"Maverick is a mystery"

Lin Jarvis, director of Yamaha, spoke about the ability of a "difficult to understand" rider: "He is powerful fighting up, but he falls with the same force".


The conflict between Maverick and Yamaha has put an end to a breakdown of "mutual agreement" that however, little reciprocity covers from the moment in which the Japanese structure decided to move tab by separating the Roses rider from the team during the second race of Spielberg. Viñales' performance on the Austrian track was the final culmination of a relationship in which only the good words remain in a statement that Lin Jarvis, director of Yamaha MotoGP, has already come even before the summer break.

"When we felt that Maverick was no longer happy with us, we looked for a solution. Our principle has always been not to force any driver to stay. If he is not happy, he better leave us. It is the best for the team, for him pilot and for all those affected ", says Jarvis after saying goodbye to a pilot who never showed his most conflictive side:" Viñales is extremely talented, but at the same time he is a mystery. For him it is very important to feel comfortable, strong and happy You have to feel that you are in the right place and then you will be able to achieve the desired results.
