Andrea Davizioso will end his MotoGP season and career after the San Marino Grand Prix. Cal Crutchlow will take his place in the final six races of the year.
Andrea Davizioso made it clear at the beginning of the summer that he would no longer compete in MotoGP in 2023. The Yamaha rider will also not complete the 2022 season. This Thursday, on the sidelines of the British Grand Prix, he announced that his career will end on the evening of September 4. after the Misano race, in front of the home Italian crowd.
The decision comes after the three-time MotoGP world runner-up did not return to competition, riding the Yamaha YZR-M1 from September 2021. Struggling with the Japanese bike, he scored just 22 points in 16 races. Too little to claim to stay in the premier category and even enjoy it, someone who has repeatedly said he was there to fight up front.
Yamaha test rider Cal Crutchlow will take his place on the WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team machine for the remainder of the season. Therefore, he will participate in the Grand Prix of Aragon, Japan, Thailand, Australia, Malaysia and Valencia.
