Maverick Vinales Wins Silverstone MotoGP Race
Just when everyone thought Cal Crutchlow was able to seize victory once again. Vinales pulled an upset to grant Suzuki’s first win since 2007.
The Spaniard raced past the chequered flag just 3.480s quicker than home hero Crutchlow. Maverick Vinales became the fourth new winner for this year’s MotoGP and ended the brand’s nine-year drought of wins since Chris Vermeulen in the 2007 French Grand Prix.
Vinales currently stands at fourth place in the championship standings with a total of 125 points, trailing behind Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo.
