The Yamaha Factory Racing Team has made its first appearance today, with Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi reunited in front of the media. The team arrived in Jakarta, Indonesia, to take part in a weekend of activities leading up to their MotoGP debut.
Today, the duo was busy launching the new logo of one of the factory team’s sponsors, Semakin di Depari. An elated Valentino Rossi said he was thrilled to be back with his old team;
‘I’m so proud to wear the new logo and am very happy to be back in the family. I cannot wait for another opportunity to ride the M1…For me at this moment, I have to be a little quiet and understand what my level with the bike is. My last Grand Prix victory was in 2010, so my first goal is to come back onto the podium as soon as possible and to try and win a race.’
