“I try to give 100%, for the fans and for my mechanics. Today after the first route I was able to be aggressive and almost eat up whoever was in front of me. Then, however, the opposite happened in the second way. And this makes me think “. Maverick Vinales he lived the now umpteenth Sunday no of this 2021, with the aggravating circumstance of having tasted the conditions for a vigorous race before the red flag and then found himself with problems on the starting grid on the occasion of the restart.
“Why do these sudden changes in performance occur? Ask the team “, added Vinales, close to the official announcement of a landing in Aprilia for 2022. In the first two laps, Vinales he had even been able to attack Fabio Quartararo, then the problem before the second training lap forced him to start from the pit lane with a race that was now compromised and ended with an early return to the pits by the former Suzuki. Between the first and second starts on Vinales’ M1 the tires and the clutch were changed.
“I have no problems with my mechanics, on the contrary, the situation changes if we talk about the relationship with the managers (Lin Jarvis and Massimo Meregalli, ed) – continued Vinales – up to the red flag my weekend was positive and I was very strong. I hope to still have a bike like the one I had available until the interruption in the next races. I didn’t want to change the tires, I was happy with the used ones, with the new ones I slipped too much and in the end the engine paid the consequences “. If from the side of Fabio Quartararo’s box everything is going well, the same cannot be said for Maverick Vinales, a true separated at home: “Yamaha is a great team and they are capable of being competitive, but at the moment I’m not.”
