    Honda Racing Corporation has signed double World Champion Alex Marquez.

    The young Spanish rider will join the Repsol Honda Team on a one-year contract and moves from the intermediate class to partner eight-time World Champion Marc Marquez in 2020 for his debut season in the premier class aboard the Honda RC213V.

    Alex, the current Moto2 champion will replace the recently retired Jorge Lorenzo, beating LCR Honda's Cal Crutchlow and Takaaki Nakagmi and Nakagami's stand-in, Johann Zarco, to the seat.

    Alex’s new contract is unusually short, but will bring him in line with the other riders in the grid, with almost every seat on the MotoGP grid being up for renewal at the end of 2020, and he has already ridden the bike during the post-season test at Valencia.
