MotoGP San Marino: Vinales: 'We have a good chance'

"For tomorrow I think we have a good chance. We will try the best and take the best we can from the Suzuki" – Maverick Vinales.
Maverick Vinales continued the momentum from his debut MotoGP victory at Silverstone with a front row start at Misano.

Vinales wrote his name into Suzuki history at the British GP, claiming the factory's first MotoGP win since 2007 and first in the dry since 2000.

The 21-year-old Spaniard led every lap en route to his debut premier-class victory and now has six races left on the GSX-RR before switching to the factory Yamaha team.

After a strong weekend in Italy, would rule out a third podium of the season on sunday.

"Really happy to be on the first row and it's also really important for tomorrow," said Vinales, who was 0.513s from pole sitter Jorge Lorenzo and 0.165s from future Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi.

"This track is difficult to overtake and it's important to be there from the first lap. I was feeling really good on the pace. Also in my best lap time maybe I could do a little bit better.

"But I am so happy because the bike is working good. Today was really high temperature and we were competitive. It means that we improved a lot in these conditions.

"Since Brno we did a good step on the hot conditions and today you have the result. In FP4 we were riding with really old tyres and I was feeling really constant and really good. In the qualifying also.

"So for tomorrow I think we have a good chance. We will try the best and take the best we can from the Suzuki."
