Bagnaia to remain at Sky Racing Team VR46 in 2018

Italian Moto2™ rookie signed up for a sophomore year

Francesco Bagnaia has been announced as remaining with Sky Racing Team VR46 in Moto2™ in 2018, after a stunning start to the season that has seen him take an early lead in the fight for Rookie of the Year. Already a podium finisher - twice - the renewal secures the Italian's future for another season in the VR46-supported intermediate class team.

Francesco Bagnaia: "Just a year ago, I decided to face the Moto2 challenge with the Sky Racing Team VR46, a Team that, with the VR46 Riders Academy and Sky, has always supported me. Today I'm proud to say that in 2018 I will continue to work in this big family for achieving great results. With more experience I'm sure we will be able to remain close to the top guys".

Pablo Nieto, Team Manager: "I'm really happy to confirm that Pecco will stay with us next year in Moto2. We made our debut in the new category in Qatar, but thanks to this talented rookie and his extraordinary ability to adapt his riding style to the new bike, we have already had some nice satisfaction. His choice to stay in the Sky Racing Team VR46 is an extra injection of confidence for everybody to make even more effort and give 100% every weekend. As a team, we will continue to support him by providing all our professionalism, commitment and passion to help him in his growth path and to show, not only on track, his incredible talent. I'm sure we can achieve important goals together."
