In Qatar Maverick Vinales made it four out of four, and has concluded all of the winter tests in first place: from Valencia to Losail, via Sepang and Phillip Island. Different track, different conditions, the only constant being the Spanish Top Gun on board his Yamaha.
There's little more to say, right now he is the man to beat, both in terms of the flying lap and the race setting, because Maverick put in an impressive race simulation.
“I'm really pleased, we've taken another step forward with the bike and I feel comfortable. I'm also quite pleased with my pace”, he comments.
But don't think that Vinales is settling, on the contrary he is convinced that he can, and must do more.
“I feel we can improve the electronics, we have room to improve and find another couple of tenths - he confirms- We're definitely not at the limit of what the bike can do yet, I can push a little more. If I do in the race as I've done in testing, I can fight for the win”.
There are few doubts about this.
