Rossi, Vinales unveil 2018 Yamaha MotoGP colours

Movistar Yamaha’s Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales have unwrapped the 2018 colours under which they will run on a bike that looks very similar to last season’s with no hint of the aero packages that are to come.

At a corporate presentation held at Movistar’s headquarters, the two riders spoke briefly about this season before Vinales took the opportunity to announce he had extended his contract for a further two seasons.

"The team presentation is special every year, also for me, because when you see your bike in the new colours, you start to feel excited," said Rossi.


"During the winter break I always miss riding my M1, and after seeing it today I want to ride it as soon as possible. I only have to wait a few more days! Sincerely, I’m looking forward to starting the new season. Last year, I had one win and six podiums, but also some problems and injuries.

"We want to make our fifth year with Movistar memorable, so this year we will be pushing as hard as we can. The test in Sepang will be important. It’s the first opportunity for my guys to get together this year, which will be fun, but we’ll soon get serious, because we want to get an idea of our level as soon as possible.”
