Marc Marquez will attempt to win his fourth consecutive MotoGP title in 2019, chasing the legacy of giants like Rossi and Casey Stoner. Already among the greats, Marquez will need to fend off hungry riders like Dovizioso, Lorenzo and Maverick, leveraging experience and consistency into another championship. 19 rounds of racing will determine the winner of the MotoGP 2019, beginning in Qatar and finishing in Valencia.
One of the most shocking developments in MotoGP news during the offseason was the rejection of Yamaha YZR-M1 by Tech 3, who opted to ride KTM RC16 bikes instead. Yamaha’s satellite squad will be SIC, which accepted Angel Nieto Racing Team into their fold. These changes don’t change the opinions of betting sites, who consider Marquez the top rider.
A handful of drivers leap into the MotoGP divisions for the first time. Joan Mir will ride for constructor Suzuki after sparkling results at the Moto3 circuit, most likely to make waves as a rookie at the top level of the sport. Francesco Bagnaia, Miguel Oliveira and Fabio Quartararo will join Joan as first year competitors.
Andrea Iannone jumps from Suzuki to Aprilia, joining the constructor after Scott Redding moved to the British Superbike Championship. Jorge Lorenzo leaves Ducati to ride Honda with the Respol Honda Team, joining up with the one and only Marc Marquez.
Karel Abraham now partners with Avintia Racing after he left Aspar. Johann Zarco will continue to ride KTM, switching from Tech 3 to the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing crew. Franco Morbidelli will join rookie Quartararo with the Petronas Yamaha SRT squad.

Few riders push the edge of cornering technique as far as Marc Marquez, who enters the 2019 season as the favorite to earn his fourth consecutive championship. Still in his prime, Marquez chases Rossi to claim his spot on top the pantheon of elite racers.
Teammate Jorge Lorenzo rides the same machine as Marc, but Lorenzo’s slotted behind Andrea Dovizioso in MotoGP betting odds. Riding on the Aprilia RS-GP, Andrea’s considered the best bet to interrupt the reign of Marquez.
Maverick Vinales leads the dark horse candidates to win a championship with the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP group. Many fans of elite motorcycle racing will pull for his legendary teammate, Valentino Rossi. Considered the GOAT by many, Valentino’s the only rider to win across four classes, including seven premiere-class Grand Prix World Championships. If anyone could win at age 40, it’s Rossi.
Danilo Petrucci rides alongside Dovizioso on the venerable Ducati Desmosedici GP19, giving him a legitimate shot at rising above his teammate and Marquez for a surprise championship in 2019.
