MotoGP: Thanks to Thailand, Yamaha is back in the ranksOctober 7, 2018
Maverick Vinales returned the podium, and Valentino Rossi took the fourth place in the great competition for the first in the history of Thailand’s Grand Prix at Chang International Circuit.
Thai MotoGP tour became, apparently, the main for Yamaha. At least, due to the fact that three large-scale companies are fighting for this region, namely Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki. The territory brings to the budget a huge profit due to the large sales of motorcycles.
In total, ACEAH, which includes the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia, spends about ten million units of scooters and motorcycles. Indonesia’s contribution to this alliance is equal to 6 million units consumed. The second place was taken by Thailand, here the annual sale of motorcycles is about two million. There is definitely something to fight for, and Yamaha leads the race.
MotoGP is still one of the fundamental marketing tools. The triumph of the Movistar Yamaha pilots in the TrainGP brought untold happiness to the entire plant team.
Valentino Rossi was in the lead, he led a peleton under the loud applause of one hundred thousand fans who gathered in the stands of Chang International Circuit. The result was somewhat lower than the athlete expected from himself because of an oversight in braking: Valentino Rossi lost the opportunity to overtake an opponent at the last corner and therefore did not ascend the podium.
“We are not in such a pit, as it seemed to us before! We took a step forward. Hooray! “- commented Rossi.
Joan Zarco of Sattelite Tech 3 Yamaha was fifth, went straight for Valentino Rossi, which also suggests that everything is much better than thought.
“The weekend did not start as we thought, step by step, we got out and accelerated. It was not easy for me to find my pace, however, the race put everything in its place. ”- the Frenchman shared his impressions.
And the best newcomer of this battle was Joan’s Tech3 partner, Hafiaj Sjarin, who finished 12th.
We will remind that earlier the company’s business was not so bright: Japanese auto giants Suzuki, Mazda and Yamaha were accused of violating the standard for checking the transport they produce.
