Viñales struggling with left side of the tyre

But fourth on the grid for the #SpanishGP

Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) heads up the second row for the #SpanishGP after an uncharacteristically quiet qualifying for his first home GP of the year, but the 2013 Moto3™ World Champion is happy with Saturday overall – despite some issues with the left hand side of the tyre.

With some things to look at overnight and in Warm Up on Sunday morning, the number 25 is also still to choose tyres – something that could prove decisive in the race.

Maverick Viñales, P4: “I think today was good. We worked quite hard and tried to find a good set-up. Honestly, the right side of the tyre is really good, but when I go onto the left side I suddenly have a lot of wheelspin. We have to check it out this night and work really hard for tomorrow‘s warm-up. We still have to decide on the tyre options. We did many laps on the medium tyre and the lap times weren‘t so bad, so we have to continue like that. Like we did today, we have to work a little bit more than we usually do during the warm-up, so I think tomorrow it‘s important to find a good set-up, especially for the left side.”
