Movistar Yamaha’s 2015 success

Movistar Yamaha’s 2015 success

Having won all but one race so far this year, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP are having one of their best seasons to date.

Jorge Lorenzo was unable to battle for victory at the Motul TT Assen, but fortunately Valentino Rossi was able to carry on Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s winning streak.

By winning the Dutch TT, Valentino Rossi continues the successful run of results achieved by the Yamaha factory riders in 2015, as summarised in the following facts and statistics:

  • Yamaha have won six successive premier-class races for the first time in the 67 year history of grand prix racing

  • Valentino Rossi led the Dutch TT for the first nineteen laps before Marc Marquez led him across the line. This, in addition to the 103 laps led by Jorge Lorenzo at the previous four races and the final two laps of the race in Argentina led by Rossi, means that Yamaha held the lead for 124 successive laps, a new record for most successive laps led by a manufacturer in the MotoGP™ era.

  • For the first time ever, Yamaha have won seven of the opening eight races of the year in the premier-class of grand prix racing.

  • Yamaha have a total of 191 points in the constructors championship after the opening eight races of the year – the highest points total that Yamaha have ever achieved at this stage in the season.
