No lucke for Vinales at some gps.. This kids are all angry and 4sure Maverick is not a saint!! just wach out to that limits, will be very hard to cach Cortese on the Ktm a bike more stronger him engine just dont have the edge on the chassi but for Aragon the engine will count a lot and we know Cortese is super smart and consistente will not be esay and if some of you make mistakes you have Luis Salom that is riding super well and also have one bike that is very well made with the kalex chassi and ktm engine the best of both worlds..lolo Moto3 really is very exciting=) - Unregistered

Well, Maverick has been kind of a disappointment - I was expecting him to sweep the championship but his Honda is no match to all those KTM, Kudos to Cortese to take all he can from his KTM, he hasn't put a wheel wrong all season and I cannot see him losing the championship now...

Go Maverick, Go! Like your countryman Pedrosa, you need a bit of luck to beat Cortese. He is very experienced, but you are one of the most talented riders. Just keep pushing, and then will see if you can win the championship!

46 points is a big margin to make up in five races, but it's not insurmountable in Moto3. The racing is so close at some venues that the difference between winning an fifth place is often small.

That still relies on good fortune. While Vinales doesn't have to rely on Cortese making an error he does have to rely on other riders pulling off some good rides.

The BBC commentry of Moto3 at Misano was laughable. Almost from lap one we had to put up with hearing "here comes Vinales" every few laps as if he was nailed on to take the lead.
