Bradley second, and still down slightly on top end. The aero package has obviously helped, cant wait for the race!

Where are all the haters, im sure you have something to negative to say as you usually do.

from reading the article it seems Brad won't have the aero package until tomorrow, so hopefully there's a bit to be found with that which should help narrow to gap to Pol slightly.

5 mph down on top speed and still second. Only practice and the race will be a tougher challenge, but good stuff.

Sensible from Tech3 to get the bike settings sorted before introducing a vraiable into the mix.

bikenutter - less of the "we" please, some of us can see furher than just results. All the bikes on the grid, and all the riders, are world class - none are bad as such - so the following comments are relative. EITHER Terol only won the 125 championship because he was on by far the best bike and he's actually a poor rider, OR he's a good rider who's now on a bad bike in Moto2. I don't know which it is, maybe he's a so-so rider who was on a fantastic bike and is now on a mediocre one, (unlikely), but the point is that whichever way you look at it, it shows that machinery makes a huge difference. When Smith was Terol's team mate, it's highly significant that he never got to win a race until the championship had been decided, and it wasn't because he'd suddenly improved at seaaon's end either.
