MotoGp, Jarvis denies: ‘Yamaha will not retire’

Yamaha boss Lin Jarvis in an interview with Speedweek denied the Japanese team’s farewell to MotoGp in 2026 when its contract with Dorna ends. “There is no denying that we are struggling, but I can assure you that I see no lack of commitment in Yamaha. el penultimate Grand Prix in Jerez was Yoshihiro Hidaka, president of Yamaha Motor Japan, and Eric de Seynes, president of Yamaha Motor Europe. They both support racing with energy, they recognize what racing has brought to the brand in the past.”

There is no denying that the situation now for the Japanese team is complicated. From next year there will be no client teams, and Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli are struggling to get results: “They know what we need. We need investment and changes in the way we work. I don’t see any signs of withdrawal from Yamaha. True, even in Suzuki a year ago they did not expect withdrawal, however, I have no doubts. I hope it stays that way.”
