In the analysis of the audit results, the competence and organisation of the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP and Yamaha Motor Racing team's staff were met with great satisfaction. The fundamental thing we are reporting is that we are proud of the work attitude of all the staff, that allows them to operate safely whilst respecting the environment pro-actively and with awareness. We have also identified several areas where further improvement is still possible, and we are keen to make progress and convinced we are working in the right direction.
