As expected, Loris Bz will remain with the Ten Kate Yamaha WorldSBK squad for 2020 and all eyes now turn to who will be his team-mate.
Baz and the Dutch team came to the 2019 party late on after securing a deal with the Iwata factory and immediately made an impact on the series.
“I am really looking forward to it because in 2019, it was really special, and we’ve been doing some great things, but it has also been difficult,” said the Frenchman.
“Learning the bike every weekend without any tests, just two days mid-season, and we have so many things to test.
“I am really looking forward to it, I am sure we can improve the bike so we can fight at the front every weekend next year. I know the team is really looking forward to it as well, so it will be an exciting 2020 season with Ten Kate Yamaha for sure.”
The smart money is going on Sandro Cortese to join Baz but there are still a few other options for team manager Kervin Bos to consider.
