Viñales: “I need to improve my tyre management”

Viñales: “I need to improve my tyre management”

Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Maverick Viñales identifies the key areas where he needs to improve ahead of the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM.

Viñales crossed the line at Le Mans in ninth, and currently sits tenth in the MotoGP™ World Championship standings with 27 points.

Maverick Viñales:
“My feeling is that Mugello will be a difficult track because it has such a long straight, and this could be a bad thing for our Suzuki, but at the same time there are some very fast corners where we can exploit the very good chassis that we have. Making a balance of pros and cons I think that we can make a good performance, maybe better that Le Mans. The important point for us will be to exploit the free practice and qualifying at their best. Being able to start from a better position will allow me to make my own pace and have riders that push me from behind instead of having to fight and pass them like I did in recent races. I still need to work to improve my tyre management and time my runs better during practices. I believe improvements in these areas will lead me to a better qualifying position.”
