Viñales suddenly leaves Yamaha After I tried break your own bike The Grand Prix of Styria traversed the eruptions. Now it remains to be seen if the season will end in Aprilia, the brand that hired him for 2022 and who could drop to Lorenzo Savadori without too many problems.
Vinales could finish the 2021 season in April
Yamaha stresses that the decision is not just for the British Grand Prix, but for the remainder of the season. It was a mutually agreed process, so Vinales was not interested in racing with Yamaha again., which could have been an ordeal given the situation.
“In Styria, the race did not go well, and therefore, after in-depth consideration by both parties, a mutual decision was made that it would be preferable to terminate the partnership. Early separation will free the pilot so that he can follow the direction of his choice in the future And for the team to focus on the rest of the year with a replacement driver,” says Lynne Jarvis, team leader.
