Great ride and congratulations to Marquez.
Bradley will be disappointed to finish at the back of the front group again, but it shows an improvement in competitiveness. Although his bike looked to be the slowest by some margin, he still got a new lap record with a time three tenths faster than the pole!

Smith disappointing I don't think so. What a ride with a bike 10kmh slower which was obvious on tv.

Great ride, just hope the bike gets better putting him on equal bikes as terol

If your bike lacks straight line speed, options are limited, although your lap times may be faster than the rest. Even if Smith had tried to hang back on the last lap and use the slipstream effect on the long Mugello straight, I'm not sure his bike had enough speed to get him ahead at the finish line.

He seems to have responded to criticism by trying to be a bit more aggressive in the last couple of races, but racecraft is more than that. I hope he doesn't come unstuck banging fairings when what's required is more cunning than aggression. Good luck to him for trying though, and being the only competitive UK rider in GPs at the moment.
