Andrea Dovizioso reveals the ugliness of his mount in the 2022 MotoGP, the Yamaha YZR-M1. According to Dovizioso, the Yamaha M1 has one drawback that most MotoGP riders cannot accept. This shortcoming can only be overcome with a strange riding style.
WithU Yamaha RNF rider Andrea Dovizioso has officially retired from MotoGP. The Italian rider has announced the San Marino MotoGP (4/9/2022) as the last series he has participated in throughout his career in MotoGP.
One of the reasons that caused Dovizioso to retire was because he felt he could no longer compete with young riders. Plus he didn’t get a motorbike package that suited his riding style.

The rider who has performed well with Ducati feels that the current Yamaha M1 can only be ridden by certain riders such as Fabio Quartararo. Quartararo has a special ability that allows him to tame the M1, which has many flaws.
Dovizioso agrees with the statement of MotoGP legend, Valentino Rossi, who once exposed the shortcomings of the Yamaha M1. “He (Valentino) made me understand that there are common characteristics that I found. With zero grip on the rear tyre, you can go fast easily, but it’s quite slow if you use a different driving style,” he said in an interview with Sky Sport MotoGPquoted from Tuttomotoriweb.
The Italian confirmed that the Yamaha M1 had poor rear grip and only a riding style like Fabio Quartararo could benefit from that shortcoming.
“Valentino and I don’t ride in a strange way, so we can’t be fast. If we can take the positives, the manufacturer can win the world championship with Quartararo instead.”
