Luca Marini replaces Marc Marquez at Repsol Honda for 2024 MotoGP season

Repsol Honda has confirmed Luca Marini will replace Marc Marquez in the official HRC factory team for the 2024 MotoGP World Championship.

The Italian - brother of nine-time MotoGP Champion Valentino Rossi - got the nod over a number of candidates rumoured to be in the running, in so doing departing his sibling’s VR46 Racing team.

Joining Joan Mir in the Spanish-based squad, Marini takes on the seat vacated by Marquez, who switches to Gresini Ducati for next season.


Speaking prior to the deal being announced, Marini said: “I thought a lot before making this decision and evaluated the new challenges I will face. 

“I leave behind a fantastic Team that contributed to my growth and knowledge of the technical aspects and complexity that characterise this kind sport. 

“It's time to embrace a new path with enthusiasm, without denying what has been, but with the eyes focused on the future.”
