Amid the ongoing discussions around a new member of Factory Ducati to accompany Francesco Bagnaia rival teams await a clarification. The Trackhouse team principal Davide Brivio expects no further movement in the driver's market as everyone awaits Ducati's decision. 

In the latest media conversation, Brivio explained his comments and said that they are in talks with drivers but will wait until Ducati's decision. He also said that despite all these talks, the market is stuck and can't move without Ducati's final announcement. It's worth noting that Jorge Martin and Marc Marquez are the top two contenders for Ducati. 

"A lot going on but everything is stuck until I think the factory teams make their move, starting from Ducati,” Brivio told MotoGP.com "Then there will be some disappointed riders that will maybe try to go to another factory team" " He further added. 

"Once [all] the factory teams are set, there will then be some other disappointed riders! At this moment we have to wait. Also, we have to understand with Miguel Oliveira and Raul Fernandez what they want to do. Everybody talks to everybody, but nothing moves for now”, he added. 

Who will Davide Brivio target? 

Brivio and Trackhouse have their eyes on several high-profile riders, with potential targets including Joan Mir from Repsol Honda and Alex Rins from Monster Yamaha. Both Mir and Rins were initially signed by Brivio during their rookie years for the factory Suzuki team.

Rins enjoyed success with five race victories aboard the GSX-RR, culminating in a notable win at the 2022 Valencia Grand Prix, Suzuki's final appearance. Meanwhile, Mir clinched the 2020 world championship title, showcasing his exceptional talent on the track.

Speaking about it Brivio said, "We have our ambitions, to fight for the best possible positions. So not necessarily to grow up young riders for Aprilia. That’s always exciting, and when it works you find a great talent…[But] we want to keep looking for better and better results.”
