First official photos of PETRONAS Yamaha SRT riders

Franco Morbidelli and Fabio Quartararo pose in their new colours for 2019 and the team’s exciting debut season in the premier class.

With less than three weeks to go before the start of the MotoGP World Championship, the PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team riders pose alongside their machines in their spectacular new colour scheme for 2019. A historic season is just around the corner, with Franco Morbidelli and Fabio Quartararo ready to represent the first Malaysian team ever to compete in the premier class.

The riders will be back in their new PETRONAS Yamaha SRT livery from Saturday, with the first of three days testing at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar. After a satisfactory test at Sepang at the start of the month, Morbidelli and Quartararo will continue with the task of setting up their MotoGP bikes alongside their respective technicians, trying out the latest updates ahead of the new season.

The Losail test will be the final session before the season starts for real – 10th March – at the same circuit, with the PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team on the MotoGP grid for the first time.
