Maverck Viñales He is once again the great favorite to victory in the Doha GP, second in a row at the Losail circuit, but again he will have to fight hard with the Ducati that have him surrounded and this time he does not have Quartararo by his side but behind.

THE SUMMARY

“Today the first row was difficult, I did not have good feelings in the first attack time and in the second I was already well and we got a good lap and I saw that I was third. They have been incredible and we have nothing to reproach, our pace is very good and Fabio and Mir, in general the start will be very important and we will try not to lose positions and push the first laps “

IF IT’S AS STRONG AS SUNDAY

“We will see. The air can play tricks, but the truth is that I feel very strong and today the pace felt very, very good in FP4, trying to control the tires a lot. I still have to improve so tonight I will try to turn my head to see how I can improve and take a little step forward, because both Johann and Fabio are very close and I have also seen Mir quite strong, so we have to recover ground quickly “

THE RACE STRATEGY

“I have no idea, we’ll see. There is honestly no plan. Our strategy is to go out and shoot, put a quick pace. That’s what I have in mind, go out and put a fast pace. Both Johann and Fabio are strong, Mir is also quite strong. I think there are several riders who can be there “

“I think the sensations are very good and I will try to push from the beginning and then at the end of the race we will see how things go. A fast race will be important to us. “

WHERE THERE IS MARGIN FOR IMPROVEMENT

“In everything, in how I open the throttle, in some lines, so we’ll see, there are ways to improve.”

THE POLE OF JORGE MARTÍN

“I am very happy for him, I am very happy because sometimes we train together and the truth is that Jorge has incredible talent. He already showed it in the first race, as soon as he came out with what he did and there was no doubt that Jorge would go fast. I am very happy for him and also for his family “

LOST SEVEN POSITIONS AT THE START

“I am trying my hardest, but it seems quite complicated, we are working hard, we are missing the starting device on the front end but they are working to bring it as soon as possible. The start is almost the entire race and in Qatar you can overtake in many points, but there will be races that will cost us to overtake and we have to improve at the starts. I work a lot and I have taken steps forward, but in the last race I lost a lot and we will try to improve the second part of the start ”
