The factory Yamaha team has become the latest MotoGP squad to reveal the colours it will race in the 2020 season at its official launch event in Malaysia.

Yamaha stole the headlines last week when it firmed up its line up for the two years beyond 2020, with Maverick Vinales staying put, and Fabio Quartararo sensationally replacing nine-time MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi.

A day before the first test of the year begins, Yamaha unwrapped a largely unchanged livery for its 2020 YZR-M1, which again features prominent title sponsorship space for energy drinks giant Monster Energy.

Yamaha gave its test roster a boost last month when it announced it had signed its now retired triple world champion Jorge Lorenzo in the role, with the Spaniard returning to the M1 at the start of the week during the shakedown.

Satellite Yamaha outfit Petronas SRT also pulled the covers off its 2020 livery at its home circuit of Sepang, revealing a modified colour scheme to the one it ran last year.

Entering its sophomore season after a stunning maiden campaign last year - in which it was the top independent outfit in the teams' standings in fourth, and tallied up seven podiums with Quartararo - SRT will field an unchanged line-up of Franco Morbidelli and Quartararo.
