Yamaha 2011




Yamaha appear innocent when diving practice at Sepang premiere earlier this month because the motor of Lorenzo and Spies do not have a sponsor. However, on 21 February, the day before the second official practice for three days, will show a new look Yamaha YZR-M1. Apparently, this world championship team will look different after the sponsor FIAT not continue working.

At the inaugural official practice at Sepang, Yamaha failed to compete with the Honda team. Lorenzo, who still favored going to defend the world title, could only be ranked fourth. Spanish rider must recognize the benefits of Honda's three-rider, in which Marco Simoncelli (Gresini Honda) became the best timekeeper in the three-day test, followed by Repsol Honda duo Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner.
