Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team – Tomorrow the Movistar team Yamaha will present in Madrid the new bike and the new couple. Rossi and Viñales. Will be Rossi and Vinales the strongest couple of the 2017 MotoGP season? So, we have to wait.
The conditions seem great. However, the Repsol Honda with Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa and Ducati with Jorge Lorenzo and Dovizioso are in good place. The Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team hired the best replacement possible after the Lorenzo’s departure. Because Vinales is the new generation of MotoGP. The Spaniard won 17 Grand Prix. He was Moto3 world champion in 2013. Then, he was “Rookie of the Year” in all three classes.
The presentation of the team will be in Spain
Valentino Rossi will have 38 years. On February 16. Since 2009, he hasn’t won the Title. But his 114 victories are legendary. Marquez, Rossi and Vinales will fight for the 2017 MotoGP Title. The unknown factor will be Jorge Lorenzo. In 2015, the Yamaha MotoGP Team won all three titles. Drivers, constructors and team. The presentation of the team will be at the headquarters of the Telefónica Group in the “Districto Telefónica”, about 15 minutes from Madrid Barajas airport.
Since 2014, the main sponsor has been Telefonica. It is the largest mobile phone operator in Spain. It even has some market share in South America. The Spanish brand signed a five-year contract with Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team. So, until the end of 2018 Lin Jarvis will be the Managing Director of the Factory Racing. But he could have a contract extension. Because the Japanese brand has a great program for the future.
In the 2019 Movistar Yamaha MotoGP Team should replace Rossi
The Italian champion could close his incredible career in 2019. Because his contract will expire. Rossi will try to win his 10th world title. But he might surprise everyone. Because he could run again. Over 40 years old. Remember that he is able to do everything.
