GP des Amériques: Vinales, quel week-end !

GP of the Americas: Vinales, what a weekend!

Winner of the Grand Prix of the Americas, Maverick Vinales had a magical weekend. With his 10th victory, the Spaniard made MotoGP history. His runner-up Pedro Acosta, for his part, never stops cutting corners.

Maverick Vinales had what could hardly be called anything other than a perfect weekend. Holder of pole position at the end of qualifying this Saturday, the Spaniard subsequently dominated the sprint race of the Grand Prix of the Americas. A real fairy tale. But this Sunday during the Grand Prix, his race almost turned into a nightmare when he fell back to 10th place after the first corner where he avoided a crash. But without panicking, he gradually climbed back up the slope. And at the end of the road he found incredible treasures.

First of all, enjoying a bit of success, he saw Marc Marquez fall in a corner on the 11th lap while he had taken the lead. Having passed runner-up, Maverick Vinales then quickly overtook Pedro Acosta, pushing him further and further behind until the finish. And what a relief! Maverick Vinales wins his first Grand Prix since that of Qatar in 2021, i.e. 1113 days. His tenth victory in MotoGP. A competition in which he made history this Sunday, achieving what no one has managed until now.

An incredible record for Vinales, Acosta burns the stages

The Spaniard becomes the first driver able to win with three different teams! It’s too much emotion for the Aprilia rider (also winner with Suzuki and Yamaha) who cried with joy. However, although he did not win, Pedro Acosta is just as happy. On the occasion of the third Grand Prix of his career, he came close to winning and took second place after having already finished 3rd in Portugal. Still not yet 20 years old, this season he could beat the record for precociousness of a Grand Prix winner held by Marc Marquez. And on the third step of the podium, we find the Italian Enea Bastianini whose consistency has once again paid off.

World championship leader Jorge Martin finished 4th, one position ahead of double reigning world champion Francesco Bagnaia. Fabio Quartararo, for his part, finished 12th and collected four points while Johann Zarco, as in the sprint race the day before, fell and abandoned. The French will try to do better in two weeks during the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez.
