"As an industry we can definitely learn a lot from them and with so many F1 teams here I'm surprised that we haven't" - Bradley Smith.

I bet Aspar well cheesed off that he did not offer Bradley a Moto2 ride now lol.

But at least one thing this smug team will get this year is a 125 title with their cocky rider Terol which is a shame coz money talks and that is not right on my book

I'm glad for Smith, that he is no longer associated with Aspar. I think they undermined his efforts last season, to make Terol a champion and it backfired on them, when Marquez stoled the show...

As for his idea, I kinda of thought that is what is going on now in Moto2...

Bradley is proving he is naive and has people around him talking utter nonsense. Norton will never get a bike to the MotoGp grid. It can not even pay its bills for the production effort... and will be bankrupt in weeks leaving much money owed to creditors. How's that for service to the industry? The same as the benefit to MotoGP which F1 has bought in the past! Ask Kenny Roberts who always believed it would be a benefit until he gave responsibility to John Barnard who went and raped him and the project. And speak to the FTR guys about F1! It's spit & expletives...
Bradley, sssshhhhh... keep it shut and ride the bike. You're a long, long way from BBC Sports Personality of the Year and an OBE.

Pilgy said it all really.Kenny snr tried and failed with F1 input and was stitched up by the huge sponsorship deal he needed in order to get the financial backing to probably end up at the ars3 end of the field.Brads "idea" in a perfect world may be a good one but the amount of financial backing it would take to just get one team into Moto GP let alone several wouldn't happen.Formula 1 has masses and masses of global financial support and backing and Bike sport in general doesn't.It's always played second fiddle to F1 regardless of how boring F1 has become.Still you have to humour little Brad,he is ginger after all !!!

F1 teams in MotoGP.
Didn't Honda have an F1 team if they wanted to draw on resources.
Sauber tried and sold the engine to Foggy for the FP1.
Ilmor (well F1 engines) turned up once and left.
Remember F1 has 4 wheels and MotoGP has 2 wheels plus a mad person shifting their weight and the bike all over the place so they can't be designed the same, Ducati take note.
