“In the getgo, I’t asked Yamaha for a bigger bike because the main one that I ’t had been riding up until was too large for me”, Vinales told Motorsport.com.

“from the that I fitted perfectly about the Suzuki and I could reach everywhere, while with the M1 I felt I had an excessive amount of bike.

“It is difficult to change the bike like a whole, but if we consider the engine, some details and also some matters of this aero dynamics, I believe the difference can be essential. ”

“It was presumed that your decision was mine, but I cannot unilaterally decide . It was a decision taken with Yamaha. The strain we experienced was not unnecessary.

“Technically, it is quite tricky to find somebody better than him, but I was viewed as the only person in charge of him leaving and it wasn’t enjoy that. That left us have a lousy moment. ”
