Maverick Vinales

Maverick Vinales has completed a perfect pre-season with Movistar Yamaha by leading every test session since joining the team at the end of last year. 

The young Spaniard confirmed the accolade by retaining the top spot on the final night in Qatar, pinching top spot from Jorge Lorenzo – the very rider he replaced at Yamaha after Lorenzo moved on to Ducati. 

However, the pair were kept in close company by Andrea Dovizioso getting within 0.071s, Dani Pedrosa 0.139s and Lorenzo 0.189s of Vinales.
