Lorenzo's not going anywhere just yet,
I'm sure he realises his best chance of a World Championship is with Yamaha and with access to Rossi's setup data.
Pay will be an issue with Rossi swallowing more than the lions share but he has to think more long term I would hope.
His time will come.
I suspect this is just his managements attempt to persuade Yamaha that he is worth more than is currently on the table.

Just my 2 pence

Lorenzo will have his own factory spec team, Dorna is trying to increase the field.

Actually.... TECHNICALLY he is not a rookie. He ran two races last season.

Voila! Loophole!

OFFICIALY he is, wildcards don't count lol

BUT, we are talking about Dorna and the money maker, i am sure if they want him in a factory team they will find him a spot, that is if there is room for him in the top factory teams.

He already rode the yamaha, and quite well his rookie season. Tech 3 Yamaha. I could see them welcoming him back at the right price.

I don't think he's as dumb as he looks
He's always followed the best ride (see Aprilia & Yamaha) so maybe we'll see him as the No1 rider in the Tech 3 team with a full factory bike if his ego/pride prevents him from living in the shadow of the GOAT at Fiat Yamaha.
The Moviestar Monster Tech 3 Yamahas, I can see it now

A move to the Pedrosa inspired Honda would be a huge mistake imo
