After yesterday, when we reported the news that Viñales appeared to be on the verge of joining the Laglisse Moto3 team for the 2013 season, then the news that came out that he has in fact joined the Spanish outfit for next season.
Although no final official word has been given it looks a done deal, with Marc VDS accepting defeat in their efforts to sign him, and Viñales today riding the 2013 Laglisse “factory KTM” for the first time.
Judging by team boss Pablo Nieto’s tweet he was successful today too… “We finish first day of test !!! Amazing @maverickmack25 good job!!! Half second faster of the record ! :)” not too shabby.
Without official confirmation yet, we cant confirm that Viñales has had his BQR contract bought out, but today’s indication along with the rumours from Catalunya would suggest this is a done deal.
