We will stay together for three years.´

Biaggi, meanwhile, echoed the enthusiasm shown by his new employers: ´I was dreaming of racing with Honda again and Pramac made my dream come true,´ he said. `I have the enthusiasm and willing of a little boy. I can´t wait to start this new adventure. Honda is one of the most prestigious factories in the whole world and I´ll find a lot of old friends there.´
