“We have found ourselves in unprecedented circumstances this year that resulted in totally unexpected rider issues for both Yamaha teams. We experienced some unforeseen and unfortunate events, but we have been able to transform the problems into new opportunities.
“Andrea has been away from MotoGP for a short sabbatical, but we are certain that a rider of his calibre will soon find his speed again. We are really looking forward to working with him as a member of Yamaha‘s satellite team, and we will be supporting him in every way we can.”

Son of Antonio Dovizioso, a Sicilian motorcycle racer, Andrea Dovizioso was a natural riding motorcycles. His skills were first put to the test in the 125cc Italian Aprilia Challenge in 2000. In 2001 Dovizioso won the 125cc European Championship and also competed in his first World Championship race at Mugello, in which he had to retire.
Dovizioso made the big move up to the 125cc World Championship in 2002 and scored his first podiums in 2003, taking two second places and two third places. He followed it up with a first championship title one year later. A massive eleven podiums (5 wins, 5 second places, and 1 third place) earned him first place in the rankings and made his name known in the MotoGP paddock and recognised by motorsport fans the world over.
He spent the next three years in the 250cc class as a main protagonist, securing third, second and second respectively in the final standings, before moving up to the big league in 2008.
Dovizioso continued to showcase his undeniable talent during his rookie MotoGP season. His highlight was the third place at the Malaysian GP, and he ultimately secured the top Independent Team Rider title and fifth place in the overall classifications.
His first premier class victory came at Donington in 2009 when riding for Repsol Honda. He stayed with the team for four years, securing 16 podiums in total, and earned third in the overall standings in 2011 before moving to the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Team.
Though his stint with Yamaha lasted only one year, it was successful. Dovizioso is one of the hardest riders to overtake on the brakes and one of the cleanest competitors in battle. This earned him third places to celebrate at Catalunya, TT Circuit Assen, the Sachsenring, Mugello, Indianapolis, and at MotorLand Aragón.
In 2013, Dovizioso moved on to Ducati, helping the manufacturer back to the top. After long seasons of hard work, the Italian was able to challenge for the World Championship down to the wire in Valencia in 2017 after a stunning six wins and two further podiums across the season.
For 2018, he hit the ground running to win the season opener, endured some harder races and then came back swinging – ending the year as runner-up once again. 2019 began in similar fashion with Dovizioso claiming nine podiums – including two wins – on his way to P2 in the overall standings for a third year in a row.
Many fancied Dovi for the title during 2020, however, there was to be no dream send-off from Ducati for the Italian who could only earn one victory and one third place during the season. He ended in fourth place in the final standings and announced his intention to take a sabbatical from MotoGP. It was short-lived though, as Yamaha persuaded him to join the PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team as a replacement rider in 2021 and stay on as satellite team rider for 2022, much to the delight of his fans.
