“Formula Medicine focuses on the physical and mental health of drivers and riders. In my opinion their support could be very important and interesting, because they could help me manage my emotions before races, keep my concentration high, and avoid distractions to prevent performances below my potential.

“I‘m sure that our collaboration will be very successful because we have a lot in common, such as the passion for motorsport, the attention to detail, and above all being determined to always improve.

“Formula Medicine will help me get to know myself and my potential even better. I‘m trying to improve in order to approach the races in a better way. I‘m very lucky to be able to work with the Formula Medicine specialists, who have a great reputation in the world of MotoGP and F1 as well. They will surely be able to help me in my search for improvement.”


“For me personally and for all the staff of Formula Medicine, the professional partnership with Yamaha is a source of great pride because it's further confirmation that the innovative Mental Economy Training, developed by us over many years of experience on the circuits, is considered fundamental for high-level riders. We are therefore strongly motivated to join Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP in the preparation of Lorenzo Daretti, who has already impressed us positively at the first tests.

“For him, we have developed an extremely personalised optimisation programme using psycho-physical resources, which provides constant monitoring throughout the season.

“I would like to thank Yamaha for this opportunity in the world of eSports, which represents a new challenge for us that we will face with the utmost determination!”
