We will not see Lorenzo Baldassarri riding in MotoGP next year after some rumors during Summer break. Indeed, it seems that former Moto2 Championship Leader was about to join Reale Avintia taking Tito Rabat's place in 2020 changing even his manager leaving VR46 Riders Academy. For the moment we do not know if he will leave VR46 Academy but surely Lorenzo will stay in Moto2 for another year as long as Pons renewed his contract also for 2020.
The goal is clear for them, which is fighting for the World Title next season with Lorenzo Baldassarri and Augusto Fernandez, even if title chances this year are surely not over. The Italian started really well the Championship winning 3 races in the first 4 grand prix but made too many mistakes with Alex Marquez and Thomas Luthi coming back overtaking him in the Championship standings.
Also Fernandez overtook Lorenzo despite missing some races due to an injury, with the Spaniard who made an impressive run when he came back on track being able to win his first race of Moto2 career as well. Pons confirmed line-up for 2020 renewing Augusto too, who surely will be a title contender next season; his title chances are not over even for this season as long as only 34 points separate him from the top.
