Maverick Viñales has broken his silence. After Yamaha prevented him from participating in the Austrian Grand Prix for mistreating his motorcycle last week in Styria, Viñales spoke to Italian television Sky Sports to give his version of what happened, already cold and with a much lower tone.
Viñales has apologized to Yamaha for the incident, has assumed responsibility and accepts the decision made by the brand to leave him out of the game at this Austrian Grand Prix. Now the big question is whether he will get back on the bike for the remainder of the season or will there be an anticipated divorce.
Yamaha could replace Viñales with Crutchlow for the rest of the season
"I accept Yamaha's decision. It was a moment of great frustration, after a few first races of the championship that went perfectly. It was like an explosion inside me that I couldn't manage, and for that I apologize to Yamaha, "Viñales commented in the exclusive interview he gave Sky.
Curiously, Viñales has first attended this Italian television, an important sponsor of Aprilia, its more than likely future destination. It has been quite a few minutes later when He has also spoken with DAZN, the owner of the MotoGP rights in Spain, and the rest of the international media.
Viñales added that "the situation has been very difficult to manage, and frustration led me to pilot in a way that did not touch. But in no case was my intention to put myself or any of my rivals at risk. "They do not seem like the statements he had in mind yesterday when he published a message on Instagram eager to give his version.
Finally the Spanish rider has stayed at the Red Bull Ring and is following the Grand Prix from the Austrian circuit, accompanied by his wife and daughter. "I don't know if things can be fixed. What I want is to reassure him a bit, let what happened rest and try to come back stronger," he explains about his future.
The signing of Viñales by Aprilia is closed and probably would have already been announced had it not been for this incident that has changed the topic of conversation. In recent days it has been speculated that Cal Crutchlow could replace Viñales in the official Yamaha team for the remainder of the season.
Massimo Meregalli, Yamaha's sporting director, said on DAZN that " we like what Maverick said. What we had to say we already said with the statement. We have nothing to add. We will consider what you have said, but I do not know what will happen after Austria. We had a meeting with Maverick, we decided after talking to him. We continue to have a contract with him."
