Jorge Lorenzo was at the Yamaha Factory Racing presentation at Sepang on Monday, where the Spaniard, his teammate Ben Spies and the M1 were unveiled in 2011 livery.

The reigning champ Lorenzo’s YZR-M1 has an all-new style for 2011, which features a corporate blue color scheme incorporating the Yamaha "speed block" design.

The 2010 MotoGP season was a historical one for Jorge Lorenzo. The factory MotoGP rider won nine races en route to his first premier title, and earned a record-breaking 383 points (Valentino Rossi held the previous record of 373 after winning 2008 title).

And every championship winner has the opportunity to don the Number One on their machines during the following season, although no other MotoGP rider has done this since Wayne Rainey defended his World Championship title for the third consecutive time in 1993.

Lorenzo confirmed he would run the Number 1 plate, deciding not run his "99" on the Yamaha M1. Lorenzo will still run "99" somewhere on his Alpinestars leathers, though, as he and Spies will defend Yamaha’s third consecutive triple crown MotoGP title (rider, manufacturer and team).

Lorenzo will be on the track Feb. 22-24 for he Sepang pre-season test, which is the second of three. The third and final test will occur at Qatar on March 13, a week before the opening round of the 2011 MotoGP season under the lights at Qatar gets underway on March 17.
