Yamaha MotoGP boss expecting upgrades at Brno

Yamaha MotoGP boss Maio Meregalli is expecting some upgrades for the factory YZR-M1 at Brno this weekend to evaluate before a day of testing on Monday.

Both Maverick Vinales and Valentino Rossi are still both struggling with electronics but Meregalli believes the bike is better than it was last year.

“To make further improvements, we need to receive some upgrades. We expect this for Brno, hopefully before the race, then test," said Meregalli.


“The riders mostly complain about the electronics. I think that is an area where we have to really improve, but I don’t really think it’s all about electronics. We are always working to improve the package of the bike; electronics, chassis and engine. I really hope that what we’re going to receive will help us.

“Our current bike is definitely better compared to last year, where we suffered with the rear grip quite a lot in all races at all tracks. This year it has happened sometimes but not always. We still have a gap to close compared to our competitors.

“We really hope to have both riders there with some upgrades to be fighting for the title because there are still 10 races to go and if we can get something and if we can close the gap, I think the second part of the season could be really interesting. With both Vale and Maverick the championship could be interesting.”
