Moment of Motor Vinales Strikes Out of Gasoline at MotoGP Argentina

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —

Aprilia racer Maverick Vinales suffered the unfortunate fate of his motorbike breaking down due to running out of gas at the 2023 Argentina MotoGP at the Ternas de Rio Hondo Circuit, Friday (31/3).

The strike occurred during the first free practice (FP1) MotoGP Argentina 2023. In this free practice Vinales was at the forefront with a record time of 1 minute 39.2070 seconds.

The second position is occupied by his teammate Aleix Espargaro and followed by Jorge Martin in third place from the Pramac team.



Vinales’ slick achievements in FP1 MotoGP Argentina had to be ‘redeemed’ by pushing the RS-GP motorbike which broke down because it ran out of gas during the cool down lap.

Cool down lap itself is the term for an additional lap or the last lap after the racer has completed his task.

“Looks like Maverick ran out of fuel on the cool-down lap,” wrote MotoGP in a video upload on Twitter.

“That of course won’t bother him because Top Gun is at the top of the session (FP1),” wrote MotoGP added.

Currently Maverick Vinales is in second place in the 2023 MotoGP standings after finishing runner up in the opening series at the 2023 Portugal MotoGP.

Being the fastest in FP1 will be an important capital for Vinales ahead of qualifying and the 2023 Argentina MotoGP sprint race.

The Argentine MotoGP once gave Vinales sweet memories. In the 2017 season when he was with Yamaha, Maverick Vinales won the MotoGP Argentina. Last season, the 28-year-old racer finished seventh.
