Yamaha did not want to take a decision on the boycott plan number one rider, Jorge Lorenzo, who explicitly told not to go to Motegi to perform at the Japanese GP in October. The team from Japan is still taking the initiative to wait until all matters relating to the Japanese GP was clear.
Lorenzo has said that he would not go to the Twin Ring Motegi for him to race there on October 2. Safety factor so the reason the 2010 world champion. Because the result of the earthquake and tsunami in March, making the nuclear reactors in Fukushima leak, resulting in nuclear radiation.
Spanish rider was (along with the Repsol Honda rider, Casey Stoner) including one of the few riders who vocally expressed his refusal to go to Japan, the headquarters of Yamaha. Former double world champion 250cc class is re-expressed at the weekend in Sachsenring, Germany.
However, Lorenzo and Stoner said the boycott plans before hearing the results of an independent investigation team formed Dorna. In fact, Dorna, which is the broadcasting rights holder of MotoGP, will give an explanation of the results of the investigation team experienced from a university in Italy at the weekend at Laguna Seca, before revealing in greater detail later on July 31.
Well, this Lorenzo statement which led to speculation that he had triggered a "war" with Yamaha, which of course wants his team appear solid in their own homes. However, Yamaha's management did not want to give his response about what happens if Lorenzo actually boycotting the race at Motegi.
To the MCN, Yamaha boss Lin Jarvis said: "There are many personal opinions on this matter, and the Yamaha corporation will only see the opinion of authorities such as the FIM and Dorna. We need to confirm if the environment is stable or not, and then each individual can make a decision.
"I can not say whether Jorge will go or not. Only Jorge can say that. It's hard for me to think what would we do if one or both of our riders did not go. Maybe everything will be clearer in the next few weeks."
