The Moto GP jigsaw looks evermore complete for next year as Andrea Dovizioso has decided to take the spare seat at Yamaha Tech III for the first season on 1000CC bikes. Dovizioso has appeared to be the one big name rider without a seat next year after Honda confirmed there would not be a Repsol Honda for him next year. Also with Simoncelli still recieving a factory spec bike at Grenesi the team would have to have run a customer spec bike to afford to run Dovi.
However he has signed with Tech III Yamaha who are believed to be running factory/near factory spec Yamaha bikes for the next two seasons. The deal is for one year only and will be a straight shoot out with Cal Crutchlow to see who will partner Bradley Smith in 2013 as he has already signed a deal to race for the french satellite squad.
This leaves Honda, Ducati and Yamaha with unchanged factory team line ups as well as Tech III and Simoncelli at Grenesi Honda. The Moto GP world championship continues this weekend with Casey Stoners home Grand Prix in Austrialia.
