Valentino Rossi's VR46 Moto3 team has signed Andrea Migno to ride alongside the retained Romano Fenati and appointed former racer Pablo Nieto as team manager.

The arrival of Migno - currently at the official Mahindra team, where he recently took over from Arthur Sissis - means that fellow young Italian Francesco Bagnaia is out of a ride.

Migno raised eyebrows by charging from 22nd to eighth at Misano, which was only his second race in the Moto3 category.
