(cafetheology.org) – The Yamaha factory will compete with Maverick Vinales at the Grand Prix of San Marino. Due to his leg injury Valentino Rossi has to leave out his home race. Rumors made the lap of the past few days that Yamaha could possibly nominate one of the two Tech-3 drivers as a substitute. "No one asked me," says Jonas Folger on this topic. And team colleague Johann Zarco also appeased, "I left that to my manager, you spoke to Herve." Tech-3 team leader Herve Poncharal does not have to borrow a driver from Misano. Folger believes that there was more noise than smoke behind the subject: "I did not take that seriously, of course I would have been happy if that was the case, then I asked Herve and my manager if there was any chance "Zarco," he said, "is the best way to get the best out of the world," Zarco said become. "No, as far as I know not," says the German. "For Aragon, Rossi wants to be fit again, if it does, if not, then they will use a Japanese." A candidate would be Testfahrer Katsuyuki Nakasuga. Rossi takes a comeback for Aragon (September 24). If this race is too early, he will be looking for Motegi (October 15). The last year showed that a workman does not automatically pick up a driver from a customer team for an injured driver. When Dani Pedrosa was injured, Cal Crutchlow was not taken to Repsol to not weaken LCR. The example Ducati showed that it can also be negative when you get someone from a customer team. Hector Barbera took part in two races Andrea Iannone last autumn. The Spaniard was hardly able to cope with the new Ducati version.Therefore, Zarco finds it good that the Tech-3 rookies in peace in their usual environment continue working: "I am happy that I have my bike for the rest of the year This is the best solution to work, I know what I have to do. " Since Rossi is missing, Zarco and Folger have an opponent less on the track. The Frenchman is already thinking of a top result: "Valentino was one of the favorites for the podium, and since he is not there, I have a better chance of the top 5 or the podium.
