"The motivation depends on the performance of the bike. In the winter I hope to talk to him to understand what it means, but I think he will decide after the 3-4 race," said Jarvis as quoted dailystar, Monday (11/27/2017).

Speaking about whether the Yamaha team has prepared a plan B if Rossi was reluctant to renew his contract, Jarvis answered already considering a replacement.
