November 15, 2016. Maverick Vinales tops the opening day of post-season MotoGP testing at Valencia on his debut with his new Yamaha team, recording a best time of 1m30.930s.
November 14, 2017. Vinales again tops the first day of Valencia testing for Yamaha with a 1m30.189s.
And the intervening 12 months? A rollercoaster of a season that started in the best possible way - three wins in the first five races and a comfortable points lead - and ended in confusion and dismay.
