I thought he did well, but with someone of Bradley's quality and potential, I was hoping for more and would expect steady progress towards podiums by the end of the season. For me, the big question mark was Scott!!!

showed up Scot Redding big time.....Good luck to him...

Did anyone else think Redding looked like a n0b on the grid with his purple hair, stupid ear phones and singing along to his tunes??? I think he needs to come down a peg or two and focus on the racing, he still has a long way to go.....

@ grantrd

Bit unkind to Redding as the red hair was only to publicise his charity efforts for Comic Relief this weekend. But yeah, there's a bit of the superstar aura beginning to surround him when he still has much to prove yet.

Bradley has been on the international scene for some time now. He's not a Spies or Lorenzo- instantly competetive from the word go.
Rossi is regarded as one of the all time greats, but even he didn't win 125, 250 or 500 on his first try.
He learns and gets faster.

A top ten on a Tech Trois (mouth full!)is a great result. I'm sure he'll get a few top 6's this year, and maybe a podium if the bike improves?
There is no shame sitting aorund the 10th mark in his first year, however, and compared to Scott you can tell Bradley's maturity.

"Rossi is regarded as one of the all time greats, but even he didn't win 125, 250 or 500 on his first try."
