2018 marks the fifth season for Valentino Rossi's Sky Racing VR46 team in grand prix racing.

Initially debuting in the Moto3 category, where the team has now won seven races, VR46 expanded to include the Moto2 class last season.

That dual-pronged attack will continue in 2018, which is also Pablo Nieto's fourth season as team manager.

Rookie star Dennis Foggia has been placed alongside Nicolo Bulega on KTM machinery in Moto3, while Rossi's half-brother Luca Marini joins Francesco Bagnaia on the team's Kalex Moto2 bikes.

And if this light-hearted video (2018 team colours at the end) is anything to go by, the riders are just as competitive off track as they are on it…
