Maverick ViÌ±ales heads into the Spanish round focused and confident.
‰ÛÏAfter the long travelling with the opening races it is good to get back to Europe and especially to be in Spain," ViÌ±ales said.
"I‰Ûªm very positive and confident, we are working hard and the results are very close to coming; in Argentina I missed the podium because of a single, little mistake and in Austin we were pretty competitive for the whole weekend, although the final result in the race showed that our distance from the winner is still too great.
"We stayed in Austin for the test and we made steps forward in many directions; we now have different options for the chassis and set-ups, which we know are better, and also with the electronics we are getting more-and-more confident. The Jerez circuit will be good for our machines, last year Aleix performed really well here, so I hope we will make some further steps.‰Û
