Viñales has "potential to fight for victory at every race"

Point proven for the Movistar Yamaha rider despite crash in Austin

Even though he crashed out of contention in Texas, Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) is still on a 66% win record in 2017 – and feels his impressive pace in Texas proves he can fight for the win at every track.

After a victory at Jerez in Moto3™, a sixth last year and two wins to begin 2017, the Spaniard is extra-motivated to bounce back quickly in Andalusia - and at his first home race of the year.

Maverick Viñales: “After the disappointing result in Austin I‘m happy that I didn‘t sustain any injuries. We also proved that we have the potential to fight for the victory at every race and this motivates me to arrive to Jerez even stronger than I was at the last GP. Jerez is a good track for Yamaha, they‘ve always been very fast there, so I know that I can be as strong and fast in Jerez as I was in Austin and as I have been at all the tracks during the start of this season. We just should be focused, find a good set-up for the bike and push until the end of the race. I‘m extra motivated for the next round.”
