MotoGP, Maverick Vinales, no brakes: launches himself from his Yamaha at 220 Km/h


Big scare at the Red Bull Ring at 12 laps from the end of the race. Maverick Vinales ended up without brakes when breaking away at the first corner, a point where they reach 310 km/hour. What saved the Spanish rider were his reflexes. When he realized that impacting with the wall would be inevitable, he jumped off his M1 at almost 220 km/h.

Vinales got up without a scratch as his Yamaha crashed into the air fence and caught fire.
