Yamaha Monster Team racer, Maverick Vinales also commented on the future of his team mate, Valentino Rossi, which has not been clear so far.
For information, Valentino Rossi is certainly no longer a part of the Tala Fork Manufacturers next season. Even so, Rossi himself opened the opportunity to continue racing next season with the Yamaha SRT Petronas team, instead of directly hanging the helmet at the age of 41 years.
It’s just that the spotlight is the fact that until now there has been no conversation between Rossi with the Yamaha SRT Petronas. It is believed that this is because The Doctor himself has not yet made a certain decision regarding his future.
In his explanation, Rossi claimed to be confused because the postponement of MotoGP this season made him unable to evaluate his performance on the circuit.
Vinales himself did not know anything about the future of his colleague, but on the one hand he claimed to be surprised why there was no information from Yamaha officials.
“To be honest, I don’t know what our situation will be. There aren’t many comments about this in our team. Everyone is completely silent. I hope Vale can continue his career, “Vinales said via El Larguero de la Cadena SER, as quoted by Diario AS.
What is clear, according to the 25-year-old rider, Valentino Rossi is the figure of the legendary rider who became his inspiration and motivation in trying the asphalt track.
“I am happy to compete against him. He is a legend, one of the best in the world, and fighting it really motivates me. One thing that has never been lost from Vale is motivation, “said the Spanish rider.
Unlike Rossi, Maverick Vinales himself found a good fortune. He has agreed a two-year contract with the Monster Energy Yamaha team. That is, the relevant will remain at the Japanese manufacturer in the 2021 and 2022 seasons.
“This new contract makes me calmer. We are working well, and I see the support of the manufacturer, who also continues to work hard and go in the same direction as me, “he concluded.
Meanwhile, Yamaha itself has appointed Fabio Quartararo to replace Valentino Rossi next season.
