"I am very happy that we have concluded the agreement with Valentino for 2015 and 2016. Since his return to Yamaha in 2013 it's been a very positive experience for everybody involved. After two difficult years ‘away from home' Valentino returned last year, not only to us but also to his beloved YZR-M1. Fans of racing across the world were happy to see him rediscover his competitive performance and witness him take pleasure in riding and having fun again on two wheels. The "fun factor" is crucial to Valentino to get results – in fact when he first joined us in 2004 one of the most important motivations for his move to Yamaha was his desire to create an environment where he could enjoy racing. His enjoyment is obvious to all who meet him at the MotoGP events or who see him race on TV and is reflected in his excellent race results this year where he is currently in second position in the World Championship. We look forward to the next two and a half years together and it is our intention that Valentino will remain with Yamaha until the end of his sporting career and beyond."
“我很高兴地宣布，我与雅马哈签了一份新合同，在未来两年里继续在MotoGp继续在一起。我为本公告感到骄傲。这对我来说非常重要，因为我真的很喜欢和我的船员合作来自团队的家伙，既与我一直和我一起毕业。这很棒，因为这是我的目标;我想继续，我感觉很好，我有动力，不断尽我所能。I am very happy that I can keep riding my YZR-M1, that has been my love for so many years and will still be my love this year and the following two seasons. A big ‘Thank You' to everybody, I will try to keep giving the maximum to arrive in front and make good races. Enjoy!"
