Tech 3 to leave Yamaha after 2018
 
MotoGP?

Good for Herve, he beat Yamaha yo the punch . He has an exciting new deal that will be announced soon, says he got the one thing he has been seeking since he joined the circus. Any speculation on what that might be.

My thoughts too, glad he jumped before he was pushed. My bet is Suzuki, unless he has agreed to run KTMs with the proviso thst he uses academy riders.

Balls - I made a duplicate post seconds after this one :)

Wow - So it's happening them!

Herve says that he was made an offer for 2019 that he couldn't turn down.

"To summarize 20 years of an incredible partnership between Tech3 and Yamaha in a few words is a very difficult mission. Since I first met Mr. Iio in 1998, where he gave me the opportunity to join Yamaha Motor Corporation, it has been an extraordinary journey together. All I remember are fantastic memories, great results, an awesome atmosphere and astonishing feelings we shared with the Yamaha family, which will always be in my mind and in my heart. Clearly, to end that kind of partnership is a big decision for me. All I want to say is more than a huge thank you to Yamaha, to Mr. Tsuji, Mr. Tsuya, Mr. Jarvis and Mr. Nakajima, plus all the guys that have been supporting and helping us.

Tech3 is a small company, which has to think about the future and has to weigh the different options. We’ve been offered a deal, that includes something we’ve been waiting for almost since we started with Tech3 and I couldn’t say no. But obviously, we are the Monster Yamaha Team until the last lap of the Valencia GP 2018. Johann Zarco and Hafizh Syahrin will be fighting for top positions and without a doubt, Yamaha can count on us to be a loyal performant partner.

One more time a huge thank you for Yamaha’s support. I hope they can carry on and have the success they deserve and eventually find a partner to replace Tech3"

Who do we think they are going with - KTM?

And what are Yamaha going to do - I think 2019 is going to be too early for the VR46 team to move up to the big class...
Can they run without a Satelite team?

I have exactly the same feeling on this thread as the other. Fuck Yamaha and Lin Jarvis.

Most probably KTM and he will get at least one full factory bike like with Pramac/ LCR.

That would make me very happy indeed.
Maybe Herve gets to keep Zarco and have a factory bike for him while Olivera and maybe Binder will be promoted to the factory team next year.

Maybe loads of Red Bull cash as well.
