Alex Rins' future at Yamaha still uncertain

Alex Rins' future at Yamaha still uncertain - Yamaha MotoGP

Arriving at Yamaha at the start of the current season, Alex Rins was determined to forget a 2023 campaign rich in injuries, marked in particular by his fractured tibia during the Italian Grand Prix.

This was without counting on the discovery of a capricious machine, which has for the moment still not allowed him to express himself fully, and to demonstrate that he still has a few pages to write in MotoGP.

Alongside fabio quartararo the Spaniard adapts well, but regularly experiences some difficulty in collecting points. After seven rounds, Rins won eight units, while his French garage neighbor had thirty-two.

Negotiations at a standstill with Yamaha

While the transfer market for the 2025 season is getting more and more lively this month of June, Rins recently admitted that he was still not in discussions with the Japanese firm, which means that he is far from certain of being part of the starting grid next year.

“I am the same as before, I can assure you that nothing has changed, and that I still fight with the same desire to achieve the best possible result for myself and for the team, assures Rins on the Mugello side. However, I still don't have a contract on the table, and with Yamaha we haven't yet discussed the future either. »

Statements which do not necessarily mean that the Japanese brand is in negotiations with other drivers, but in the event that it does not manage to find any satellite team for next year, it is natural that the latter waits some time before confirming Fabio Quartararo's future teammate, already being disadvantaged by having only two drivers when most other brands have four.
