Leon Camier’s hopes of becoming a MotoGP rider have been dashed at the eleventh hour, as rumours of sponsorship problems keeping him from taking his Ioda Racing Aprilia seat have come true, with the Brit disappearing from the final entry list released today by the FIM.

His teammate-to-be Danilo Petrucci remains, but Camier, who has missed both Sepang tests, has disappeared from the list, leaving the MotoGP grid at 23 riders for the upcoming season.

The list also confirms, as expected Ducati’s move to the open class with all four of their GP machines; Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow in the factory team as well as Andrea Iannone and Yonny Hernandez in the Pramac squad
