Viñales dominates the sprint in the USA


Maverick Viñales confirmed the outstanding form he had demonstrated from the qualifiers, taking his first pole position of the season with the RS-GP24. The Spanish rider led the sprint from the first to final lap, with confidence and demonstrating an excellent race pace. Viñales finished with an advantage of more than two seconds to celebrate his second win of the season after the one in Portimão.

Aleix Espargaró, starting from the seventh spot on the grid, battled with the group in the opening laps of the race. After several bold overtakes, he finished fifth. 

"It’s incredible when everything works so well, I am really happy. I feel like this is one of the best moments of my career, especially in terms of my riding abilities. Physically, I feel strong, and that is fundamental on this track. I’d also like to thank the team. They are focused and motivated. We were hungry for this win."

"I find myself in difficulty, especially in the stop-and-go braking sections, but I am still satisfied with my performance and the result, especially considering that this is one of the worst circuits for me. I am extremely happy for Aprilia and for Maverick. This win demonstrates that the bike is improving greatly."
