"It's the same as the case of Terol - he wastes one year" Not even close to the same case. Nico Terol spent 8 years in 125cc!, finally winning the WC at 23. Vinales is still just 17, and has already proven himself a bigger standout in a MUCH shorter time than Terol. He has plenty of time, and without the mistakes he will probably be WC next year. IMO, Terol is more a case of a good rider, on the best bike, eventually winning due to years and years of experience compared to his less experienced rivals. Especially after basically all the riders that really took it to him in 2010 moved to Moto2 in 2011. I'm not say Terol isn't a great rider, but I'm not surprised he hasn't shone in Moto2. It took him a good 5-6 years to even vaguely stand out in 125's.
