Antonelli and Ongetta-Rivacold together again in 2016

Antonelli and Ongetta-Rivacold together again in 2016

The 19 year old renews the contract with his current team for next season.

The agreement signed between the team and Valentino Rossi’s VR46 Riders Academy (who manages the young rider) will allow Nicco Antonelli to start the 2016 Moto3 World Championship season with the same structure.

For Nicco, this will be his second year with Honda and with chief Mirko Cecchini, with whom he established a great relationship founded on mutual esteem and respect. Now the goal is to do better this season:

Antonelli: “I am very happy to have renewed for 2016. The next will be a very important year, the second with the team Ongetta-Rivacold. This means that we can improve a lot because we know each other better and we know how to work well together. I am doing very well with the team, especially with Mirko Cecchini, my chief engineer. He believes in me and that is very important and it is an extra motivation to do well. Now let's finish the season the best we can, we are not too far away from fifth place in the championship, so we will push to achieve this goal."
