Team #suzuki ECSTAR’s #maverickviales put together a potential front-row starting position with third place in today’s second Free Practice session ahead of round three of the MotoGP™ World Championship at the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, #texas as team-mate Aleix Espargaró suffered a small get-off in the closing stages and finished 14th. 

Both riders improved their lap-times and also settings aboard their GSX-RRs; Viñales scored a lap-time of 2'04.895 compared his earlier FP1 time of 2:06.337, while Espargaró clocked a 2'05.662-lap (2'06.482 in FP1). 

The morning session was spent by both to get acquainted with the new grip of the track, as well as the tyres and set-up. The lap-times dropped pretty quickly and both Viñales and Espargaró found good feelings and efficiency with their GSX-RRs.
