MotoGP 2023: Full rider and team line-ups confirmed

The 2023 MotoGP grid will shrink by two bikes following the shock decision by Suzuki to end its racing project at the end of the year.

This put the rider market into chaos with two top riders in Alex Rins and Joan Mir being put onto the radars of teams and manufacturers yet to firm up their squads.

As of the Aragon Grand Prix, all seats for the 2023 season have been secured. 

Here is the 2023 rider line-up so far:
