Abraham confirmed for 2011 MotoGP

Mid-pack Moto2 rider secures Ducati ride in next year's premier league

CURRENT MOTO2 rider Karel Abraham was formally confirmed at Brno for next year's MotoGP grid, boosting Ducati's presence in the premier league to six machines, equalling Honda.
   
The Czech rider is the son of wealthy businessman, who owns a successful heart monitor and medical equipment company, as well as the Brno circuit and promotes the GP. Handy that.

Abraham Junior, however, has to some extent justified the backing, with increasingly strong performances leading to fourth and fifth places at the last two rounds. Although his form at the start of the season was hardly startling.

Ducati MotoGP Project Manager Alessandro Cicognani confirmed that, like other satellite teams, there will be three Ducati staff in the pit, including an electronics technician.
