Cal Crutchlow has re-signed with Tech 3 Yamaha, which will field an all-British line-up in the 2013 MotoGP World Championship.
Crutchlow will ride alongside Tech 3's Moto2 star Bradley Smith, whose move to MotoGP was confirmed last September.
Smith has a two-year MotoGP contract while Crutchlow, whose attempts to get a factory ride at either Yamaha or Ducati slipped away, has signed a one-year deal.
2013 will be Crutchlow's third year in MotoGP and with Tech 3. He is currently fifth in the world championship with a best MotoGP finish of fourth.
"I am delighted to commit my future to the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team for at least one more year," said 26-year-old Crutchlow, a former World Supersport champion and World Superbike race winner with Yamaha.
"Together we have made huge progress this season and achieved some strong results and I am confident we can be even more competitive in 2013.
"Next year will be my fifth with Yamaha and I am excited to continue my MotoGP career with them. My relationship with Tech 3 also played a big part in my decision.
"Herve Poncharal and all my crew have given me unbelievable backing since I joined in 2011. Yamaha put together a great package for 2012 and next year it will be even stronger.
"Hopefully I can reward their loyalty by challenging for the podium throughout 2013, which I know we are capable of."
21-year-old Smith will take the place of Andrea Dovizioso, who has scored five podiums in his debut season for Tech 3 and is to replace Valentino Rossi at the factory Ducati team next season.
"It is an honour for me to get the opportunity to move to MotoGP with the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team," said Smith, a 125cc grand prix winner and Moto2 podium finisher.
