VINALES SEALS FIRST MOTOGP WIN AT RED-FLAGGED SILVERSTONE


Maverick Vinales became MotoGP's latest new winner and recorded Suzuki's first victory since 2007‭ ‬with a commanding British Grand Prix performance at Silverstone‭.‬

 

Vinales led home local hero Cal Crutchlow by 3.480‭ ‬seconds to become the fourth new winner in five grands prix and end a Suzuki‭ ‬drought that goes back to Chris Vermeulen's victory in the 2007‭ ‬French GP at a wet Le Mans‭.‬

 

The race was red-flagged on the first lap‭, ‬due to an accident involving Pol Espargaro and Loris Baz at Maggotts‭.‬

 

With their bikes‭, ‬the pair bounced across the infield and were fortunate not to be hit when they re-entered the track surface‭.‬

 

Both were reported as being conscious‭, ‬and taken to the medical centre for further checks‭.‬

 

Vinales took the lead into Maggotts on that first start‭, ‬and after the restart for the shortened 19-lap race he had to wait until Abbey on the opening lap to get past polesitter Crutchlow‭.‬
