It's Vinales' first year in Moto2....
He left Rabat for dead at COTA, winning his 2nd race by over 4 seconds.
It's only his 4th year in Grand Prix racing on a whole... he's won races since his 1st year and never finished lower than 3rd in a championship (3rd 125cc, 3rd Moto3, 1st Moto3, currently 3rd Moto2.) And the first 2 years were without any factory backing.

To put it into perspective... Marquez has 2 podiums in his first 2 years in 125 with factory backing, no wins.
Vinales had 15 podiums in his first 2 years, 9 of them were wins.

He is a young gun....I just hope he hasn't made a mistake going to Suzuki.

I'd like to see Hayden on a Suzuki or Aprilia FACTORY next year. I'm not sure why they want no-namers on a factory bike when you have a VETERAN who is really a great ride and great with helping develop it as well.

"Bradley might get another chance by default! If he does, he'd better make the most of it!"

Not in Herves opinion he's severely underperforming and can't handle the pressure thats Herves opinion.

"Aspar boot Hiroshi Aoyama and give Camier a honda. Aoyama is fast but not consistant as late"

He will keep his ride Honda will want to keep a Japanese rider in motogp for as long as possible. Lets see how Camier does first though it should be interesting to see how he does.

Without any word from PBM it's likely their out of MGP. Aprilia at this time is the only team to have one seat open eventhough Crash speculates it will be Melandri I think they'd be better suited with a different rider. Not that it would happen but it would be fantastic to see them get Biaggi to ride the bike for 1 - 2 years but just like Bayliss will stay retired I think the same for Biaggi.

Why not throw Guinters a bone for winning the WSB championship? But like others why settle for 10th or lower in MGP when you can challenge in WSB.

OK Crash - what's the deal with the comment about Karel Abraham? We all know his Dad owns the team but they guy is deserving of a place on the grid. Your comment adds nothing to this piece of information. It sounds more like a cynical side swipe and you should be bigger than that. I expect it from some of the muppets in the forums but not from the site content writers.

"Dorna re-classified Ducati as a factory"

Lets be clear here Dorna's name is getting thrown around a little to loosely here.

The key word is tue GP commoission made up of the the irta headed by Poncharal, MSMA manufacturers were Yamaha agrees with everything Honda says for the most part and them Dorna.

Its a team effort in grand prix motorcycle racing.
