Yamaha and Tech 3 to Part Ways at end of 2018 Season

Wow - So it's happening them!

https://www.yamahamotogp.com/news/22...-ways-for-2019

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 would be happy to see Yamaha get a real good dose of karma. They have pointed the VR46 gun at Herve and said go, you're neither wanted or needed at Yamaha. I am very happy he has secured a good deal for Tech 3, as I see him as one of the few gentlemen in MotoGP. As far as Yamaha and Jarvis go, I would love to see them getting a deserved arse kickin' for a while, including from Herve on whatever bike he has chosen to go with.

Don't be too emotional about these things. They are not for the team owners.

For Herve it's almost certainly about getting a better deal, nothing to do with hurt feelings. The satellite deal with Yamaha is very clear, you only get last year's bike and no factory goodies. The VR 46 talk must have been a blessing in disguise for him. He runs one of the most professional squads in the paddock and fully deserves a semi factory deal.

Plenty of privateer teams have switched manufacturers over the years. Pramac, Gresini... It's alla bout getting a better deal, techwise or money wise. Nothing to do with emotions.

There can only be two teams, KTM or Suzuki. But I think it will be Suzuki, KTM--> Red Bull, Tech3--> Monster. Hope they get a good bike they deserve it.

Maybe emotions were not involved, but I strongly suspect it was fairly clear to Herve there was not much in the way of a long term future for Tech 3 as a Yamaha team.

Weren't monster pulling their sponsorship until Zarco and Folger made a great impression last year? Wouldn't be all the surprising to see tech 3 running with red bull as a sponsor using a KTM.

Is Monster bounded to Yamaha or Tech3? If with Yamaha there no problem with Red Bull.

Thats good on you Herve, but I'd expect Yamaha will give you the Ben Spies treatment for 2018.
