Maverick Vinales’ Turbulent Ride at the German MotoGP: From High Hopes to Harsh Realities



Maverick Vinales: 'I'm set to soar to great heights…'

'…Once the bike caught traction, I continued directly ahead' – Maverick Vinales.

Maverick Vinales narrowly escaped another major highside incident during Sunday's MotoGP race at Sachsenring, marking his second such scare of the weekend.

During Saturday's qualifying, he was ejected from his Aprilia after the back end lost traction and slid out at Turn 10. Then, in the grand prix, on the seventh lap, a moment of easing off the throttle caused him to skid off the track and plow through the gravel.

"Vinales mentioned, “During the Turn 8 maneuver, I applied the brakes and nearly experienced a highside, which led me to overshoot the turn and veer off the course. Upon reviewing the data, we found nothing unusual; it was just a case of the rear losing traction.”

"I thought, 'wow, I'm going to soar'. But then the bike caught on and I ended up going directly forward. It's unfortunate, but that's how racing goes sometimes, and we have to take lessons from it."

The event caused Vinales to drop significantly in ranking, from sixth place to 18th, before he managed to recover and finish 12th by the end of the race.

Asserting that his physical state following the qualifying highside didn't hinder him during Sunday's race, Vinales estimated that even without the mishap, he would have crossed the finish line 10 seconds after the victor, Francesco Bagnaia.

In essence, tied with Trackhouse Aprilia's Miguel Oliveira, who secured sixth position and was the top finisher among the riders not on Ducatis.

"Vinales, who topped the charts on the initial day in Germany, expressed concern, stating, 'For several races now, we haven't been performing up to the required standard. We seem to reach our peak on Friday, but surpassing that point becomes extremely challenging.'"

"It's important to grasp the reasons behind it. It seems as though on Friday, you're leading the pack, but by the end, you find yourself trailing by 10 seconds."

"It's fascinating to grasp. I also observed Miguel's race, and it appeared he had the opportunity to contend for the victory throughout the weekend. However, when you see his final placement, he ended up ten seconds behind."

Challenging to grasp and tough to fathom.

"Occasionally, the way a bike handles can vary significantly whether you're cycling in a group or going solo."

Vinales, securing a sixth-place finish in the Sprint, stood as the sole representative for the factory Aprilia team, following his colleague Aleix Espargaro's withdrawal on Friday morning, owing to the injuries he suffered at Assen.
