Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP's Maverick Viñales is a man with a plan at this weekend‘s Gran Premio de Teruel. He mostly focused on perfecting his YZR-M1‘s set-up again in FP2, but also displayed strong one-lap speed at the end of the 45-minute session. He was one of only two riders to dip under the 1‘48s-mark and earned second place in the combined FP rankings.
Having found some new set-up solutions in this morning‘s FP1, Viñales put in a good amount of laps this afternoon to confirm the positive findings on a tyre combination that he feels might be a solid option for Sunday‘s race. He followed up his first three race set-up dedicated runs with a time attack on his second bike in the final five minutes of FP2 to earn himself a place inside the top 10 of the combined free practice standings.
Top Gun was eager to see the one-lap potential of the YZR-M1 in preparation for tomorrow‘s qualifying. He confirmed the Yamaha‘s serious one-lap speed, clocking a 1‘47.957s on his 18th and final lap, to take second place, 0.175s from first.
