He likely is aiming to breach the contract before the end of the season so he can find a ride after. If he finishes the season riding for them he won't have a chance to break the contract until the next season starts. It just depends on the consequences of breaking the contract mid season. They must have promised something big for this weekend and failed. That or it's drugs.

Vinales personal manager is also Avintia's team manager, and it seems that their was a conflict of interest as he 'forgot' to tell his client that he had also offers from Ajo and Aspar before renewing for another two years

My comment only stated facts, so how could this be disagreed with? Another ignorant brat no doubt. His now former manager just gave his take on things & it's pretty clear to me that they've provided him with a winning machine. He's just upset he's not getting the Spanish press attention like Dani & Marquez. Boo hoo hoo.

it amazes me how in the box some people think. Hes not a brat, hes taking a big chance doing what hes doing, hes not gonna sit around and waste his time next year when theres much faster bikes on the grid, there is no future right now in a non-ktm powered moto3 bike, thats not likely to change, Honda have proven they cannot build a better motor, so Mav is taking it somewhere else in order to do whats best for him, Mav has done great things with that bike, hes also been pretty lucky to have as many wins as he does, he doesnt have Repsol making sure hes got the fastest bike, so hes making his own future, go getem Mav, be smart, make sure you know how to work the system and dont run people over like the real spoiled brats in MotoGP.

@ Grendlehop

People can disagree with your post because you called him a spoilt brat. That's not a fact its an opinion.
And one I also happen to disagree with.

It's also very childish to start name calling. You don't even know they guy so let him be.
See how you would like to risk your nek with inferior equipment week in week out.
Then on top of that think how je feels knowing he got done over by his manager on his contract. Some one who is intimately involved with the team.

You would have walked out as well. All the best to the lad.
Riders get screwed left right and centre all the time though its their ass on the line.
He should sue his former manager.

I'm sorry but the bike was clearly capable of 5 wins, multiple podiums, and 2nd place in the world championship. I knew this kid was overrated last year. It is laughable that people would even consider comparing this kid to Marquez. I don't see Rossi quitting Ducati and he doesn't even have a contract signed with ducati. This brat is too big for his britches and if he doesn't win the title next season this will be a perfect example of career suicide. Nothing worse than a quitter. Think about all the non Spanish kids who would kill for that Blusens ride on a team that is built around one rider. Oh well he'll be a nico terol when he gets to moto2. Go Folger!!
