MotoGP with Pramac Ducati for 2019. Since Bagnaia is a VR46 Moto2 rider and an obvious candidate should Valentino Rossi set up his own MotoGP team once he retires, would a Bagnaia-Ducati deal also suggest that Rossi plans to race on in 2019? - Gazzetta

Aprilia Race Director Romano Albesiano has suggested that Marc Marquez could win on any bike. Albesiano said “I think Marc would probably get some race wins with every bike, but that’s just a guess. A driver can handle a bike well or not. A name you can rely on in 2018? I just mentioned him." - Speed Week

Danilo Petrucci has revealed that money does not influence him to compete and that the hunger “goes beyond the salary”. Petrucci said “I earn 50 times less than Jorge Lorenzo, money does not make you happier. There are 23 or 24 very good rides and we are all very hungry to win that goes beyond the salary they pay us, but I recognise that I have enjoyed defeating those who charge much more than me. I think ‘you earn more money than but tonight I’m happier because I left you behind.' - AS

Jorge Lorenzo has big plans for 2018, identifying that his goal is to be the best version of himself. Lorenzo said “I think that, at this moment, both team and bike are ready to win, so the goal is to continue growing to offer the best version of Jorge Lorenzo as always, if that happens, with the great bike that we will surely have, we will look to win many races." - Marca
