Okay, so this was unofficially confirmed weeks ago, but now at least it is officially confirmed.
Pramac Ducati have announced what everyone already knew, that Carlos Checa is returning to the MotoGP paddock as the replacement for Mika Kallio who said goodbye to the Pramac Ducati team after the Australian MotoGP. Checa will team-up with Aleix Espargaro and take Kallio’s seat for the final two MotoGP rounds in Estoril and Valencia.
Carlos Checa said:
“I really want to thank the Pramac Racing Team for believing in me and for this wonderful gift! After three years is a great pleasure for me to return in the MotoGP world, here I have some wonderful memories. So many things have changed over three years ago, both in the mechanical of the bikes and in the MotoGP world, but many others had remained unchanged. I know I should not expect too much because the Ducati Desmosedici GP10 is very different from the bike with which I had run this year, but I know many of my next opponents and I will do my best to fight shoulder to shoulder with them to try to finish these two races with positive results. “
