Yamaha announces plans

Nothing too surprising but Yamaha is announcing its (rider) plans for the 2020-2022 seasons, with regards to both Quartararo and, possibly, Rossi.

Fabio is getting full Spec bike and Factory support for 2020, under Petronas. A full factory ride in 2021-2022. Rossi is still here.

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

Last week was a busy week for the Tuning Fork Brand - announced Mav isback for 2 years, Fabio getting the bump next year to Monster Factory team and a full Spec bike for '20, and that Valentino is allowed until mid-season this year to decide if he wants Fabio's Petronas bike with full support, or if he will retire and take the grid spot Carmelo is holding for his VR46 team and 2 bikes in GP as team owner.

My ambition outweighed my talent.

My bet is on VR46 team. I think he's too close to bikes to get seriously distracted by car racing.

If I was a betting man, I'd say you are right.
