MotoGP Misano #2: Vinales tight-lipped on changes that took him to victory

Monster Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales was tight-lipped on the changes made to his M1 from Saturday to Sunday that enabled him to take victory in the second Misano MotoGP.

The Spaniard said he would ‘try something very different’ to find some grip early in the race after scorching to pole and a new lap record but when asked reverted to the old chestnut of changing the bike’s balance.

“We changed a lot the balance of the bike and I felt straight away much better under braking. I could take out all the potential we have on the bike for braking and corner speed. So, I increased the front confidence and I felt very good,” said Vinales, speaking at the track.


“I was very happy about yesterday because we did an exceptional lap, and today I can keep very consistent on the rhythm and especially at the start of the race I pushed quite hard to break the group and this is what remains in my head and makes me very happy.

“Many people were doubting me a lot on Sunday. Most of the people think it’s my mentality, but my mentality is exactly the same as the other weekends. I have that winning mentality and honestly, I didn’t find the confidence in the bike to push from the beginning.”
