Viñales: “I was hoping for a better result in the race”

Viñales: “I was hoping for a better result in the race”

Team SUZUKI ECSTAR’s Maverick Viñales finished in 10th in Argentina as he continued to make good progress on the GSX-RR machine.

Viñales made it through to Q2 for the first time on Saturday, and fought hard during the race to finish in the top ten, despite suffering with tyre issues in the early stages.

Maverick Viñales:
“I was hoping for a better result in the race according to the progress I made this weekend, including my direct access to Q2. Unfortunately I had a bad feeling with the tyres in the early laps so I could not be as effective as I wanted, but then unexpectedly the feeling got better and better as the tyres got more worn, so at the end of the race I was lapping at nearly the same times as the race leaders. For sure we take comfort from this, because it means that we have a good machine. We need to improve in the qualifying session and also in the set-up for the race. But once again, being in the top 10 is a positive result we must be proud of.”
