MotoGP: Yamaha pay tribute to Lorenzo on eve of Ducati departure

1 of 1

The Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team have paid tribute to departing racer Jorge Lorenzo on the eve of his move to Ducati, publishing an infographic that shows just how impressive the Spaniard’s nine-year career with the team have been.

Remaining in contract with the Japanese manufacturer until midnight despite testing for the Italian factory at the end-of-season Valencia test in November, the five-time MotoGP champion will officially become a Ducati MotoGP rider tomorrow – but that hasn’t stopped his old team from celebrating their team in style as he leaves them.
