A rather telling quote... "I think we're in good shape and I can see the team working more as a single unit this year"

Factory riders are paid obscene amounts of money to work together for the good of the team. Not a good situation when one rider puts up walls and refuses to share data with his team-mate. Competition between team-mates is great but it belongs on the track not within the garage!

so if i'm not mistaken, from business point of view, yamaha is making a big lost this year because no sponsor to pay the wages for the rider?

Get real! This is FACTORY Yamaha not a satelite team that depends on sponsors for survival.

Factory Yamaha's number one priority is success on the track not kowtowing to sponsors. Yamaha's 'business point of view' is race wins = bike sales!

Pass! Im a fan of motor racing not world championship accountancy. Going by the article Jarvis doesnt seem overly worried about sponsorship, so Im not quite sure why its of such pressing concern to people like yourself.

No need to lose sleep over it! whatever Lorenzo's wages I think you will find they will be more than covered by Yamaha's 650 million odd USD operational profits.

what Lin is trying to say is .. theyre better off without VR. sh#t talker..
Cant wait for the racing to start and the talking to stop..

satellite or factory team, they all need sponsors.
why noone is sponsoring yamaha GP or WSBK might be coincidence.. or not...
