I said it before but i'll say it again because this guy isn't having an easy life getting the deserved recognition (those who weren't able to see yet, you'll see it all trough the year) that Oliveira IS Viñales strongest rival. It's just being portuguese tends to make you slightly blured in the crowd. Luckly for Miguel that Alzamora is an awkeye and a exquisit human resources manager.
