Yamaha rider Maverick Vinales said he feels up to producing another “incredible race” in Argentina this weekend following his victory in the MotoGP season opener in his last outing at Qatar.
On March 26 at Qatar's Losail Circuit, in his first race for the Yamaha Team, the 22-year-old Vinales claimed the victory ahead of Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso and Yamaha teammate Valentino Rossi in third.
Vinales heads to the Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit in Argentina having never ridden his Yamaha YZR-M1 on the track but is full of confidence and expects a similar result to the one at Qatar.
"We start let's say from zero. We know the track but I never rode [here] with the Yamaha, but anyway I now that the bike here is good. The track is quite good for my riding style and I am confident that we can be strong," Vinales said.
"We have to try and not make any mistakes, try and be at the front and do our best. Hopefully, it will be a normal weekend and we want to work and arrive for the race at 100 percent.
"We've been in many tracks and I feel strong at each track, so I hope that here I can feel it again and give our best. I think we have the chance to do an incredible race and we are going to try it."
