Petronas team dreams of victorySeptember 3, 2019
The head of the Petronas team, Razlan Razali, hopes that his team will be the first Yamaha satellite team to win the Grand Prix. At the Silverstone Grand Prix, they celebrated exactly one year since the announcement of the participation of Petronas Yamaha in the MotoGP championship since 2009.
The first 12 races of the season went very well. The rookie Fabio Cuartararo team was noted by three pole positions and three prizes – these are very cool results. At the same time, Franco Morbidelli reached two starts from the first row and finished three times in the top five.
“We could not expect that we would occupy such a high place in the 12 stages of the season,” said Razlan. – We hoped that Franco would be able to fight for a place in the top six, and Fabio would compete for the title of rookie of the year. We did not expect the guys to be able to perform so cool and achieve such high results. We are very satisfied and enjoy together with our pilots ”
“Without a doubt, Fabio was the biggest surprise,” Razlan continued. – When we announced it as our co-pilot, many people said that this was the wrong choice. Now everyone agrees that we were not mistaken. This year he really surprises with all the prizes, poles, places in the top five and top ten. He is incredible and truly talented. The most amazing result was the pole and second place in Jerez. “
“Next season we are raising the bar for the team, which will put us under more pressure,” said Razlan. – Of course, we want to become even better. I am sure both of our pilots will continue to grow. I hope that by the current moment of the next season we will be able to achieve the first victory. Having tried once the taste of the podium, pole or even victory – I want more. It does not matter what we have achieved. Our goals remain the same, and we must work on them. I dream of a podium and victory at the Grand Prix of Malaysia ”
