What do Yamaha look for in a rider?


“What I look for, we tend to look at the stage just before MotoGP™, so Moto2™ level and early MotoGP™ career. Talented riders, fast riders, motivated and passionate riders. There are many but the number that become World Champions are very few. Jorge was one of the good ones in that sense. Because he was, when he was in 250s, we signed him early because we could see it. He had that burning passion, desire to win. That’s, a lot of riders are very talented but few have that plus alpha, that extra touch that you’re really looking for. How do you identify it? It’s difficult to say but you can feel it, you can sense it.”
