Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

An exciting final qualifying session at #jerez de la Frontera in Spain this afternoon saw #teamsuzuki ECSTAR’s #maverickviales and Aleix Espargaró position their GSX-RRs fifth and sixth on the grid for tomorrow’s fourth round of the MotoGP™ World Championship. 

Viñales, who was running 11th in the closing stages of Q2, put in a personal best-lap of 1'39.581 on his eighth and final lap to put the 2016 GSX-RR in the middle of the second row, while Espargaró sits beside him after his seventh and final lap-time of 1'39.588. 

Today proved positive all round with both Viñales and Espargaró consistently strong in FP3, where they both earned automatic qualification through to the all-important Q2; and they showed a consistent feeling with their machines. The FP4 was also a beneficial and positive one as both riders focused on finding a good race-pace, which proved them to be competitive also.
