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...

No Doubt

He will be back next year in a strong team and on a good bike, a future world champion without doubt. Hopefully his manager will learn from his mistakes. A 16 year old with guts and termination will surly win through

without knowing all the facts its hard to be as certain as some on here. 

Whether or not it was a wise move remains to be seen. His (presumably ex) manager might just admit he was in the wrong and let him go. Unlikely.
Or he might pursue the kid through the courts making a new position for Mav difficult for the immediate future. Thats way of things these days. 
I`m not saying who`s in the wrong here its just that
I somehow can`t see his team just accepting this. They will have a point of view.
 I wasn`t aware of the conflict of interest here. Amazing!
Hope he gets a new bike soon anyway. Top talent. Bloody Spanish again though!

Stupid or what?

Made a big mistake doing this, if by any chance he wants to get into the moto gp class , he'll find that the japanse have a long memory which means the top teams will think twice about signing him, in 1972 a certain Barry sheene slated the new water cooled 250 yam in public , when Bazza went to Yamaha in 1980 expecting to get good bikes, didn't happen for a year, but never got top equipment there so went back to Suzuki & that didn't work either

No one

Likes a cry baby, just made the next two years a lot harder for himself and getting a decent ride,how many teams would think does he see us as a second division team???? Only thing keeping him in the series next year is his race wins, but again throwing your bike down and pathetically attempting to damage it more sums this big up in one word, pussy.

You're right what you've said about Barry, but he still had his two world titles with Suzuki, and Barry was one of the most outspoken, campaingers for riders and safety, and we are still waiting for another 'Barry' to come along.

It's tough trying to tell a talented 16 year old, that he's probably made a mistake, so maybe he'll see sense and work something out once he's cooled down, and we see him on the grid next week.
