Even though he crashed out of contention in Texas, Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) is still on a 66% win record in 2017 – and feels his impressive pace in Texas proves he can fight for the win at every track.
After a victory at Jerez in Moto3™, a sixth last year and two wins to begin 2017, the Spaniard is extra-motivated to bounce back quickly in Andalusia - and at his first home race of the year.
Maverick Viñales: “After the disappointing result in Austin I‘m happy that I didn‘t sustain any injuries. We also proved that we have the potential to fight for the victory at every race and this motivates me to arrive to Jerez even stronger than I was at the last GP. Jerez is a good track for Yamaha, they‘ve always been very fast there, so I know that I can be as strong and fast in Jerez as I was in Austin and as I have been at all the tracks during the start of this season. We just should be focused, find a good set-up for the bike and push until the end of the race. I‘m extra motivated for the next round.”
