Yamaha YZR500 was the name that Yamaha Motor Corporation used on its bikes to compete in the 500 cc category between 1973 and 2002. In 2001, one of Yamaha's private teams was Luis D'Antin, with Norifumi Abe and Jose Luis Cardoso as pilots. The team only achieved one podium position in the entire season at the Spanish GP thanks to Norick Abe, although it came close to it on more occasions with several fourth positions throughout the season. Jose Luis Cardoso's performances in his third season in the 500cc class were much more modest, having to wait for the last race to break into the top 10, with an eighth place finish in Brazil. In any case, it was not the best year for Yamaha in the world championship, with Valentino Rossi and his Honda being the great dominator of the season. All the races of the year were won by a Honda, except for the Valencia race, which was won by Sete Gibernau with a suzuki.
