Maverick Vinales Suspended by Yamaha! In an unexpected new episode between the manufacturer Iwata and its rider, who decided to leave the team at the end of the year despite the contract running until the end of 2022, Yamaha announced that he would not be at the start of the second race. From Red Bull Circuit this weekend. Vinales spoke of technical issues after a tough sporting experience in Styria, but according to Yamaha, he deliberately rode his machine improperly.
“Yamaha regrets to announce that the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team has withdrawn Maverick Viñales’ entry to the Austrian Grand Prix this weekend.”The manufacturer declares. “This absence comes after the rider was suspended by Yamaha, due to the erratic and unwarranted use of the bike by the rider during last weekend’s Styrian GP.”
Yamaha’s decision came on the heels of extensive data analysis and telemetry in recent days. Yamaha’s conclusion is that the rider’s actions could have caused significant damage to his YZR-M1 engine, possibly causing serious risks to the rider himself and possibly creating a danger to all other riders who participated in motorcycle racing. “
Many corrupt adventures have lined the port of Styria in the Styrian Maverick Vinales. The first part of the race went well but after the red flag he stopped at the start of the formation lap and had to start behind his rivals. The Spanish pilot was punished with a long blow for crossing the limits of the track “Failures” On his engine, having already felt some problems in qualifying, he also had electronic problems, particularly in combat wheelie. The message “Pitlane” remained displayed on his dashboard, but he did not return to the pit until the last lap.
Tensions are growing in strength between Yamaha and Vinales
After expressing his displeasure and deciding to terminate his contract at Assen, Viñales appeared to be in a better state of mind after the summer break. He started the weekend at the Styrian GP by apologizing to his supporters for his stance before stating his desire to do so “to go past” The bad situation he’s been in, which consists of very inconsistent results and the origin of an increasingly strained relationship at Yamaha.
“It was this lack of confidence in the team that made me take this decision [de rompre le contrat]”, Viñales explained after the first tests. “So I decided to quit for this reason, because this discrepancy took away a lot of my confidence. Definitely Team Yamaha is great, but not for me at the moment”
“With the team, with my mechanics, that’s great”Added to our colleagues in the Spanish press. “It’s another thing for the bosses at Yamaha, but thanks to my mechanic, it’s perfect and I’m grateful for them.”
So Fabio Quartararo will be the sole official team representative, and Maverick Vinales’ participation in the British Grand Prix, the next round of the championship, is still more than uncertain: “Decisions about the upcoming races will be made after a detailed analysis of the situation and further discussions between Yamaha and the rider.”
Vinales’ future remains highly uncertain.
