Viñales: "I felt great on the bike again"

Positive first day at Silverstone for last year's winner

2016 winner Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) got off to a good start at Silverstone this season, going third fastest on Day 1 and not far off the top - with some serious optimism about his prospects on race day.

Viñales: "Our race pace is quite competitive"

After some more difficult rounds, the rider from Roses will want to take the maximum points haul he can this weekend - looking to hit back against the gains made by both Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) in Austria.

Maverick Viñales, P3: "I feel good. Honestly, with the race pace we were quite competitive and I felt great on the bike again. I was riding in my own style and it was really nice to be as competitive again as we were at the start of the season. In the time attack I didn‘t feel as good, especially with the front. It was the first time I tried the hard tyre, so I was not trusting the bike enough. Anyway, I‘m there, so I‘m happy and quite confident that we can do a really good job tomorrow.."
