The MotoGP 2021 season will see a new major partnership between Monster Energy and Team Suzuki Ecstar after signing a multi-year agreement with the Japanese manufacturer. This makes a lot of sense considering that both Joan Mir and Alex Rins are already sponsored riders under the Monster Energy flag.
The sponsorship will change the entire look for the Suzuki Ecstar squad, including its championship-winning Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP machinery. Looks like there will be two Monster Energy teams in the 2021 grid next year, including the Yamaha factory squad.
According to Rodney Sack, Chairman and CEO of Monster Energy, “We are very proud to announce the partnership between Monster Energy and Team Suzuki Ecstar, commencing from the 2021 season, as we further expand and solidify our continued commitment and support for MotoGP and motor racing around the world. Having spent the last two years supporting both Alex and Joan as they raced for the team with great success, it is a very natural progression to come on board as an official partner.”
As for Davide Brivio, Team Manager, “We are very happy to announce this agreement with Monster Energy. It’s a company which has been very active in MotoGP and other motorsport disciplines. We started negotiating before the beginning of the year and we are very proud to have Monster Energy branding on our bike for the years to come.”
