    There will be a new team on the tracks from next season as the Petronas Yamaha Sepang Racing Team was officially unveiled.

    The team will have a presence in all three tiers of Grand Prix Motorsports and have already announced their line-up. Franco Morbidelli and Fabio Quartararo will represent the team in MotoGP, Khairul Idham Pawi will ride in Moto2 and Ayumu Sasaki and John McPhee are the ones chosen for Moto3.

    Franco Morbidelli, the 2018 MotoGP rookie of the year, said: “This is my second team presentation as a MotoGP rider and my first with this ambitious team. To be honest, it has been really impressive, everybody is very excited and committed to the team.

    “I love how the bike has turned out and the whole look with the leathers and helmet. I am looking forward to debuting it next week in the first test at the Sepang International Circuit.”

    The new team will make its debut during the first official MotoGP Test of 2019 at the Sepang International Circuit from February 6-8.
