Monster Yamaha’s Maverick Vinales has bounced back from his motocross crash and believes the coronavirus delay could play into his typical late-season form.

The Spaniard, who had to spend a precautionary night in hopsital after an MX crash, says the Covid19 period is an opportunity to make himself better before the season finally gets underway.

It is what it is, we cannot change, it is for everyone the same. It is more days to improve myself which is important because it is good to keep concentrating on yourself, said Vinales.

“Now I have a little more time to be prepared for the year, it is an opportunity to improve. It is still now pre-season so we have to make another plan, keep the intensity in training and on the bike.

“I am trying to be on the bike the most days that I can because it is important to keep riding. We are training with motocross, supermoto, on the track not with the M1 but with a different bike.

“It is important to start as soon as possible. For sure it will be a very busy year but normally I arrive on very good form towards the end of the year, so for me it is good it is later.”
