Viñales happy with sur­prise podium

Motorcycle News (UK) - - MCN THIS WEEK -

While Rossi was pleased with his dam­age-lim­it­ing fourth place, team-mate Mav­er­ick Viñales was pos­i­tively de­lighted, af­ter he put a tough week­end be­hind him by tak­ing a sur­prise podium finish in third.

Strug­gling through­out the week­end to get the best out of the Yamaha M1 as he con­tin­ues to adapt to the new chas­sis first tried by the firm be­fore the sum­mer break, he said: “Hon­estly, third was the best we could do. Our target was to be on the podium and we did it, but we were strug­gling all week­end. Fin­ish­ing third on a tough week­end is a good re­sult, but we have to be on the podium - this has to be the norm if we want to win the cham­pi­onship.”
