Viñales and Yamaha split: how is the 2022 grid now looking?

After the shock announcement that Maverick Viñales and Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP will be parting ways at the end of the season, one year into a two-year contract, the 2022 silly season has really taken a step up. Valentino Rossi (Petronas Yamaha SRT) is still yet to confirm what he’s doing at the end of the season. If the nine-time World Champion announces his retirement, then there’s a seat to be filled at Petronas Yamaha SRT. With Viñales leaving, there is now a vacant factory Yamaha spot too. We also don’t know who Aleix Espargaro’s 2022 teammate will be in the factory Aprilia ranks. It shouldn’t be too long before we know who Espargaro’s Aprilia teammate is in 2022. – Petronas Yamaha SRT x1- Tech3 KTM Factory Racing x1- Factory Aprilia x1- Aramco Racing Team VR46 x2- Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP x1.
