Valentino Rossi has played a vital role in developing the YZR-M1 and their love story is one of the most famous tales in the world of motorsport. The Doctor first tested the YZR-M1 in 2004 and tried trying multiple engine prototypes before choosing one that he labeled a sweet engine. The story between Rossi and the M1 machine reached epic heights when he won his debut race on the Yamaha in Welkom (South Africa) that same season.
