The words of the pilots
Fabio Quartararo: “My winter break didn’t go as planned because I hurt myself in hand during motocross training. But I continued to work non-stop. I did a lot of cardio to make sure I’m 100% fit for the 2023 season. My hand injury is also fully healed now, so I feel ready to fight again for the title. We have the new camo livery, which is a nice change. I like the new look, and it’s nice to change it. But more importantly, I can’t wait to start driving again. I’m very curious to test the 2023 YZR-M1 at Sepang. We will work hard this season, as we always do. We learned a lot in 2022 and now I just want to fight for the title again. My fans have been very supportive, sending me many messages during the winter. I am thrilled to see them back on track this season. We’ll have some fun!”
Frank Morbidelli: “We are starting over today, with a new look. Everything is back to zero and anything is possible this season, so it’s an exciting prospect. We have closed 2022 with a better feeling. Now it’s important to do a good job in the upcoming winter tests, so we’ll be ready to start the season in March with the first race in Portugal. There is a new race format, which will take some getting used to by the drivers and teams, but I see it as a positive change because it’s something that fans will enjoy. I want to thank the Indonesian fans we saw at today’s dealer meeting for their support. Their enthusiasm has given us a boost and I can’t wait to start the 2023 season in the best possible way.”
The words of Lin Jarvis
Lin Jarvis, To Yamaha Motor Racing: “Last year our team achieved a number of successes facing high level competitions and challenges. One of the highs that stood out, however, was the extension of our partnership with Monster Energy Company to the GP of Catalunya , which Fabio went on to win.At that time, we were not only delighted to express our thanks for Monster Energy’s continued support and their trust in our team, but we also felt excited to look to the future by exploring new opportunities to make the bond between Yamaha and Monster Energy even stronger.This year we are entering ours eleventh year with Monster Energy as a sponsor and in ours fifth season with them like title sponsor. This occasion deserved a new livery and a fresh start to match our military focus as we battle for the 2023 MotoGP title. As part of the strong global alliance between Yamaha and Monster Energy, the new look and feel will also be adopted by Yamaha’s factory teams in MX and Supercross, showcasing our unit”.
“We are also grateful to the sponsors, partners and official suppliers of our team – resumed Jarvis – with many of whom we have long-term collaborations. Compete at the highest level of motorcycle racing has never been so challenging as the next year, and it is thanks to the commitment and enthusiasm of our sponsors that we can focus on bringing the trophy back home. A full race calendar and additional sprint races mean we need to be focused, adaptable and efficient from the start of the 2023 MotoGP tests.”
