Movistar Yamaha Secures the 2015 MotoGP Team World Championship Title

Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi have finished yet another premier class race on the podium, scoring important points for the Movistar Yamaha team. These points are even more glorious as Movistar Yamaha was able to clinch the MotoGP Team World Championship title this year, no less than four races before the actual end of the season.

The last time Yamaha won the team's title was back in 2010. The title comes as a very neat accomplishment for the house of Iwata, especially as Yamaha is celebrating their 60th anniversary this year. And to make the number 60 even more interesting, the Aragon victory was Jorge Lorenzo's 60th GP win of the career.

Yamaha's riders claimed no less than 10 of the total of 14 rounds to date, Lorenzo having six to his name and Rossi four. Still, there are four rounds remaining in the 2015 championship and both riders are very determined to do their best.

The Aragon rounds relaunched the championship

Lorenzo's win at MotorLand Aragon yesterday relaunched the battle for the title, as he got 14 points behind Rossi. The smaller gap (for the remainder of the season) and his superior number of victories are a great motivational force for Lorenzo, who now has Rossi once more in his sights.

He doesn't plan to give away the 2015 title without a fierce battle, and Rossi knows this only too well. Himself highly motivated by the perspective of adding the 10th world title to his name, Rossi is also eyeing to improve his performance for the final acts of the season and knows that these four rounds will be hellish.

At the same time, Honda's year was nothing like those before, with Dani Pedrosa missing out several rounds while recovering from extensive arm pump surgery, and Marc Marquez crashing out of the races on no less than five occasions.

While Movistar Yamaha bagged the 2015 MotoGP Team World Championship title already, the rider's crown is still undecided, and this makes the final four races of the season impossible to miss.
