Viñales: “Pace is hard to compare”

Pole position for the Spaniard, but work to do on Sunday morning

Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) took pole position for the Aragon GP as the man with the best record at the track – Repsol Hodna Team’s Marc Marquez – crash out, but the rider from Roses remains ready to do some more work in Warm Up to decide on tyres, saying it’s hard to compare race pace with the rivals around him.

Third in the Championship, Viñales will be gunning for the win – right from the front.

Viñales: "We can be very fast tomorrow"

Maverick Viñales, P1: “It’s always important to be on the front row, because it seems half the race you can push from the beginning so it makes sense to control the race and the tyres. The team did a great job, we changed to a new setup and I’m really confident and feel I can push. Pace is hard to compare so let’s see tomorrow but I’m pleased to be on pole. In the dry we have a really competitive bike but in the wet we have to improve. Here nobody knows about the tyre, we have to work hard in Warm Up to understand what to use in the race. It’s important tomorrow to make a good start, try and pull away from the beginning, take the chance and give our maximum.”
