Viñales finding his feet with Aprilia after maiden top 10

At Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, the number 12 recorded his best finish to date on the RS-GP, making up 11 places during the race to take the chequered flag eighth. Hardly a career-best result by any means, this is a multiple premier class race winner after all, but it is a sign of the progress being made by Viñales and Aprilia just four Grand Prix into their fledgling relationship.
