The Fiat Yamaha team have set their sights on repeating their fine 2008 season when they secured the constructors', riders' and teams' titles.
At the online launch of the 2009 team and the new factory-specification M1, the team confirmed their aim is to repeat that form in 2009 with Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo bidding to keep the Japanese manufacturer on top.
"In 2008, when we won everything: the constructors´ title, the riders´ title,
the teams´ title. It provoked a great motivation and reaction from rival riders and
factories and they must have all started working to produce a bike capable of beating us," said Davide Brivio, team manager for Rossi.
