Rumors about the future of Maverick Vinales with the Monster Energy Yamaha team finally stopped. This is inseparable from the decision of the Japanese manufacturer to renew the contract racer from Spain until 2022.
The decision made by the Yamaha team cannot be separated from the achievement of Vinales while riding an M1 motorbike. Since being recruited from the Suzuki team in 2017, the Spaniard has collected the first six podiums.
Vinales was at least able to sink the big name of his teammate Valentino Rossi. Because the racer nicknamed The Doctor was only able to package just one victory since the arrival of Top Gun in the Tala Fork team.
Now all speculation about the future of Vinales has stopped. What fans are waiting for now is who the tandem is for the next two seasons. Rossi, Fabio Quartararo or other drivers?
‘We recruited Maverick in 2017, confident of his talent. His motivation is high and his dedication to being physically organized, to give his best in driving the M1. In the first three seasons with us, he brought us six wins, 19 podiums and 100% of his commitment. With an improved motor racing for the race, we see a bright future with him at Yamaha,’ said Lin Jarvis quoted from Corsedimoto, Tuesday (1/28/2020).
‘This decision was taken so early as showing confidence that we can jointly fight for the title,’ he concluded.
