Viñales: “We have the speed”

Yamaha rider can’t be stopped so far…

Impressive from the second he got on his new Movistar Yamaha MotoGP machine, Maverick Viñales has been topping timesheets since, and Day 1 at the Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina was no different, with the Qatar GP winner off to a flier in P1.

The 2013 Moto3™ World Champion did a best of 1:39.477, almost a perfect three tenths clear of reigning Champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team).

Viñales: "We have a lot of work to do tomorrow"

Maverick Viñales, P1: “I feel very positive. I feel great on the bike and physically I‘m really fit. The bike is working good, we are using the basic set-up, and from the first lap I felt really comfortable on the track. Step by step we are improving and we still have some work to do for the race, but I think we have the speed, so that‘s really important. I don‘t know if the hard rear will be an option for the race. It‘s difficult to tell, because we had some wheel spin, so I don‘t know. We are trying many things, but what is sure is that we have good speed. We still have to decide on a race tyre. Tomorrow we have a lot of work to do, so let‘s start and see what the lap times are like.”
