Monster will continue to sponsor both the Factory and Tech 3 Yamaha MotoGP teams until at least the end of 2016.

The energy drink manufacturer will continue as an official sponsor of the Movistar team and title sponsor of Tech 3.

"I'm very happy to be able to confirm this agreement with Monster Energy for our MotoGP program," said Yamaha racing director Lin Jarvis.

"As two of the most recognisable brands in the premier class of motorcycle racing we have enjoyed a highly successful partnership together in recent years. Monster Energy's sponsorship of both Movistar Yamaha MotoGP and also of Monster Energy Yamaha Tech3 holds special significance with the unique synergy between the two racing teams in the MotoGP class.

"Tech3 continues to provide a key role not just as credible protagonist in the fight for MotoGP honours but also as a nurturing channel for young talent for the Factory team. We look forward to developing and strengthening this three-party relationship even further into the future."

Tech 3 team principal Herve Poncharal added: "It has been a perfect partnership that began in 2009 with many successes accomplished together and it is fantastic to be able to confirm that our long standing adventure will continue into the future."

That new deal thus runs until the end of the present contracts for Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. Tech 3 riders Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith are under contract until the end of 2015.
