Suzuki has expressed a willingness to keep Rins in MotoGP in 2023

There have been no conversations about a future MotoGP deal with Suzuki, according to Alex Rins, although the squad has stated its wish to keep him beyond 2022.


Rins was recruited from Moto2 in 2017 to participate in Suzuki as the brand’s newest hotshot rookie, following the footsteps of Maverick Vinales when Suzuki brought him out of the sport two years earlier.

Since then, the Spaniard has won 3 times with Suzuki, the most recent of which was in the 2020 Aragon Grand Prix.

Apart from race winner Enea Bastianini, Rins is also the only rider to have finished on the podium twice in 2022, with the Suzuki racer placing third in Argentina and 2nd last time out in America to earn the Japanese marque its 500th grand prix rostrum.

The two Suzuki spots for 2023 are up for grabs, with paddock speculations tying defending former champion Fabio Quartararo to a possible move to the Japanese manufacturer.

Rins, on the other hand, has been emboldened by Suzuki’s forthright comments about his prospects as the contract nonsense season heats up.

“Well, we didn’t start to talk for the next years,” Rins – who is second in the standings currently – said on Thursday, ahead of this weekend’s Portuguese Grand Prix, about his Suzuki future.

“But the good thing, and I think that it keeps me calm, Livio [Suppo, team boss] and the Japanese guys say to me that they want to continue.

“So, like this I’m more calm and I can ride in a better way compared to if I don’t have something [on the cards] for the next year. Let’s see. My manager will start talking in the next races for the next years.”

Joan Mir, Rins’s world champion colleague, indicated in the pre-season that his top objective was to stay with Suzuki after 2022, having been motivated by the team’s progress with the GSX-RR following a difficult 2021.

Quartararo’s manager claimed over the Austin weekend that opposing teams have showed interest in the Yamaha racer.

The incumbent championship winner claims he is not looking at alternative choices for 2022 since he wants to leave Yamaha, but he has acknowledged in latest months that his future is still open after being disappointed with the M1’s lack of growth.
