Alex Marquez will remain at Gresini Racing Ducati for the 2025 MotoGP season, and into 2026.

The Spaniard has signed a new two-year contract with Gresini, which he joined at the beginning of 2023.

So far, Marquez’ time at Gresini has yielded two Sprint wins, coming at last year’s British Grand Prix and Malaysian Grand Prix, while this year he has achieved a best result of fifth coming in the Spanish Grand Prix back in April.

On remaining with Gresini for another two years, Marquez said: "Staying with Gresini was my main goal. Since I joined this team, my target has been to consistently get close to the best, and it's something I haven't achieved yet. 

“The start of the season wasn't what we hoped for, but the team is strong and I know where we can go.”

Nadia Padovani, Gresini Racing team owner, added: "Alex is our pupil. Since he joined two years ago, the synergy between him and the team has been incredible and has strengthened with each race. We know his potential; he has already shown it and just needs consistency.

“Renewing with him was an obvious move for us because we are aware of his value both on and off the track. The results will come this year too, I am absolutely certain of it."

Currently, Marquez is partnered at Gresini by his brother, Marc Marquez, who will join the factory Ducati team next year. As a result, the identity of Marquez’ teammate for 2025 is uncertain, as is the specification of Desmosedici he will be given — Pramac Racing’s decision to leave Ducati for Yamaha next year leaves its factory-spec Desmosedicis open, but their allocation between Gresini and VR46 remains undetermined.
