Vinales splits with MotoGP crew chief ahead of Catalan race weekend

Monster Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales has split with crew chief Esteban Garcia on the eve of the Catalan Grand Prix.

Garcia joined the squad in 2019 at Vinales’ behest but the results have not been forthcoming in 2021 so, as usual, the crew chief gets it.

He will be replaced by veteran ex-Valentino Rossi man Silvano Galbusera, who is drafted in from the test team.


“Esteban joined our team in 2019. He and Maverick had already worked together before in 2013 and won the Moto3 World Championship that year,” said team boss Maio Meregalli.

“We are very grateful to Esteban for his dedication and passion during our time spent together, which led to eleven podiums for Maverick, including four wins, three second places, and four third places.

“Saying ‘Goodbye’ to one of our crew members is always a sad occasion, but it was a mutual decision based on what’s best for both parties. We wish Esteban all the best for the future.”
