Who will take the open 3 seats?

I have not started a thread in a while. I thought this would be a fun one.

In the year 2019 Honda, Yamaha and I believe Ducati factory will each have one vacant seat available.

Who do you think will take each seat.

I'll start.

Honda: Miller
Yamaha: Zarco
Ducati: Petrucci/Batista

Who knows....my predictions may be unlikely but I think:

Marc will win the title this year and next and then go to Ducati.

Pedro will retire and Miller and one other will take his seat. Maybe Crashlow? They would be a fun team.

Zarco to Yamaha to replace Rossi

In my opinion, Miller will never get a factory seat. Somehow he got a Honda deal for 3 years (of which he is in his second year), he'll either get dropped or remain in the privateer category.

Despite his current track record I believe Honda will be looking for the "dream team" of both Marques brothers.

Interesting thread to revisit.

I don't think Rossi will go anywhere unless he retires, but Zarco will likely take that seat.

Pedrosa I think will stay.

Ducati might sign Miller.

Rins is going to get let go from Suzuki, and they are coming to Zarco hat in hand, check book open asking him to please ride our bike. Peco is being hand groomed by Valentino to take his place at Yamaha, and everyone is looking at Morbidelli.
DORNA is getting ready to die from it's own success, GP racing has become an all Spanish affair, not everyone likes that.

Zarco, if he stays healthy, will get a top level factory ride. Hard to say where he will land. Watching him ride is impressive!!! Ducati needs to take a chance on a young buck like Zarco who is full of piss and vinegar. Stop signing veterans and sign a young hungry kid like Zarco.

Chaz Davies? Now that is an interesting call. One thing is for sure, Chaz rides the wheels off his WSB Ducati. I'd hate to see him leave WSB.

Peace.
