MotoGP: Lorenzo linked to £5million Honda deal

Can Honda snatch championship frontrunner now Yamaha won't meet Jorge's demands?

THE HOTTEST rumour flying around the MotoGP scene right now is that Fiat Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo is contemplating a shock switch to Honda.

Sources say Lin Jarvis, Managing Director of Yamaha Motor Racing, is currently in negotiation with the Spaniard as Lorenzo's contract expires at the end of this season.

But it's understood Lorenzo is asking for 5 million euros to remain at Yamaha - double what he's on right now. Yamaha have said they'll up Lorenzo's fee to 3.5 million euros but won't go any further.

Reports say Lorenzo is now in talks with Honda, who are interested in setting the Spaniard up in his own factory-backed squad.
