"Stability at home helps me forget 2020"says Viñales

Maverick Viñales explained this Thursday in Qatar that having achieved family stability at home, and also having it in the team, has allowed him to forget the fateful year 2020, with the accident in Austria included.

The pilot of Yamaha he won the first race of the 2021 season, like four years ago, just as long as he had not led the MotoGP World Championship.

Despite the good start and the impeccable race starred last Sunday, to Maverick Viñales there are always things to improve, logically.

“Never a weekend is perfect, it is very difficult to get there. We have to improve, do something different, not all weekends are the same, we already saw it in the doublets last year. We have good potential and we are going to try to improve it ”, explained this Thursday the Spaniard at the press conference prior to the GP de Doha, second of the course and on the same circuit as the first, Losail.

“I believe that all the rivals can go one step further, we will try, it is important to improve day by day, the top 10 drivers on Sunday can be faster. The demand for the tires is very high and we must work on this issue ”, he added.

Last year the season was a technical ordeal for the M1 2020, something that seems forgotten after the race on Sunday.

“It is too early to draw conclusions, we must go to more circuits to see if the bike has the consistency. It is important that it worked well in the first place, but we have strengths and weaknesses and we have to work on them, but it is still too early to know if the bike is better than last year ”.

Like the whole MotoGP family, Viñales it stopit in Doha between the two races, with time to think, but without enjoying his performance.

“I’ve only seen the race once, I didn’t want to see it too much, it doesn’t make sense, it’s all new this weekend and you don’t have to get stuck in the past.”

“I’ve been in this situation quite a few times and it motivates me. Things will change, but not speed, which is the most important thing ”, he added, referring to the fact that he is leading the World Cup.

They insisted on Mack and to Yamaha it continued to present uncertainty to its pilots.

“I have no doubts about the Yamaha, but we want to keep calm, we don’t want to get excited too soon, on some circuits we will have to push more than normal because it will be difficult for the bike. I have full confidence in the M1, but we are not going to toss the bells at flight. We are focused on the second race ”.

The weak point in which the most insisted #12 last weekend it was at the start.

“The start was good, but the rivals came out faster. We will try to improve, but the output device on the front axle (which mounts Ducati) It is clear that it makes a difference, Yamaha is working to have it as soon as possible, it annoys me because when you go out in front you can control the tires better, behind you have to push a lot to come back and we have an obligation to improve in this area ”.

With so many tests, training and races in Qatar, it is difficult to know if the bike will work just as well in other circumstances.

“It is very difficult to understand if the bike is going to work well on other circuits, here the grip is very good, I have very good feelings with the front end and that is important for the next races. We know our potential and we are going to try to translate it into the circuits where we did not go well last year ”.

Family stability

Finally, they raised the World Cup leader with the fact that he looked much more relaxed than last year, when there was a string of complaints about the problems, and if this had been influenced by the fact that he got married and that going to be a father. As well as not having now to Valentino Rossi in the box.

“Basically in general terms my life has more stability and that is very important. A part of my life is already going very well, I have the best person in the world by my side and that allows me to be calm. Last year was tough for many reasons, because of the Austrian race (with a serious accident), which makes you think a lot. After all that, my dream of being a champion is still intact now, but with the stability that I now have both at home and in the team, it is easier to achieve it. We are going to try to keep the focus every weekend and fight for the title, “he said, before they insisted on him. Rossi.

“It doesn’t change too much, it’s only one box away. Valentino It is a very important part of Yamaha and it will continue to be, not much has changed in that sense ”, the Spaniard closed.
