A day in the lockdown life of Viñales

The Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP rider took over MotoGP™’s official Instagram account to document his day

Lockdown life is affecting most of us across the globe at the moment and it’s no different for Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’s Maverick Viñales. On Thursday the 23rd of April, the Spaniard took centre stage on MotoGP™’s official Instagram account as fans were treated to a day with the 25-year-old.

His day started with a bit of chill time outside on his Andorra balcony with his dog Minnie, before having breakfast. Following that, a bit of work for his company and training was on the agenda, before heading off for a CAT scan to see if everything is fixed from an injury. Then, it was time for lunch – steak and rice was Thursday’s chosen dish before Viñales answered some fans questions.

The 23-time Grand Prix winner revealed his cheat meal was pizza, while a skill he’s learned during lockdown is how to be organised. And talking of organised, Viñales then took us for a quick tour of his home museum. Leathers from when he was a kid to his current Yamaha uniform, all his helmets, some if his rivals' helmets, trophies and more – can you guess which trophy was one of his favourites? Viñales ended the MotoGP™ Instagram takeover by showing us what he had for tea – potatoes and peas, a typical Catalan dish – while watching some Netflix.
