Valencia Motogp: Vinales takes Moto3 crown

Maverick Vinales has won the final race of the 2013 season and with it the Moto3 world championship after a nail biting race. The fight for the title was close between Vinales, Alex Rins and Luis Salom, with all three of them qualifying on the front row. Vinales showed his intentions by taking the lead from Luis Salom on the first lap. None...

Carrasco

How good is she? 8th on an off-the-shelf KTM, which bears almost no resemblance to Maverick's bike. She can genuinely win a race in a year or two, and I'm going to piss myself laughing at the expression of the blokes who come 2nd and 3rd on the podium.

Maverick's back on track

 Being the clear title favourite in 2012 and losing it when all his huge Spanish sponsors and management were already arranging Moto2 tests will have hurt Maverick. He's looked unconvincing in last lap battles all season but as shown that he still has the outright pace, and when he really needs to up his game he does. I wasn't surprised to see no Repsol stickers on his bike this year considering what happened last year, which surely means he's Yamaha's answer to Marquez in the future. It all depends how quickly he can adapt to the bigger bike in Moto2. He'll be in the World Championship winning team with Pons Racing, so I fully expect him to be by the end of the season, up at the front and getting podium finishes. As for Salom (who will also be in Moto2 with Pons Racing), he looks like the type of rider who suits a Moto2 bike, so I expect him to do well. Alex Rins, he'll be in Moto3 next year and like Vinales in 2012, will have the pressure of the Spanish media and his sponsors to win the title convincingly and move to Moto2 in 2015, but it all depends on how much effort Honda put into their new Moto3 bike, if the rumours are true that the Estrella Galicia 0,0 squad are moving to Honda in 2014. Moto3 is looking very good for next year, with Miller moving to Ajo Motorsport, Danny Kent returning to Moto3 with Ajo also, Red Bull Rookies Cup winner Hanika moving up, Alex Marquez will surely be there also, along with McPhee, Antonelli, Isaac Vinales and Fenati in Valentino Rossi's new team. Can't wait.

Congratulations to Vinales

Especially after all the bullshit dished out by Moody and Ryder over the last few races about him being 'flaky'.

You have to wonder how much they really follow this sport. Vinales scored points in every race this year, only off the podium twice, three wins and a world championship to boot. That's a rock solid season in my books.

Yeah he threw a teenaged tanty last year. So what?

Rins may have been faster but Vinales ultimately wanted it more when it came down to it. Well done young man.

Having lost out in an awful lot of close runs to the line due to his KTM not having the engine, he duly kept his nerve and picked up podiums all season and finally put it together in the last race. Great race, great season, and a worthy champion.
