The Gresini Moto3 team will field an unchanged line-up of Fabio Di Giannantonio and Jorge Martin, Honda machinery and Del Conca title sponsorship for the 2018 World Championship.

di Giannantonio and Martin are currently fourth and fifth respectively in the standings and, although yet to win, have taken a combined seven poles and eleven podiums.

“I’m really happy to continue this journey together which started one and half years ago, and to be doing so with this amazing team is priceless!" said di Giannantonio, who lost out on victory in Sunday's Aragon round by just 0.043s to title leader Joan Mir.

"The goal is to improve year after year and race after race. 2018 will be my third year in the series and the goal will be to finish the season in the top 3."

“I’m so happy to stay with the Gresini family next year," added Martin. "It has felt like home since my first test with them. We have a really competitive package and I’m confident we will be able to fight for the title.

"It was already our goal for this year, but things did not go as planned with my injury interrupting the season."

Team principal Fausto Gresini stated: “I’m happy to confirm that the whole squad will continue.

"It is great to be able to count on two such great riders as Jorge and Fabio. Both have grown immensely since joining the team and we have had a real chance to be in contention at the front in all races."
