MotoGP » Moto2: Stefan Bradl reflects on world title glory

"Usually you win a championship when you cross the finish line at the end of a race, so this is a bit different. But this way is also okay!" - Stefan Bradl.

I'd prefer Marquez to take the title, but there is no taking away the merit from Bradl. I consider Marquez to be more talented and with a greater future ahead, but Bradl kept his cool, fighting at the front in every race (even if Marquez won most after a poor championship start) for victory.
Again, Bradl did nothing wrong which is almost the same as doing everything right (Marquez had a poor start of the season and bad luck at the end of the season, so he was far from perfect, except during the middle of the season).
Bradl deserved the title, IMO, even if he is not the best rider.

Stefan deserves the title very well, because championship does not compulsorily go not to the fastest, but to the most consistent rider - otherwise you could add up the quickest lap of each rider during the races..

Marquez - who was very better sponsored, financed and supported than Stefan -simply had way to many crashes, many of them unforced out of his own mistakes .

"The best rider is a rider who can be consistent throughout the ENTIRE season."

No, not really, no.
He did allright, but that doesn't prove he is the best rider. Some race direction decisions, even if you agree with them, also added to the championship decision. You could add in that, some flawed marshal actions...
