For 2008 he moved to the MotoGP class, riding for Gresini Honda. At Mugello he was fastest in the warmup, and impressed on race day to finish 4th. He also came fourth at the Sachsenring, and consistently scored minor points for the rest of the season. He stayed at Gresini for 2009 after an impressive rookie year. However, he left the team for 2010 as he and his teammate Toni Elias were replaced with Marco Melandri and Marco Simoncelli. Instead, he signed a deal to partner Niccolò Canepa at Team Scot in the first season of the new Moto2 class.

After replacing the injured Hiroshi Aoyama for three races in MotoGP, de Angelis returned to Moto2 at the San Marino Grand Prix in Misano. During this race he was involved in an accident which resulted in the death of Japanese rider Shoya Tomizawa. After Tomizawa fell from his bike on the twelfth lap of the race, he was immediately hit by de Angelis and Scott Redding, who were unable to avoid him. De Angelis avoided major injury and was able to walk away from the accident.

Return to MotoGP

De Angelis moved back to the premier class to replace Colin Edwards in the Forward team midway through the 2014 season from the Brno round onwards when Edwards retired from MotoGP racing. For the 2015 season, de Angelis replaced Danilo Petrucci at the Octo IodaRacing Team.
