Vinales Suspended By Yamaha For Red Bull Ring 2

Wow!

https://www.yamaha-racing.com/motogp...ogp-statement/

Quote:
A statement from the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team.

Yamaha regrets to announce that Maverick Viņales‘ entry to this weekend‘s Austrian MotoGP event has been withdrawn by the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP team.
The absence follows the suspension of the rider by Yamaha due to the unexplained irregular operation of the motorcycle by the rider during last weekend‘s Styria MotoGP race.

Yamaha‘s decision follows an in-depth analysis of telemetry and data over the last days.

Yamaha‘s conclusion is that the rider‘s actions could have potentially caused significant damage to the engine of his YZR-M1 bike which could have caused serious risks to the rider himself and possibly posed a danger to all other riders in the MotoGP race.

The rider will not be replaced at the Austrian GP.

Decisions regarding the future races will be taken after a more detailed analysis of the situation and further discussions between Yamaha and the rider.
He is the gift that keeps on giving at the moment - It sounds like Yamaha thinks that he was deliberately trying to damage the engine during the race (a trackside photographer reported that he was constantly hitting the rev limiter in the latter stages of the race)...

I'm assuming that this is the end of his involvement with Yamaha and that he won't be taking any further part for the rest of this season, but is it the end of his MotoGP career?

Was it Baby John that either did or was accused of doing much the same, only succeeding in lunching a motor.

After listening interviev after race, it is clear that there is conflict between team and Maverick. Lets see how things will go after this.

This might be the worst fallout from a MotoGP team ever?

Amazing

Can you imagine the puzzlement of engineers who initially read the data.

This couldn't have come at a better time. If your a fan of Aprilia and want to see them succeed, this is good news.
If they signed him I can only see Maverick turn into Zarco KTM 2.0.
If he couldn't ride the easiest bike on the grid, there is no way he could ride the Aprilia.

What a ridiculous story. Its funny and incredibly sad

Yes, and Zarco has continued to prove how worthless and useless he is post KTM.
