So am I, I wasn't expecting him to be so fast so soon, I was actually wondering if he'd made a mistake going to Ducati. Saying that it is Valencia & he hadn't a bad result on Sunday Over the course of the full season it'll be interesting to see how he does.

Vinales fastest again on Day 2 MotoGP?

Big crashes for both Suzuki riders at turn 12, Rins has a back injury & needs a month of rest.

Early days of course but I hope a sign of things to come -Vinales is a real talent. See marc has been dismissing him as a threat also. Also great to see Lorenzo putting in decent times on the Ducati straight out of the box. I would imagine the riding style for the Ducati is very dfferent to that of the Yamaha though as you have said, he is a bit of a specialist at Valencia.

I was surprised to see the Ducati 2017 bike testing still with the biggest wings on the fairing. I thought they were banned for 2017 which will make the bike handle a lot different in corner entry, something that Lorenzo relies on for fast corner speed. I'm confused about that but not confused about Maverick. It had taken Lorenzo 2 years on the Yamaha to get below the 1min 30 secs barrier, Mav does it after 2 days on the bike. He looked so smooth and after only 2 laps he looked completely at home on the M1, Vale has certainly got the hottest talent he and the rest have ever faced. Cant wait for 2017......

Yes the wings are banned for 2017, Ducati's logic for using them in the test was so they could get a direct comparison between the 2016 & 2017 bikes.
However as pointed out by one of the commentators as this is Lorenzo's only test until 2017 you'd think they have wanted to give him time on the bike as it will be next year (without wings)

So happy to see some MotoGP fans on here. MotoGP is about the only championship I follow.
Would we have any interest in an AO fantasy league? Perhaps if MCN are doing one again we could use that? Although I'd rather stick with just MotoGP, Moto2 and 3.
