Movistar #Yamaha #MotoGP riders #maverickvinales and #valentinorossi kicked off the Grand Prix of The Americas showing good form. Making the most of the perfect riding conditions in today’s two free practice sessions, the teammates both aimed for a top-10 finish, in case of rain tomorrow, and fulfilled their goal securing third and fourth place respectively in the combined free practice times.

Viñales used FP1 to reproduce his strong form at COTA from last year. Though the forceful thrust of the #MotoGP bikes made the dust fly everywhere in the first free practice session, the 23-year-old was quick to show a competitive pace. He worked diligently on his bike’s settings throughout the morning and put his head down in the final stages. He earned third place in the FP1 results, with a 2’06.257s best time and a 0.727s margin to the top.
