Throughout the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend, Autosport revealed that MotoGP had introduced the 5 producers with the proposal to return concession benefits next year.
This present proposal is geared toward serving to Yamaha and Honda to return to the entrance of the grid, with each factories struggling massively in 2023.
The concept is that restrictions can be positioned on a sliding scale, with Ducati to get hit the toughest in 2024, whereas Yamaha and Honda will profit probably the most.
Concessions – which had been in place in MotoGP between 2014 and final 12 months – had been first talked about as probably returning for 2024 a number of months in the past.
Requested by Autosport if final weekend’s information coming earlier within the 12 months would have modified his thoughts about leaving Honda, Marquez stated: “No, I already knew two months in the past that they’d have concessions.
“So, that will not have modified my plan. And I want the perfect for Honda.
“I’ve a one-year contract [with Gresini] and I’ll attempt to do my 100% to be quick on the race monitor, as a result of in case you are quick on the race monitor you might have extra potentialities for the long run.”

Ducati agrees with the restrictions it’s being confronted with in 2024, however KTM and Aprilia are reported to need harder ones put in place.
That is one thing Ducati, who has gained the constructors’ championship for 2023, has rejected.
“When KTM and Aprilia wanted the concessions, and Honda did not want them, they gave it to them,” Honda’s Joan Mir added on the matter.
“I feel it will be egocentric if now that we’d like them ourselves, and likewise Yamaha, though they’re in a unique scenario, they did not give them to us.
“We’d like slightly little bit of assist to get to the extent [of the leaders again].
“They wished to place so many Ducati on monitor that we’d like slightly assist ourselves too.”
Ducati, Aprilia, KTM and Suzuki all benefited from concessions between 2014 and 2021, with Yamaha and Honda by no means being eligible attributable to its success throughout that interval.
