The two-year contract will see the energy brand receive greater exposure with the Team as their sponsorship commitment increases.

Lin Jarvis – Yamaha Motor Racing, Managing Director
“After a successful first season together in 2013, the decision to collaborate further with SuisseGas through 2014 and 2015 is a very welcome one. We consider them a very important partner for Yamaha Factory Racing and are confident we will continue to benefit from the mutual satisfaction gained. As a premium brand involved in many sporting disciplines we share a great synergy. We look forward to strengthening our relationship through a number of initiatives at GP circuits and also away from race weekends.”
Gianluca Borelli – SuisseGas, Business Development Manager
“We are very proud to be able to continue as Official Sponsor, the route taken last year alongside the Team Yamaha Factory Racing, for the 2014 and 2015 MotoGP season. It is a matter of great satisfaction being associated with a winning team and two World Champions such as Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi. This is a major sponsorship for us that fits seamlessly into policy in support of high-profile sports teams and that our Group strongly wanted to pursue since its inception.”
