Aleix Espargaro has signed a new, two-year deal which will keep him in the Aprilia MotoGP team until the end of 2020.

The Spaniard is keen to continue his development curve with the RS-GP and take it on to the podium sooner rather than later.

“I am very happy to stay with Aprilia for another two years. For the first time in my career, I am able to have stability and this is important to improve and grow together,” said Espargaro.

“I have a sole objective, an obsession and that is to take the RS-GP to the podium. I wish to thank Aprilia and my entire team. We will continue working at 100% through 2020.”
