Pol Espargaro Joins Monster Yamaha MotoGP team
Pol Espargaro has just signed a two-year contract with Yamaha Racing right after the departure of Cal to the Ducati factory team. Espargaro will move up from Moto2 into the premier-class, and will campaign a Yamaha YZR-M1 alongside former Moto2 rider Bradley Smith. Investing in the 22-year-old, the contract with Espargaro marks a clear signal from Yamaha Racing to develop young talent in the MotoGP series through the Tech 3 satellite team, and to have an ongoing chain of top riders on its factory teams for the considerable future.
