A 32-strong field, which includes British duo Danny Webb and John McPhee, will contest the second Moto3 world championship in 2013.

Webb is down to ride a Suter Honda machine on the provisional entry list released today, but it is understood the final decision has yet to be taken on which chassis his Ambrogio Racing squad will use when the new season gets underway on April 7 in Qatar.

Scot McPhee will partner Aussie Jack Miller on an FTR-Honda for the Racing Team Germany squad in what will be his first full season in the world championship.

With German Sandro Cortese moving to Moto2, the hot pre-season favourite is likely to be Spaniard Maverick Vinales, with other contenders including Jonas Folger, Romano Fenati and rising Malaysian star Zulfahmi Khairuddin.
