Following Jorge Lorenzo’s retirement at the end of the 2019 MotoGP season, there’s been a lot of speculation about what the three-time World Champion will be doing next year. And it looks like he’ll be back in the paddock for 2020.

MotoGP: Lorenzo to RETURN to the paddock for 2020?

During an interview on Austrian TV, Lorenzo said that he expects to be back in the MotoGP paddock for 2020. But what’s he going to be up to?

Well, there are a range of rumours swirling which seem to suggest the multi-lingual Spaniard could get into TV – and reports also suggest he’s been offered a role as a test rider for Yamaha.


Lorenzo would be a solid choice for the Japanese factory team. He helped develop the Yamaha M1 during his time with Yamaha, helping to fine tune the bike which won five championships during his time there (three of which he won) – but at this stage, there’s been no news if he’s accepted the offer or not.

Either way, whatever Lorenzo ends up doing – it’s looking more than likely we’ll get to see Lorenzo trackside for 2020.
