The forthcoming season will be critical to Yamaha’s MotoGP advancement. They are in the tier with additional rewards for cycling development under the new concessions system, including six wildcards.
Massimo Meregalli, the team’s managing director, that they currently only want to use half of those that are accessible, saying, “At the moment, we plan to use three.
They are helpful because, as was the case in Motegi, they will allow [Cal] Crutchlow to carry out additional projects. We can split responsibilities, something we were unable to accomplish this year.
Wildcards are mostly employed on important circuits for bike development or during the manufactures’ home races, as is frequently the case with Ducati at the Italian GP.
Their main purpose is to allow test riders to test in a racing setting. In addition to being a restricted chance, a wildcard has additional costs, thus these advantages must be handled carefully and intelligently. We were unable to accomplish this year.
