Fiat Sponsors Yamaha MotoGP Team
Back in late 2005 - early 2006, Valentino Rossi had his first taste of Fiat Autombiles SpA when he steered a F1 Ferrari succesfully around a few European test tracks. With plenty of rumours as a result, Rossi was to be driving for Ferrari in 2007 being the most popular. But now we know, Fiat was sweet talking Yamaha! During the upcoming two MotoGP seasons, Yamaha will be known as Fiat Yamaha Team. Fiat is trying to convince a younger audience that their products are the ones they want. Valentino probably just wants to drive the F1 cars more often.
