Yamaha to keep Maverick punishment at Silverstone

According to 'Motorsport', the Japanese brand would have decided that the Spanish also does not participate in the GP of Great Britain next week.


Maverick Viñales will not be at Silverstone either. After the suspension that Yamaha announced last week, and that left him out of the Austrian Grand Prix, the brand with the tuning forks maintains its punishment for the one in Roses for one more race, as advanced by 'Motorsport.com'.

His signing for Aprilia has already been announced, the Spaniard remains in tension with his current team, from whom he already apologized last Saturday, from the Red Bull Ring. However, it doesn't seem like enough to let him get back on the bike. "At this moment everything is possible, Yamaha in Japan was closed until yesterday. The decision was made here, we made it (referring to Yamaha Europe). We had some conversations with Japan, but the first measure was to suspend it with a view to this race ( Austrian GP). Later we will see what happens ", indicated Massimo Meregalli, team manager of the team, after the apologies of Viñales, leaving any option open.

Maverick, accused of revolutionizing his Yamaha excessively after the first race in Austria, would not travel to the United Kingdom for the appointment in which, in addition, he will have a substitute so as not to leave Fabio Quartararo as the only participant in the official team of the brand. Cal Crutchlow would be the one who would make the jump to the Spanish M1, after two races replacing a, still injured, Franco Morbidelli. The Petronas rider, in turn, would be replaced by Jake Dixon, Sepang Racing Team rider in the Moto2 category, who will jump to the premier class for one season.In addition, Dixon is another of the names that resonate as the signing of the satellite for 2022 with the retirement of Valentino Rossi. Therefore, the British GP could serve as a kind of test for the British. If he does well with the Yamaha, the Moto2 rider could close the SRT line-up for 2022, which would also be joined by Darryn Binder (the Moto3 rider did a test day with Yamaha in Brno this past Tuesday) .
