Moto3: VR46 signs Migno, Nieto for 2015

Valentino Rossi's VR46 Moto3 team makes rider change for second season, names new team manager
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.

Nieto - son of 12+1 world champion Angel Nieto - joins from Calvo KTM, where he guided Maverick Vinales to the 2013 crown and takes the place already vacated by Vittoriano Guareschi.

Pablo was a full time grand prix racer from 1999-2008, always in the 125cc category, claiming victory at Estoril in 2003.

Multiple race winner Fenati is currently fourth in this year's Moto3 championship standings on the VR46 KTM, with Bagnaia in 15th.
