Jarvis: "Lorenzo will stay with Yamaha for 2016"

Jarvis: 'Lorenzo will stay with Yamaha for 2016'

Yamaha Factory Racing Managing Director Lin Jarvis confirms that Jorge Lorenzo will stay with Yamaha for the remainder of his contract.

Jarvis spoke to motogp.com to confirm that Jorge Lorenzo will stay with the Factory Movistar Yamaha team until the end of his current contract in 2016. Lorenzo has not had the best of starts to the 2015 MotoGP™ season, and there were rumours that he might have been looking to move at the end of this year.

Jarvis confirmed that while there was an option for both parties to terminate the contract early if they so desired, they have both decided to see it through to its conclusion: “I can assure you and I can assure the MotoGP™ paddock that Jorge will be with Yamaha for 2016. We have spoken together already and its already clear, he wants to stay with us, we want to stay with him, it’s done, so Jorge will be with us this year and next. It’s a fact!”
