Get to know Morbidelli: MotoGP™’s latest winner

Petronas Yamaha SRT’s Franco Morbidelli – the chilled out, likeable and admirable Italian – is MotoGP™’s newest winner, thanks to a phenomenal performance at the Gran Premio Lenovo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini. For 2016 he signed with the highly successful EG 0,0 Marc VDS team and took an incredible run of podium finishes, ending the year just outside the top three in the title fight after an impressive campaign. For 2017, Morbidelli stayed with EG 0,0 Marc VDS and came out swinging to take the first three wins of the year – in the lead in the standings during the entire season and taking the title at the Malaysian GP… from STK600 to World Champion in four years. More podium challenges on a factory-spec M1 was Morbidelli’s aim for the 2020 season in the same team – and that’s exactly what’s happened. I wish to continue many more years but so far it has been a really nice journey,” said Morbidelli, speaking to after the race.
