Fenati to ride with Sky Racing Team VR46 for 2015 season

On Saturday at Misano, Romano Fenati, Sky and the VR46 Valentino Rossi brand announced the renewal of their contract for 2015.

After qualifying at the Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini the announcement was made in a presentation attended by Fenati, Rossi and the CEO of Sky Italy Andrea Zappia.

The decision comes after a first half of the season which has yielded positive results for a team in its first year in the World Championship, with Fenati registering three GP wins and five podiums in total.

Rossi, co-founder of the Sky Racing Team VR46, commented: “The team was created just over a year ago and we still need to improve in many areas, but we have already done well, above all thanks to Romano, who has managed to win three races already. We have a disadvantage in the standings, but Romano is not too far from the top, there are still six races to go and it is not over yet. We are delighted to continue next year. It is crucial for us because Romano has proven that he can win this year and then next year, if we put everything in place, we can do better. And I think that we can continue for many more years. I'm glad to have Romano with us.”

Fenati added: “Next year if things improve we can be more competitive from Fridays at Grand Prix weekends. We’ll have more experience as a team and we can put some things in place so that we can be faster. I am very happy, I was very well received in the Sky family and I'm really happy with the results we have had.”
