Despite the negative impression oh his father's money which took him to this class, and he has to prove he deserve to be there, I gave credit to what his father's been doing w/ his money to the sport n to his country. How's the excitement of the country having a motogp rider !!!
And IMO it exactly has to be done by big spanish co for yamaha to suppport spanish rider ....
Why yamaha chase petronas & air asia (malaysian), yamaha indonesia ? No malaysian/indonesian rider in there. I take the rider marketing value off it (especially w/ VR), I just want to put the pressure on spanish co should take a larger support to their rider, for yamaha in this case.

Placing Abraham name in that same sentence was a comparison. The difference being De Puniet has more wins and has been on the podium 10x more than KA in the lower classes. Not to mention that he is also the 1998 125 french champion.

It would seem the only real difference between Abraham and someone like Ratthapark Wilairot, would be who their fathers are...

If Karel Abraham beats Rossi this year will that make him the GOAT? He is on a satellite bike and a rookie too.
But seriously, Despite the circumstances he won a race in moto2 the class wherew everybody excels by their individual riding ability alone, with no trick bits from the manufacturer or overnight specials. None of the current GP riders aside from Elias ever had to face that type of competition. Sort of like calling something a world championship in the absence of riders from several continents. You may be the best of what was available, but by no means is it comparable to the olympics in terms of competition. Give the kid a chance.

I met Karel last week at the TGR bike launch here in the Czech Republic and he is a very pleasant, personable, articulate, approachable and down to earth young man. I for one am delighted that he is racing in the top class in 2011. He is in MotoGP because he is a bloody good rider and irresepective of if his Dad's companies have funded it or not, he is still talented on two wheels. No money in the world would get the likes of any of us who read this on to the grid, so ******** to all of those saying that he is only there beacuse of family connections. I would say that there are precious few people riding motorcycles at the full time professional level who did not have parents who pumped a whole load of cash into them. It is not a sport where generally kids with unemployed parents on the local sink hole estate come to the fore.

So go on Karel, we here in Czech Republic are proud to bits of you (including us expat foreigners) and will be behind you every step of the way.
