How will the alliance between RNF and Aprilia in MotoGP affect Andrea Dovizioso?

The Friday of the Italian Grand Prix left an indelible date in the history of the MotoGP World Championship. In the midst of an increasingly contentious transfer market, Aprilia announced an agreement with RNF to become the Italian manufacturers’ satellite team from 2023, with an initial two-year contract.

In this way, the RNF garage, which currently has Andrea Dovizioso and Darryn Binder, would conclude its relationship with Yamaha while waiting to find out the future of its regular riders, since none have a contract beyond 2022.

Dovizioso has made a torrid return to MotoGP with the tuning forks brand, after sitting out the 2021 season and scoring just eight points from the first seven races. The former Ducati factory rider, three times runner-up between 2017 and 2019, and can boast that he tested for Aprilia last year.

However, the Italian is very sure that, for the moment, the alliance with RNF will not influence his plans.

“It doesn’t change anything because I don’t have any plans for the future,” said the 36-year-old after finishing 21st in free practice at Mugello. “I’m already struggling a lot to be in this situation, so I don’t think it’s too smart to think about the future at the moment.”

Regarding whether he thinks that Aprilia can be better than the Yamaha for him, Dovizioso was very clear:

“Maybe yes, but in any case I don’t know if I’m interested in thinking about the future. This is the point. It’s not about which brand, which team or if I talk to a team for the future.”

“I’m the first person not to talk about the future, because right now it’s not about maybe it’s good for me.”

This led to a conversation regarding his withdrawal. “Right now I can say yes [I would retire] easily, but we’ll see,” the Italian concluded.
