Vinales will make his debut for Aprilia at Aragon GP. He will race instead of Lorenzo Savadori who is still recovering from injuries. Vinales is also confirmed for the reminder of the season and Savadori will do few wildcard races in this season once he's fully recovered. Savadori has been confirmed as official test rider for 2022. as well.

Is this a puzzle ?

Seems like it. This season really is crazy with those rider changes. Quite a bit of injuries, Vinales leaving the team... it is almost like they consider this season to be part 2 of 2020. where no one is taking it seriously and are just preparing for 2022. that will hopefully be less influenced by stuff out of their control

On the topic of ride height devices: Simon Crafar has explained them nicely in his latest Tech Talk



Apparently Ducati has even more advanced rear height device where they can arm it before they even turn into the corner and depending on how it was set up it will just drop the rear down on the corner exit (Crafar gave an example of when front forks fully extend on acceleration which means most of the weight is on the rear). The system has to be completely passive though, by rules there can be no electronic control over that.

During FP1 they talked that Aprilia is using a development version of that on Aleix's bike as well.

And in addition I made a screenshot when Bastianini lost his bodywork in Austria where you can clearly see the device.
