MotoGP: Ducati Corse announces signing with Aldeguer: will be in MotoGP in 2025

Ducati Corse has announced the signing of a two-year contract with Fermin Aldeguer. Negotiations with the Spanish rider had already begun at the end of last year, when there was talk of a MotoGP debut for him as early as 2024. If that deal had not materialized, Borgo Panigale had continued talks with Fermin, and today came the officiality. Aldeguer will be a Ducati rider for 2025 and 2026, with an option to extend the deal for two more years.

However, it has not yet been announced which team Fermin will ride with, although the clues point to Pramac.

Luigi Dall'Igna, General Manager of Ducati Corse, said, "I would like to warmly welcome Fermín to the Ducati family and we look forward to seeing him riding our Desmosedici GP. I am very happy with this agreement because Aldeguer is one of the strongest riders in the new generation of MotoGP. We have been following his evolution in recent years, and during last season he showed incredible speed. He is a very young guy with potential and characteristics to do well and we will give him all the technical support to make him grow."

Fermín Aldeguer said, "I am really happy to have this opportunity: thanks to Ducati I will realize the dream I have been chasing since I was a child. The time has come to take the big leap and compete with the best riders in the world, plus I will do it with the best bike on the grid. I would like to thank Ducati and especially Gigi Dall'Igna for the trust they have had in me since the first day we started talking. I thank Luca Boscoscuro for everything we have experienced and for what is still ahead of us in this year together. I also thank my family, my manager Héctor Faubel and everyone who in one way or another helped me get this far. Now that I know what the future holds, it's time to focus only on this season where a great challenge awaits me in Moto2. I will give my best to leave this category with my head held high with the best possible results before tackling the new adventure in MotoGP."
