Viñales: “I feel much more confident”

Viñales: “I feel much more confident”

Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Maverick Viñales discusses the improvements he feels they have made to the GSX-RR during the Jerez test.

Viñales completed 79 laps around the 4.4 km Circuito de Jerez as he worked on developing the electronics package on his Suzuki.

Maverick Viñales:
“We ran a lot of laps today with the objective of testing as much as we could. To me the new swingarm resulted to have positives and negatives so it gave us a lot of ideas as to what else we can try. We had available some new electronics and we managed to be consistent on a pace that was much faster than yesterday in the race. The very good thing gleaned from the day is that we tested some new ideas in geometry and they gave us very positive improvements in braking: I feel much more confident in getting more into the corner with brakes than before. This is much more important for tracks like Le Mans with very slow corners, which is the next race.”
