Whispers within the homeland of Pramac Ducati suggest a fresh development in Marc Marquez’s 2025 agenda.

According to rumors swirling in Italy, Pramac Ducati is setting its sights on Marc Marquez for the 2025 season. The decision of the eight-time champion will send shockwaves through the rider market, triggering a domino effect.

Marquez made the surprising move from Honda to Gresini Ducati this year, but his contract with the new team is only for one year. Despite this, his transition to the year-old Ducati has shown promise, with three rounds into the MotoGP season hinting at even greater success ahead.

While Marquez has been productive with Gresini Ducati, speculation suggests that the factory Ducati team or Pramac could offer him the latest-spec bike. Pramac, in particular, has reportedly revived their year-old interest in Marquez.

“Today they are trying again,” Motosprint reported from Italy, where both Pramac and Ducati are headquartered. Despite Marquez’s appreciation for the independent Ducati at Gresini, the report indicates that he “prefers” the idea of riding the updated version enjoyed by the factory and Pramac riders.

Reports suggest that Marc Marquez is open to joining Pramac if the team expresses interest, but he would remain with Gresini if provided with a latest-spec Desmosedici next year, though this scenario is unlikely. Additionally, the option of moving to the factory team remains on the table.

Marquez’s initial link to Pramac last year ended with his decision to join Gresini instead. With Jorge Martin and Franco Morbidelli’s contracts expiring this year, Marquez could potentially fill a vacancy at Pramac, especially with Martin expected to depart regardless of his championship outcome.

Fermin Aldeguer’s arrival at Ducati adds another layer of uncertainty, as his destination within the Ducati stable is yet to be confirmed, with Pramac being the likely option.

The future of the Pramac team itself is also a factor, as their contract as a Ducati satellite team ends this year. Activating a contractual clause to extend their partnership with Ducati could secure the use of GP25 bikes next year, potentially affecting Marquez’s options.

Yamaha’s interest in acquiring a satellite team adds further complexity, as Pramac’s availability could impact their decision. If Yamaha succeeds in tempting Pramac, it would eliminate the possibility of Pramac signing Marquez, forcing them to weigh their team’s future against their 2025 rider options.

Marquez’s focus on his 2025 plans is evident as he continues his adaptation to the GP23 at the Spanish MotoGP in Jerez. He remains open to all possibilities, stating, “For me, all the doors are open,” in an interview with TNT Sports in Texas.
