like your tactics....
as a a brit you can't take the pressure while leading the championship...give them a little headstart then chase them!!!!
seriously though, if a team like aspar's can't find the root cause you gotta worry. Next race, fresh engine, fresh start and whup the spaniards at home - show 'em who's boss.
It's time bradders.. step up and lead the way

I think all things considered, 7mph top speed difference on a 125 is massive, that this is the kind of result that wins championships. Decent points on a dissapointing weekend. Bradley didn't throw it down the road in frustration, which shows how much he's matured as a rider. I think it could be a double win at Jerez for Smith and Redding, if their bikes are working...

Hopefully this isn't related to the same "down on power" engine from the pre-season Jerez test ?

Although Marquez, Esp & Vasquez are fast I can't see them being consistent. For me Mr T is the main championship challenger to Brad.

With the speed Brad showed he had in the corners, just get the spinnicker up for the straight bits and he should be able to have some real fun. Good luck Bradley.
