The first Saturday of 2019 was for Maverick Viñales, who has flown in Qatar to sign a brilliant pole. The Spaniard was the fastest while his teammate, Rossi, sank in the classification and was not even able to enter the top twelve on the grid. Yamaha de Maverick works perfectly, while the Italian does not and will start in the race from 14th position. His gestures of anger made it clear what is happening.
"I felt very good, in FP4 we changed some things that worked, I felt strong and this was important," said Viñales, the happiest man of the day after 2018 with many problems.
Something similar happens with the Honda, because while Márquez made third in Q2, Lorenzo, who fell twice, will start this Sunday from the position number 15. The Spaniard has not felt comfortable and in the accident of the morning there was a good hit.
