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.

"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.
