Viñales: "Silverstone has always been a good track for me"

#25gang ready for a battle in Britain

Maverick Viñales (Team Suzuki Ecstar) has one very special memory from Silverstone, as the track played host to his very first pole position in the world championship. Now counting on a much improved Suzuki machine and having proven his capabilities throughout 2016 - including his first podium finish - Viñales is hopeful that, although the English circuit is a fast one, a lot of the other characteristics of the venue will definitely suit his machinery.

Maverick Viñales: “My expectations for Silverstone are positive, it has always been a good track for me and here I also did my first pole position. I’ve always liked it a lot and I think for the Suzuki it can be a good track also. We have to work a lot, we did important improvements in latest races increasing our knowledge of the bike and finding some solutions in the set-up and electronics that can help me in tricky weather conditions. The first and last sectors are really nice, and there are some corners that will suit our machine’s characteristics. The weather will play a role, as always in England it is unpredictable, but the progress we’ve made makes me think that we can do a good race in any conditions.”
