Take a look at who currently sits where for next season as we start to edge closer to the end of the 2019 campaign

The 2020 MotoGP™ season is fast approaching. 2019 is flying by and as we enter the final stages of this season, how is the grid for next season shaping up? There are still a couple of seats to be confirmed, with Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu) yet to be announced by HRC and Red Bull KTM Factory Racing yet to confirm Johann Zarco’s replacement. This puts Miguel Oliveira’s whereabouts – either Red Bull KTM Tech 3 or Zarco’s vacant seat – in question despite already being confirmed to stay with KTM’s satellite team in 2020, with the Portuguese star enjoying a very impressive rookie campaign on the RC16.
