“I’m very pleased to have the opportunity to become part of the Gresini Racing team, which has a rich history of great results. I felt the need to face a new challenge, with a new bike, to follow up my process of maturation and therefore I’m grateful for the trust that Gresini Racing placed in me. I’m highly motivated to do my best in order to achieve great results together, starting from next season: for sure we will form a great team, right from day one! I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Aspar Team, that two years ago, when I was just 16, gave me the chance to debut in the World Championship. Thanks to their dedication and trust I was able to grow as a rider and therefore I will never forget what they have done for me”.
