Yamaha doesn’t want to make the same mistakes as with Lorenzo

The crazy 2020 Moto GP season has come to an end, but preparations for 2021 are already in full swing. Yamaha now admitted that they made mistakes last year regarding the assignments of their test rider Jorge Lorenz.


Yamaha admitted to have tested not enough in 2020, because they did not let the three-time MotoGP world champion Lorenzo test in Misano. Yamaha had skipped the test and that although the MotoGP season was already shortened because of the Corona pandemic. There was also no wild card start because of the rule changes due to the special season.

Lorenzo came only twice into action with the M1, in Sepang and Portimao.


In 2021 Cal Crutchlow will be the new Yamaha test rider and with him they don’t want to make the same mistakes again:

“We had a full testing programme planned for Jorge Lorenzo but we were using a Japanese testing team with some European staff and in reality we only ran him for two days in Sepang and then the pre-Portimao test [on 2019 spec bikes],” Jarvis is quoted as saying.

“We’re not going to make the same mistake twice. We will definitely be running a more intensive test programme next year. We have a lot of information from this year, so our engineers will change the chassis and work on improving [consistency of the bike].”
