The second Moto2 season was a busy one for riders, with many riders missing out on the top prize of the championship due to lack of time. Valentino Rossi is one rider who missed out on the championship, which is an absolute shame as he has proved himself as one of the better riders in the class. However, Valentino has no problems telling you how he feels about being fourth in the class, or even third.
The second season of the Moto2 championship saw some big changes to the class and the teams, with more new bikes coming onto the market. One new bike was introduced with its own unique chassis and engine specification, as opposed to the usual engines and body styles of the other manufacturers. The bike was developed by Yamaha, and as you would expect the engine has been developed specifically for it. Yamaha has spent many years researching what makes a good engine for a motorcycle, so we can expect the bikes to be very competitive at the start of the season.
The different engine designs are not just to make the bikes look different, but they also have a role to play in the power of the engine. Each manufacturer has its own unique design, which is why each rider has different characteristics when it comes to racing. They also have different handling characteristics when it comes to acceleration, cornering, braking and acceleration.
Yamaha is currently leading the way when it comes to the power of their engines in the Moto2 class, so we can expect to see Valentino's bike at the front in Valencia, but what about Yamaha's rivals? Will they catch up to the Italian?
The competition is fierce in the field of the top two finishers in the Moto2 championship, so it is very likely that Valentino will miss out on winning his second title. However, the other contenders, such as Alvaro Bautista and Marc Marquez are both very talented riders and they have very promising futures, which means they could well end up winning the championship.
It is still very early in the season to decide the race winners in the Moto2 class, so the season will see many surprises, and hopefully more podium finishes from the top riders. We will be watching to see what happens between the Yamaha and Honda teams, but we can expect another interesting battle between Marc Marquez and Bautista to take place in Valencia.
