As I said, the astonishing pace of Vinales's development has been exciting to watch. A real GP star of the future. Those who said 125GP is boring because Terol had been dominating, don't seem to appreciate the subtler enjoyments to be found in racing, particularly seeing the next generation of stars coming through. The commentator's unintended, "celebrating in Paris tonight", double entendre was also priceless!

good on him. great pass on the last corner,
i laughed when Nick Harris said "i wonder if he's a party boy like, he could party in Paris, umm the city i mean" hahahaa

First win of many.
Still, a pity from my POV he is showing Miguel Oliveira the way. I wonder if Miguel had again problems with the forearms!?
Anyway, Maverick showed he is another probable star from the spanish furnace. Although Spain only had (until now) 2 world champions (MotoGP / 500)

Just what the 125 class needed, great stuff!! Just hope Oliveira and a few others will get a move on and stick it to Terol and try to make him crack a little. Nothing against him, just dont want him walking away with it!!
