Sepang MotoGP: Maverick Vinales quits ‘second division’ Moto3 squad

Maverick Vinales sensationally walked out on his Avintia Blusens squad on the eve of the Malaysian Grand Prix, surrendering slim hopes that he could capture the inaugural Moto3 world title. The Spaniard only recently signed a new two-year deal with the squad at the Motorland Aragon but he announced he had left the team having not appeared in this morning’s opening...

Proper pro

Sorry sheene fan but if you were not told that the company next door offered you a job and they had better equipment to do it with and it would save you taking shortcuts and possibly extend your life because you didn't have to take the dangerous shortcuts you were taking and the person who should have told you was your manager I think you would be a bit on the not very happy side of life or to put it another way I think you would walk if not then you will have a very short working life good look mate and condolences to your wife on your cut short life for taking all them noughty shortcuts to make your job better

Its sad that it came to this. I don't blame MV, but the people around him who should be advising this young kid. Fast rider, but still a kid, who has lot to learn. Wish him best for the future. I guarantee he will be next Lorenzo on Factory Yamaha.

The boy....

....has talent, no doubt about that.


Surely he should be honouring (or renegotiating) his contract with his current team?  It's not his teams fault that he has not been telling him about other offers.  And he obviously thought his team were professional enough when he signed a new 2 year deal?  So why the massive change of heart?


I do think though that he should be having serious words with his personal manager for not informing him off all offers that were on the table.  Sounds to me like either his personal manager was on a back-hander from the team, or his personal manager is also his team manager and has a vested interest in keeping Maverick at Avintia.


Hope it gets sorted though, as he is a bright star of the future, he needs to be on a competitive bike that can showcase his talents.  Good luck to him for that.

He may well have had reason to quite the Blusens team , but potential employers will be very circumspect of him now I should think .

He's been a bit wobbly this year belling and kicking the fk out of his bike. Most had him as odds-on favourite for the title.

Saying this..there is a clear conflict of interest with Ricard Jove being manager of the Blusens team AND Mav's personal manager. It looks like he hasn't told the lad of other offers so he could keep him in the team he runs? Bang out of order and typical of paddock politics in GP.

IMO he needs to ride a Moto2 next year. I doubt he'll have any bother drumming up interest despite the fact Repsol have dropped him.

Could be the best thing for him..if he puts away the hankies.

Dicky Doughnut ...

'He may well have had reason to quite the Blusens team , but potential employers will be very circumspect of him now I should think .'

So just imagine that you run a Moto2/3 team, and Jove comes up to you and says: 'Hey Dickhead - fancy some Maverick next year?'

What are you going to say?

Will it be 'Ooh, yes please - where do I sign?'.

Or will you be 'circumspect' and reject an awesome, world-class talent in favour of a pleb eg. Gino Rea?

At just 16yrs of age, Vinales has the world at his feet.

His personal manager also runs the Avinta team. This manager never told Mack that hè could go to factory KTM. So Vinales signed with Avinta. He's just pissed off with his Manager and rightly so. I am still à fan, needs work on riding in the rain though.
