Teruel GP . 23 Oct. Yamaha has announced that World Superbike rider Michael van der Mark will replace Valentino Rossi for the next MotoGP round at Aragon. "It is never easy to step in to replace another rider and even more difficult to replace Valentino Rossi , but we believe that Michael has all

Teruel GP . Fabio Quartararo says he hopes that Italian MotoGP fans don't "hate" him because he is replacing their idol Valentino Rossi at the factory Yamaha squad next season.

Yamaha won't field a replacement this weekend, but talk of putting test rider Jorge Lorenzo on the bike for the Teruel GP has emerged.

Lorenzo has only had four days of MotoGP bike time since February, the most recent of which at the two-day track familiarisation at the Algarve last week – though he is yet to actually ride the 2020 M1.

Meregalli says Lorenzo may be an option should Rossi be forced to miss the Valencia double-header next month, but admitted his performance in Portugal – where he was four seconds off of Aprilia's Aleix Espargaro – showed he needs more time on the bike first.

"Yesterday we received a bad surprise, which we didn't expect," Meregalli said when asked about Rossi's diagnosis on MotoGP's world feed.

"He tried to be safe, but unfortunately he caught it. Now we are just wishing him to be back as soon as possible. He is feeling a few of the symptoms.

Teruel GP . 23 Oct. World Superbike regular Van der Mark will make his premier class debut this weekend after being selected by Yamaha to stand in for Rossi , who remains on the sidelines with a broken leg sustained in a motocross crash.

"For sure we expect him to be back in Valencia, we don't think he'll be back for Aragon 2.

"In this moment, we have not talked yet to replace him here, but honestly speaking I don't think we will."

Speaking to Sky Sports Italy on Lorenzo, Meregalli added: "We now have 10 days to evaluate a replacement for Aragon 2, but at the moment we haven't talked to anyone.

"I don't rule out Lorenzo [to replace], but I think after the tests he did in Portimao it's clear that he needs to ride a bit more.

"Should Valentino not be able to return to Valencia, he [Lorenzo] will certainly be taken more into consideration.

"Lorenzo rode with us for a day and a half in Sepang in February, after which he never rode any bikes [until last week].

"We also talked about it with our riders, despite the fact that they are racing the championship, during the breaks they need to always ride.

"Surely Jorge has lost the habit of braking, speed, acceleration, so he definitely needs to turn a little more on the bike."
