Viñales: "Fourth is the best we could do"

Title contender happy enough after taking fourth at Misano - and making progress all weekend

Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) was on pole for the Gran Premio Tribul Mastercard di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, but race day dawned with very different, torrential conditions. After dropping back slightly at the start, Viñales began to drop back into the clutches of Jack Miller (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) and Michele Pirro (Ducati Team) - but then regained his rhythm and was able to keep it on the road for P4. Not losing out much in the title fight, the rider from Roses is happy with the result and knows it was the best they could do at the #SanMarinoGP.

Maverick Viñales, P4: "I'm happy with the result, because it is the best we could do. Honestly, today we asked 100% of the bike. I tried to get the best result and today that was fourth. We have to continue to work in the same way, because today was a good improvement compared to the wet race at the Sachsenring, especially the handling of the bike. We still need a lot of grip on the traction, so we have to keep going. I'll have to push in Aragón and believe we can close the 16-point gap to our rivals. On the dry we were really fast, I'm happy we made another step here in Misano. I hope we can do the same in Aragón."
