Xavi Vierge will remain with the Petronas SRT Moto2 team for 2021.
Following his best race with the team yet in 2020 at Misano 2, qualifying on the front row before running in podium positions before contact with another rider forced a crash, Xavi Vierge has been confirmed at the team for 2021 with his teammate yet to be confirmed.
Vierge has made progress all season and gave the team their best Moto2 result of P4 at the first race at Misano, Vierge has scored 3 Moto2 podiums and remains with the team with the aim of a MotoGP move in 2022.
Xavi Vierge, “Thank you so much to the team for believing in me and keeping me for another year, I am so happy. From the moment I joined I felt so comfortable with all the team and my crew; this is one of the reasons why I want to continue with them. Moto2 is a difficult class and I think staying with the same team, bike and crew will be crucial for us. This year, even though it has been a strange season, we have made progress each race, getting closer to our objectives and if we continue like this next year it will be amazing. We have made some mistakes but we learn from them and improve for the future. For now, our objective stays the same: to be in the top-five every race, to fight for podiums and victories, and then we see how we can finish this championship. Of course next year will be the same, but we want to be in the top positions every race to fight for the championship.”
