Hahahaha Watching free practice i had a huge smile come over my face as i imagined all the people who slagged Abraham off not so long ago cringing with embarassment as they saw him go to the top of the time sheet hahahaha. I am so pleased even though he dropped to 2nd.I can see them now thinking what they are going to come back with. Oh his dad owns the circuit blah blah blah yes but he still has to ride the bike.this won't be the only time he does this keep watching from behind your sofas.He might not go out and get pole or win the race but you are not going to be 2nd in practice at any track if you are rubbish .

Very pleased to see Abraham on top of the timesheets for so long. And yep, I couldn't help to think the same. :p

Then again, he's been doing fairly well in Moto2 all season already, it's not the first time that he shows up at the front. Sure, he made his way into the championship via his dad's money, but that doesn't mean he's got no talent.

Barbera is doing well enough on the Ducati this year and who'd have expected that from him at the beginning of the season? I think Abraham can do something similar next year in MotoGP and before he moves up maybe even take a podium or two in Moto2. We'll see.

if it took us knocking him down for his time to improve, what does that say about him as a racer? think about it.

We should start slagging Abraham more. By Sunday he should be a race winner.

Completely talentless? no

Most deserving of a new GP ride? no

Do you think he just MIGHT have practiced once or twice before on the track that his dad owns?

Time for a little reality... he's 14th in the championship. When's the last time someone 14th in a 250cc championship stepped up to MotoGP?

If you want to cheer on a rich kid hoping that he proves he deserves the opportunity he's been given after the fact, then go right ahead, knock yourself out. I prefer working class guys who have to make real sacrifices for their sport and earn their spot before they're given it.

What a load of Rubbish some people spew out.As if a few misinformed envy driven remarks on here can make someone perform better. More deserving riders my **** you are only deserving if you can find the backing by what ever means available to you. I prefer working class riders whohave had to make sacrifices. What a simplistic and nieve view. Grow up and step into the real world. Go KA

@ Locks, Stocks, and two smoking poles

So Locks in your un-naive world a world championship's grid would be made up of rich people's kids, friends, or guys good looking or charming enough to secure enough backing?

And NOT the most talented racers in the world? That's interesting... what an exciting racing sport that would be... knowing you're not watching the world's

Saw your favorite rich kid didn't make it to the grid... poor guy bumped his little head and sat out. He seemed well enough to be walking around the MotoGP grid though. Must be nice to have the choice not to race because daddy will always have your back.

Any other rider would've made the grid. What a pu$$y.
