[kropotkin thinks...] - YMR MD Lin Jarvis Interview: Part 2 - The Changes To Yamaha's

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.


The 2018 MotoGP season triggered a year of change for Yamaha. After two seasons of decline, major changes were needed to turn the project around, and start to challenge for the title again. Results during the 2019 season gave reason for hope, with more wins and more podiums than in 2018, and Yamahas running more consistently at the front.

In the first part of our monster interview, Lin Jarvis, Managing Director of Yamaha Motor Racing, went in depth into the changes Yamaha had made to their internal organization, and how they went about improving processes and communication to make the factory more competitive. In the second part, Jarvis talks about the changes inside the factory team, and what they are aimed at achieving.

Jarvis first discusses the changes made to Maverick Viñales' side of the garage for 2018, and how that helped Viñales become more competitive, especially in the second half of the season. He also talks about the changes to Valentino Rossi's side of the garage for 2020, and what effect he expects that will have for Rossi next season.

The interview also covers where Jarvis believes Yamaha went wrong in the past, and their failure to understand the spec electronics until they got outside help. The Yamaha Racing MD also discusses the process of developing the Yamaha M1 for the future, and what their objectives and expectations are for 2020 and beyond.

Q: All of this focus has been about the bike. It’s not been about the team. It’s about building a better bike?
