Yamaha is pleased to announce that Monster Energy Company will remain the Title Sponsor of the Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP Team and will therefore continue to race as the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team.
The multi-year agreement sees Monster Energy extend their Title Sponsor contract and further strengthen their long-standing partnership with Yamaha’s Factory MotoGP Team. Monster Energy have been an Official Sponsor to the team since 2013 and became Title Sponsor in 2019. During this time, the factory Yamaha squad secured the MotoGP Triple Crown in 2015, the Team Title in 2016, and won the 2021 MotoGP World Championship Title.
Both Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli are established Monster Energy athletes. Reigning World Champion Quartararo, who is confirmed to stay with the team for two more years, is in championship contention again. He’s currently leading the standings by 8 points. Meanwhile, ahead of tomorrow’s Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya, the team is in third position in the team rankings, 10 points from first.
The Title Sponsorship renewal means the iconic Monster Energy 'claw' will continue to feature prominently in the coming years on the factory YZR-M1, all the Yamaha Factory Racing MotoGP Team’s assets, and the riders’ leathers.
The Monster Energy-Yamaha global alliance also extends to other racing disciplines such as Monster Energy Supercross, AMA Motocross, and FIM Motocross World Championships, underlining that Monster Energy and Yamaha are key-players and partners in the motorcycle racing world.
