Texas Moto2: Vinales steps up with first win

Reigning Moto3 world champion Maverick Vinales has taken his first victory in the Moto2 class on only his second race in the class, controlling a crash-strewn damp race from the front to take victory by four seconds from Tito Rabat. Dominique Aegerter was the early race leader, leading from the line safely until Vinales was able to pass with ease and...

Unlucky for both Brits.

Both Lowes and Rea showed real grit overcoming their respective problems in the race - Lowes' being punted off and Rea's qualifying result after one problem after another during the free practise sessions. Still, it's a level playing field next race which hopefully will result in better for both riders.

Impressive ride

 Vinales never looked out of shape, he controlled the race once he reached the front. What was more impressive for me, however, was how calm he was when he was battling his way to the front. He looked very much at ease, something i never really saw of him last year in Moto3! And this was only his second race, if he carries on like this we may have another superstar in the making. 

Great race overall, gutted for Sam! Both Lowes brothers had a rough weekend but i'm positive they will start getting the results they deserve soon!

That race had it's moments

I don't think Vinales talent has ever really been in question (Moody and Jules apart, but they're hardly the most astute observers out there). But yes, great composure from the young man in both his intermediate class starts to date. He's shaping up to be a real challenger for Rabat is what could be construed as a softer championship year than the last couple.

Zarco - a shame he had to get all French out there and lost the plot. Poor old Simon was looking as good as he ever has in Moto2. And the other Caterham bike did the same thing with the out of his depth Septic Herrin on board skittling the rear of the field shortly after the start. Expect to see penalty points handed to both.
