There MotoGP comes to an end and behind the scenes the pawns begin to move in view of 2021, the year in which the queen class could see several pilots change jacket. Valentino Rossi at Yamaha is the driver who can decide the fate of several colleagues. The Doctor will face 2020 with a new head technician and if he finds the lost competitiveness he could decide to continue his adventure in MotoGP, a hypothesis that would bring Yamaha with all the odds to sacrifice Maverick Vinales to allow Fabio Quartararo to land in the official team in 2021 after having had an official M1 available as early as 2020, a season in which Yamaha will line up four factory bikes like the Ducati.

Maverick Vinales at Sepang he dominated the race, in 2019 he won two races and is about to end the season as the best Yamaha rider and the only one to have taken the M1 to the top step of the podium. With these results, the 1995 class manager, Paco Sanchez, is not afraid for the future of his client: "His future can be Ducati, it can be Honda, he can easily return to Suzuki, it could be Yamaha, if Iwata is shown to have criteria. If this is not the case, it will be a problem for them, not for us. Vinales has never thought of leaving Yamaha. It is Yamaha that makes us think of looking at other drivers ", the words of Sanchez reported by the Spanish newspaper As. In the light of track performance, Vinales would like to become the technical guide of Yamaha, from which he expects even greater economic recognition than what has been paid so far, this is the 'criterion' of which Sanchez speaks.

The Spanish manager is ready to face the long winter of market carrying out their work in the best possible way, or putting on the desk of Vinales the greatest number of possible contracts, then it will be up to the 2013 Moto3 world champion to choose which one to autograph: “There are conversations, there are no negotiations yet. This year the market is a bit slower than in other years. My job is to find the best options for him, put them all on the table and I hope that one of those possibilities is Yamaha. Then Maverick will choose the one he likes best ".
