Lin Jarvis, as Yamaha Motor Racing’s Managing Director, was aware that in the past Yamaha had many great riders, but this season’s composition was considered the best of all time.
Yamaha Moto Racing this season is actually fronted by the same riders as the 2019 season campaign yesterday.
Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales are still a mainstay on the Yamaha Monster Energy Team, while Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli are on the Yamaha SRT Satellite Petronas team.
Valentino Rossi, Maverick Vinales and Franco Morbidelli have collected 12 total world titles if these three riders are combined. While Fabio Quartararo hasn’t won any titles, but he has the potential for it.
This is what makes Lin Jarvis assume that the composition of Yamaha Moto Racing riders in the 2020 season is the best throughout Yamaha’s participation in this competition.
Lin Jarvis himself has held the position of Managing Director of Yamaha Moto Racing since 1999. In the past, Yamaha also had many great riders like Giacomo Agostini, Kenny Roberts, Johnny Cecotto and many more.
But according to him it’s difficult to compare riders who are in different eras.
“Do we have the best Yamaha team of all time? Maybe yes. But we better just agree that they are the best group for the past few years, “said Jarvis, who has served as Managing Director of Yamaha Motor Racing since 1999.
“That’s because sometimes I see old photos, there are Giacomo Agostini, Kenny Roberts, Johnny Cecotto, and others. Difficult to compare different generations. But if you see some time lately, our line-up is very strong, “he continued.
In fact, the composition of the Yamaha Moto Racing team in the upcoming 2021 season is also likely to not change much.
Indeed, Valentino Rossi is no longer a tandem of Maverick Vinales, as Yamaha’s decision to reach an agreement with Fabio Quartararo next season.
However, it is also very likely that The Doctor will join the Yamaha SRT Petronas Team along with Franco Morbidelli next season. Unless the person concerned really intends to hanging up his helmet.
