Former MotoGP Ducati rider Sete Gibernau today unveiled his Onde 2000 satellite Ducati squad in which he will contest the 2009 MotoGP Championship.

Gibernau, who retired from racing in 2006, goes back into racing's premier class after a brace of tests with the Marlboro Ducati squad at Mugello, where he eventually got right on to Casey Stoner's race pace.

The team will be run by racing legend Angel Nieto's sons Gelete and Pablo, who will retire from riding after this weekend's Valencia race.
A team spokesman said: After two years out of the tracks, this year Sete has been working for Ducati as a tester. His tests in Mugello have been very successful for the Italian brand, which has placed great trust in this project.


"Despite being away from the competition, Sete has proven an excellent shape in all the trials done, getting always very close to the best times of the championship and showing a great motivation to get back as a rider on Ducati.
"For Sete, it is very important to be involved in a structure where he counts with the unconditional support of his two good friends Gelete and Pablo Nieto. To be the only rider in the team and to know that he counts with all the help and support from Don Francisco Hernando, also has motivated him greatly to come back."
