Yamaha have until July to lock in their WorldSBK riders for 2024

Yamaha currently have six riders in their 2023 WorldSBK lineup, but they still have four riders out of contract for next season.

At the moment Yamaha have Toprak Razgatlioglu, Andrea Locatelli, Dominique Aegerter, Remy Gardner, Lorenzo Baldassari and Bradley Ray contracted to their World Superbike teams. However, with Razgatlioglu departing for BMW and Locatelli already extending his contract until the end of 2025, that leaves four riders who are yet to extend their contracts.

In an interview with Speedweek.com Yamaha's Road Racing Manager, Andrea Dosoli, discussed the futures of Aegerter, Gardner, Baldassari and Ray.


“We have options on all riders. If things continue as before, we'll pull them. Then the contracts are extended by one year." stated Dosoli on the future of his WorldSBK riders.

"What the riders earn next year is based on the results achieved up to that point. When we signed them we were confident that they would put in a lot of effort and the results would come.

"Our riders want to win."

Yamaha only have until some time in July to exercise the right to extend their riders contracts before other manufacturers can come and poach their riders.

With the performances from the likes of Aegerter it would not be surprising if other manufacturers would be circling the Yamaha satellite riders to try and lock them in for next season.
