Pramac Racing have signed Danilo Petrucci for the 2015 and 2016 MotoGP™ seasons.
Petrucci will join the team to ride alongside Yonny Hernandez next season. The Italian has come back from a fractured left wrist this season, sustained in a crash at Jerez – and on Sunday the Octo IodaRacing Team rider produced one of his best rides of the year to finish 11th at Aragon.
Petrucci commented, “I am very happy to have reached an agreement with Pramac Racing, a team that has helped to promote the development of young riders. I am also proud and extremely motivated for the chance to ride a Ducati. I will try to give everything to make the most out of this opportunity for which I thank Pramac Racing. I also wanted to thank Giampiero Sacchi for giving me the opportunity to start racing at the highest level in MotoGP.”
