    Suzuki rider Maverick Vinales will replace reigning MotoGP champion and fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo at Yamaha from 2017.

    Vinales has signed a two-year deal and will partner 37-year-old Valentino Rossi, who was given a contract extension until 2018 in March.

    Lorenzo, 29, leads the current MotoGP standings and is to join Ducati from the end of the current season.

    Suzuki will bring in Ducati's Italian Andrea Iannone for Vinales.

    So more or less end of silly season.

    No-one of any significance on the move.

    Poor old Cal, will it be WSB for him, probably not, too many Brits there. Admittedly they don't fall of with his precision but they don't want half the grid from UK I guess. BSB maybe.
