Rumour: Takahashi to take Rossi's seat

Team boss reluctantly takes on hunt to fill Rossi's spot

YAMAHA team boss Davide Brivio is looking for a rider to replace Rossi but says that if it were up to Yamaha alone, they'd not replace him at all.

MotoGP rules state that Rossi needs to be replaced by Barcelona. MotoGP pundit Julian Ryder reckons that it won't be a current MotoGP rider and will most likely be Yuki Takahashi who is currently riding for Tech3 in the Moto2 class.

Last year Takahashi rode in MotoGP for Scot Honda before being dumped by the team when Gabor Talmacsi turned up with a suitcase packed with sponsor's cash.
