Not really, but his bike was faster down the straight. Good fight from Fenati. Maybe if his bike said Repsol on it he could have kept up with Maverick.

Well-done to Vinales and Fenati. You shouldn't forget experience was also on Vinales' side.

Does anyone know why the Oliveira/Rins bike's name was changed to Suter Honda? It was simply Honda in the qualifying.

@: pcxmac if you had actually looked at the speed traps this weekend, ud have noticed that there is barely difference in top speed between the FTR Hondas, they are all within 2kph - 3kph of eachother. any differences are mainly down to individual gearing...


anyway amazing race by vinales. he killed everyone for pace. now i know why he wasnt that bothered about going after pole. how on earth did he do lap 1 second quikcer in the race, than in qualy ?!?!?! also congrats to Fenati, for being the only one to even remotely be able to live with Vinales at least some of the way. he rally does like like the next big thing from italy...

Oliviera and Rins are riding Honda in a Suter chassis. For most of pre-season testing, they were running standard NSF Honda's(the same that Antonelli is still using) but then got the Suter chassis at the very last test. Dunno why it took Suter so long to build the Moto3 chassis, since FTR had a chassis ready for Vinales back in November.....
