Hernández called up to replace Spies
16 September 2013 – Yonny Hernández will act as the replacement for Ben Spies at Pramac in future rounds, the Colombian having been released from current team Paul Bird Motorsport.
Spies has recently been substituted by Michele Pirro, but the Italian is now required by Ducati for further testing duties. This led Pramac to call up Hernández, who has been competing on CRT machinery this season, to stand in until Spies is able to return.
Hernández completes his first mileage with Pramac during Monday's Misano test.
