Andrea Iannone has two possibilities that could lead to his return to MotoGP

According to Sky Italia, Andrea Iannone might find himself back in MotoGP for the upcoming year.

Reports suggest he is being considered as an option to ride for either Ducati or Yamaha in 2025, benefitting from the evolving satellite team setups.

The fate of Pramac remains uncertain, with an extension of their current contract as a Ducati satellite team still pending confirmation.

Should Pramac exercise their contractual option to continue for two more years, as team boss Gino Borsoi asserts they will, Iannone could emerge as a target rider for 2025.

Pramac is expected to part ways with Jorge Martin, who seeks a move to a factory team, and currently has Franco Morbidelli in their ranks.

Fermin Aldeguer, the rising star in Moto2, is set to join Ducati in MotoGP and is likely to find a place at Pramac as well.

The appeal of Iannone lies in his high profile, particularly in Italy, as noted by Pramac CEO Paolo Campinoti, adding to the intrigue of his potential return to MotoGP.


However, if Pramac decides not to renew with Ducati and instead transitions to become a Yamaha satellite team in 2025, Andrea Iannone could find himself back on Japanese machinery in MotoGP.

Yamaha might present economic incentives to persuade Pramac to join them as a third and fourth bike on the grid.

According to the Sky Italia report, Iannone is mentioned as a viable option for the factory Yamaha team in 2025.

Yamaha has secured a major achievement by retaining their star rider Fabio Quartararo, but they could potentially move current teammate Alex Rins to their satellite project, should they acquire one as planned, thus creating an opening for Iannone.

Iannone has been absent from motorcycle racing for four years due to a doping ban before returning to WorldSBK with Ducati this year.

His comeback has shown promise thus far.

Previously, Iannone has represented Ducati, Suzuki, and Aprilia in MotoGP.
