Possession may be nine-tenths of the law, but Jake Dixon says he has no idea if he has a chance of keeping hold of the satellite Yamaha MotoGP seat for the 2022 season.

The Englishman gets his second outing on the ex-Franco Morbidelli bike at Aragon this weekend, but it is fellow Petronas SRT rider Darryn Binder who is still thought to be favourite to join Andrea Dovizioso in the 'reborn' MotoGP team next season.

If Binder does become only the second rider to jump straight from Moto3 to MotoGP, after Jack Miller in 2015, the disbanding of the SRT Moto2 and Moto3 outfits means Dixon will need to fit an alternative team for 2022.

"No, the team, we haven’t spoken about anything," Dixon said on Thursday at Aragon, when asked about his chances of keeping the MotoGP seat.

"At this moment in time, I don’t know where my future is or what I'm doing or what championship I'll be in," he added.

If Binder is the clear favourite, all Dixon can do is at least make the SRT rider decision more difficult, while putting himself in the shop window for both future MotoGP chances and the best possible 2022 seat in another class.

On paper, he couldn't ask for a better grand prix venue than Aragon to try and impress, having claimed his best Moto2 result of fourth place at the track one year ago.

"It's great to be back at a track I love a lot," he said. "I had my best result last year here on the Moto2 bike so I can't wait to ride the MotoGP bike. I'm looking forward to trying to shrink that gap from me to the front guys."

Dixon had got the gap down to +1.6s by warm-up at his home Silverstone round, only to suffer tyre disappointment in the race. Where does he think the next gains can be found?

"It'll be a combination of everything, but I think for me last time in Silverstone I just needed to focus more on the mid-part of braking," Dixon explained.

"If I can just decelerate the bike a little bit in the mid-phase I think my lap time will come a lot easier because I will be able to open the corner up a bit more rather than braking too deep into the corner.

"And just doing more laps will also naturally give me more understanding of the tyres and everything."

Dovizioso is set to take over the 2019-spec M1 from next weekend's Aragon round, ahead of the full 2022 campaign.
