Since Maverick Viñales and Yamaha broke up, rumors about its future multiplied. The most plausible hypotheses seem to be Aprilia and Honda, while Ducati is relegated to the background. Normal that the pilot has looked at himself and continues to look around, however, the results are needed to accredit his candidacy for a saddle in 2022. This is why it is urgent to do well starting from the next rounds, a double in Austria which, however, is a track that is not very favorable to Yamaha. Since this circuit returned to the calendar in 2016, the Iwata house has never won: five wins by Ducati, one by KTM. In presentation of the difficult test of the Red Bull Ring, here are the words of Viñales, who in 2020 risked an accident with serious consequences twice (getting off the bike at 300 km / h due to a brake failure and avoiding anything. bike of Johann Zarco and Franco Morbidelli, which became crazy splinters after a contact at high speed).
“Last year’s races in Austria were hectic to say the least and the results weren’t what we had hoped for, but overall the sensations weren’t bad. We will certainly give our all to start the second half of the 2021 season in the best possible way. I have been training a lot in the last few weeks, I feel great! The next two races will probably not be the easiest for us, but in Assen we showed we have great potential. We have had some good races at Spielberg in the past, especially in 2019, I think we can do a good job again“He told Yamaha official channels.
