Well done, Miguel. FOr quite some time, I thought of Cortese's season as a non worthy of a championship as VInales was doing it all in a champion's style - winning quite often. Cortese was playing it safe and lucky. However, Vinales faultered and Cortese came to the front - and his championship is deserved. But - there is a major factor in it all: the KTM was the bike best from the beginning and it only got better. Vinales did his tantrums, which might bite him back, with some rationale behind it: the Honda was not up to par, and he really couldn't fight for the championship on such a bike. He doesn't excuse his behaviour but justifies it. In conclusuon, with a Honda (which might have some recent upgrade, I don't know) that doesn't compare to the rocket KTM, Miguel Oliveira did - finally! - an excellent race and, in a fellow countryman's mind, he deserved the win this time. OH well! May be in Valencia he will get there.
