From what comes what, we could say. But this is not the case when reference is made to the usual sense of the sentence. Alex Rins was (involuntary?) The protagonist of a market confirmation born instead of a question always linked to 2022, but to that of another driver.
Let’s go in order. The Suzuki rider spent part of his holidays in Italy practicing motocross with Andrea Dovizioso. For months now, the former Ducati rider from Forlì has been carrying out a series of tests with Aprilia and, this afternoon, Rins was asked a question related to the future of the Italian.
Rins’ response, the one linked to Dovizioso, was more than legitimate to be the object of acrobatic dribbling by the Catalan, but what left astonished was the revelation, or rather, the confirmation, given on the future of one of his friends inside of the MotoGP Paddock: we are talking about Maverick Vinales.
“Out of respect, I didn’t ask Andrea about his future or if he will return to MotoGP. But it would be nice if an opportunity presents itself. It would be great if he could ride a Yamaha,” said Rins.
“I wanted to go to Italy to do motocross for some time now. They told me that there is a high level and I spent a week near Milan. It went very well. I was with Dovi, we met to ride and the I saw fit, ready to race in MotoGP. I was really happy to share the track with him, even though he was much faster than me. “
“As for Dovi, I don’t think he will race with Aprilia,” admitted Rins. “I think Vinales has signed with them, even if it hasn’t been made public yet.”
It is also inevitable to talk about his present, starting this weekend. Suzuki brought the holeshot to the Red Bull Ring, one more weapon for a season, that of 2021, below expectations for the Hamamatsu manufacturer: “I’m fine, I’ve had a long vacation and I’m ready, I’m in excellent shape. Let’s see what he has in store for us this weekend in Austria. “
“I am very happy because we will be able to have the rear holeshot device, which we have been waiting for for some time. However, if we do not have it this weekend, we will have it for the next one in Austria”, concluded Rins.
