(cafetheology.org) – Valentino Rossi will be able to make his comeback after his leg injury at the earliest with the start of the Asian races in Japan in mid-October. A substitute for the next round in Aragon has already been found, with Maverick Vinales as a temporary team-mate with Michael van der Mark. The Netherlands, as he himself knows, is not a substitute. For the Superbike pilots the footsteps of the nine-time world champion are probably too big for his MotoGP debut. Vinales reveals why he is already looking forward to the doctor's return. On the edge of the Misano weekend, the 22-year-old title-winner said, "When Valentino comes back, it will be easier for us all, he knows the bike so well and know how to drive fast. " For Vinales the Italian weekend as a single fighter was a challenge. "For me, the weekend was a bit more difficult without him, because we could not compare any data, so if your team colleague is faster you can push more, you'll learn the limit of the bike better know ", explains the Spaniard. Nevertheless, the Spaniard succeeded. On dry Saturday, he secured his pole position in front of his worst World Cup opponents Andrea Dovizioso and Marc Marquez. In the wet race, he drove a solid fourth place in the finish. One advantage was Rossi's absence: Vinales was thus able to enjoy two 2018 chassis. In Silverstone, a new one was made available to each pilot. This time he was able to test his Yamaha in Misano more extensively and adjust the optimal set-up somewhat easier. Even Teammanager Lin Jarvis has regretted in an interview at the weekend that not both pilots can fight for the victory. He said that Rossi Vinales could not take any points in the title match with his starting date, the Briton said: "I can not see any advantage in this. It's always better to have two aces in the sleeve."
