Alongside Johann Zarco, Sam Lowes and Jonas Folger, Rins is the other new addition to the MotoGP™ ranks in 2017 – and he's got the pick of the rides. Rins was in the hunt for the 2016 Moto2™ title before Zarco and then a fast-finishing Tom Luthi finished in front of him, and in his first outing on the Suzuki the downturn continued when he suffered two compressed vertebrae. As far timing was concerned, it wasn't too bad as he spent December and January recovering before getting back on the Ecstar Suzuki . And the break has appeared to have cleared his head well, as he has been fast at Sepang and Phillip Island, clearly demonstrating why Suzuki was interested in him in the first place.
