Impressive from the second he got on his new Movistar Yamaha MotoGP machine, Maverick Viñales has been topping timesheets since, and Day 1 at the Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina was no different, with the Qatar GP winner off to a flier in P1.
The 2013 Moto3™ World Champion did a best of 1:39.477, almost a perfect three tenths clear of reigning Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team).
Viñales: "We have a lot of work to do tomorrow"
Maverick Viñales, P1: “I feel very positive. I feel great on the bike and physically I‘m really fit. The bike is working good, we are using the basic set-up, and from the first lap I felt really comfortable on the track. Step by step we are improving and we still have some work to do for the race, but I think we have the speed, so that‘s really important. I don‘t know if the hard rear will be an option for the race. It‘s difficult to tell, because we had some wheel spin, so I don‘t know. We are trying many things, but what is sure is that we have good speed. We still have to decide on a race tyre. Tomorrow we have a lot of work to do, so let‘s start and see what the lap times are like.”
