Is this the reason why Yamaha suspended Viñales in Austria?

It’s been the news that’s had everyone talking on Thursday ahead of the Bitci Motorrad Grand Prix von Österreich. This newly-released footage shows Viñales revving his Yamaha M1 to the limiter as he enters pitlane on the final lap of the Styrian GP. After catching and passing some riders in the opening exchanges, Viñales was then handed a Long Lap Penalty for exceeding track limits. After the Long Lap Penalty had been served with 15 laps to go, Viñales wasn’t able to recover the positions he had gained prior to the penalty. In coming into pitlane on the last lap, Viñales didn’t cross the line to finish the race. We now await to see what happens next between Yamaha and Viñales in 2021.
