Yonny Hernandez to continue with Ducati in 2015

Yonny Hernandez sits 15th in championship standings with one race to go in the 2014 MotoGP season.

Ducati Corse have announced that they have signed an agreement with Yonny Hernandez that will tie the Colombian rider to Ducati for 2015, with an option for 2016.

Hernandez made his premier class MotoGP debut in 2012 and began his adventure with Ducati last year from Aragon, as a replacement rider for the injured Ben Spies on the Pramac Racing Team Desmosedici machine.

Hernandez has raced this season with a GP13 Factory bike, often showing good form in qualifying and races. His best career result in the premier class came last Sunday at Sepang, where he finished seventh. Hernandez currently lies 15th overall in the standings with 53 points.

Next year Hernandez will continue to race for the Pramac Racing Team, and at the post-race tests in Valencia he will get a first chance to try out the Desmosedici GP14.2 with which he will ride in the 2015 season.
