You look a lot faster than me!

No need to cover your controls.

Your inside grip looks odd with only half your hand on the grip. Think of the grip as a screwdriver and move your hand inboard so it's not hanging off the edge. That said, a friend of mine has a similar grip and he's dragging elbow so what do I know?

The position of the hand I do not know if it is right or wrong, but to bring the head closer to the handlebar, I have to take it that way, the wrist does not bend me as much

Pd: I just saw more photos and I think it's to clutch with one or two fingers and not crush the others (short levers)

always 'look' into the corner with your body too.

freaking sweet pictures. I would say continue to grow at your own pace
you will eventually find the line, and usually that line is where your tires have no more grip

Read Twist of the Wrist and Sport Riding Techniques if you can order them'

you only ever have 100 points to spend on any facet of riding a bike (true for life too)

love the bike too!!!

Point your inside foot more. Your foot should be at about a 45degree angle. Looks a little bit 'flat'. This will help transfer weight off of your inside arm, helping the bike steer.

You're looking great!

It sort of seems like your reaching forward with your head?. maybe it's just the camera angle. Try and have a relaxed neck and keep it inline with your body, this saves a lot of energy and your neck won't hurt after a long day at the track.
