(cafetheology.org) – Maverick Vinales did not play a role in the racetrack in Misano. The only Yamaha factory driver came 16 seconds behind winner Marc Marquez (Honda). Vinales was able to keep the catching up Michele Pirro (Ducati) in the final stages and to score four important 13 World Championship points. Thus the Spaniard is still in the title fight. "It's a good thing," Vinales said. He thinks back to the previous problems in the rain. "Marc and Dovi have fought before us, but when we think about the Sachsenring, where I only finished eleventh in the qualifying, we have improved well, and I've been doing good and steady laps, especially in the middle of the season "" The handling of the bike was very good, I was very pleased with the behavior of the front tire, it is similar to the dry, where we have already improved significantly, but behind was it was very difficult to find traction, especially in link curves, the angle was not easy, but I was left on the ground four or five times, but it was difficult, but I am satisfied with the result the world championship leader. "Vinales praises the new 2018 chassis with which he wants to drive until the end of the season. Both motorbikes were built up, because Teamkollege Valentino Rossi was missing due to injury. In Silverstone, every Yamaha driver had only one new variant available. "Traction remains the problem," Vinales mentions the remaining weakness. "We have to work on the electronics, and I'm very satisfied with the front line, so if you do not have traction, you'll lose a lot of time – especially in the wet." In Misano, Vinales was very competitive in the dry. In the wet, Yamaha has also made progress. Five races still remain. What course will be the M1? "There are routes on which we have already tested in the winter", Vinales looks ahead. "This is why we have a lot of data and I know it with the Yamaha, which should make Friday easier with regard to tuning and electronics, Malaysia and Australia are very good tracks for the Yamaha, where we could have chances wait."
