Manufacturer Honda is upgrading and is building four new models in 2021. Yamaha, on the other hand, is lagging behind, because Franco Morbidelli will not get the latest machine in 2021 either. Maverick Viñales believes this is a disadvantage.
Since last weekend it has been clear: Honda will send four of the latest models in the battle for championship points in the MotoGP class in the coming season. KTM and Ducati also have four factory motorcycles in use. Manufacturer Yamaha is missing in this series. Franco Morbidelli is currently driving a 2019 machine and will also be using a so-called Start the «A-spec» Yamaha. Compared to the other three machines, it then corresponds to a previous year’s Yamaha, but also has various updates.
Maverick Viñales says: “I would prefer it if we all drove the same model. Then we would all have the same opportunities and would be able to better understand why one or the other motorcycle works better. It can be a disadvantage that we will only have three factory motorcycles in 2021. If we had four bikes, we could probably improve faster. “
From 2021 the Spaniard will have a new team-mate by his side, as Valentino Rossi and Fabio Quartararo will swap teams. The French shooting star doesn’t share Viñales’ opinion: “I don’t know what the situation is at Yamaha, but I don’t think it’s a disadvantage for us. It would of course be great if we had four factory bikes. Finding an answer is difficult. Franco got some strong results with the old model. “
The Italian recently won the Teruel GP and in the world championship he now has good prospects again in the fight for the crown. Viñales adds: “It’s not easy to understand why he is sometimes so better on tracks and then falls behind on others. That’s why it would be better if we had four of the same machines. “
But that will not be the case in 2021. At Honda, however, newcomer Pol Espargaró, the two Márquez brothers Marc and Alex, and Takaaki Nakagami will receive the latest motorcycle. The Japanese had only renewed his contract in Aragón and says: «For the next season I can say that I will ride the newest motorcycle. I can’t wait for the next season. I believe that with this team we can manage to fight with the works team on an equal footing. “
