Vinales Back After Humbling Climbdown

Less than one week after controversially walking out on his Avintia Blusens Moto3 squad on the eve of the Sepang race, Maverick Vinales will be back in Australia this weekend after a humbling climbdown. Vinales stunned the paddock in Malaysia when he walked out with three races remaining while he still had a mathematical chance of capturing the inaugural Moto3 world...

Another self centred prima dona with little thought for the consequences of his words or actions... he should fit in well in MotoGP.

Perhaps so Hedgy

I'm picking a lot of the latins have had smoke blown up their arses from a young age.

Regardless of the circumstances, or assumed justifications, what Vinales did last week was waay out of line. Was it off his own back (seems like the actions of a petulant teenager) or with counsel? If the later it was mighty poor judgement.

He's done himself, along with his team and sponsors, immeasurable short and possibly medium, or longer term damage.

Yeh but

he`s not the first teenager to do something daft. 

Nothing to do with being Latin. All to do with being 16 I think. Well, that and his personal manager also being his team boss which is a massive conflict of interests.
I`m glad he`s back, and I hope people in the paddock have short memories.

Ricard Jove ...

... just after the news of Vinales' split was made public, the reserved and respected Eugene Laverty tweeted this: 'Two years ago this sad act (Jove) refused to shake my hand at Silverstone. It's good to see that he's not ruining another riders career.'

And then the Spaniards went on the attack with Aleix Espagaro branding Jove on Twitter 'a career breaker' - a view endorsed by, amongst others, his brother Pol, Axel Pons, David Salom and current Avintia Blusens Moto2 rider Julian Simon (who is leaving at the end of the season).

In MotoGP this year, Jove has:

Hired Jonny Hernandez;

Sacked Jonny Hernandez;

Re-hired Jonny Hernandez;

Hired Ivan Silva;

Demoted Ivan Silva;

Promoted Ivan Silva;

Hired David Salom;

Sacked David Salom.

Vinales described the Avintia Blusens BQR team and its management as 'second division' - he was being very generous.

Oh dear

I'm a big fan of young Vinales but I suspect this will do him no good at all. Ideally you wait a few years before pissing HRC off and the knock on from this could hamper his long term future. It's all a bit odd really as the lad is blessed with much talent and speed.

And ...

... just to underline how bad the situation is at this team, all of the top riders are leaving:

In MotoGP, Jonny Hernandez is leaving for Gresini (CRT);

In Moto2, Julian Simon is leaving - possilbly for Italtrans in Moto2;

In Moto3, Maverick Vinales is leaving for Aspar in Moto3.

Oh, and some kid called Kris McLaren is standing-in for the injured Hernandez at the Phillip Island MotoGP which sums it up really.

Only ordinary, stupid people would judge Vinales by his 'young' age - the guy's been racing since he was 3yrs old (14 years experience).

I hope this end's the spotty little cunt's carreer. Everyone should try their best with what they have!

Only a Welshman with a big wooden spoon

would be foolish enough to draw parallels between on track racing experience and life experience.

Being the father of a seventeen year old I can vouch for the fact they can barely tie their own shoelaces. Actually for a fact my one can't!
