The new one-year deal puts on hold the prospect of the 23-year-old going wheel to wheel with his older brother, five-time MotoGP champion Marc Marquez.

“I am very happy to be able to announce that next season I will continue with Marc VDS in the Moto2 category. I am very grateful for the confidence of the team,” said Alex Marquez in a statement on the team website.

“With its renewed technical structure, a key part of the current success, I will be able to continue for one more year to improve as a rider, raise my riding level and prepare myself to fulfil my dream of making the leap to MotoGP.”

Marquez has won five races this season and leads the Moto 2 standings by 43 points with eight races remaining. He was Moto 3 champion in 2014.

His brother has a 58-point lead in the MotoGP standings.
