LOL. You people make no sense. Hayden is only 7 points behind Rossi in the standings. And yet, he should go to WSBK??
He should have gone back to Honda.

re: Brad Smith...

Listen, you pillocks... dude was at the sharp end all throughout 125cc. He's done well in Moto2 given that the Mistral is a bike which is somewhere between Moriwaki and Schwinn in top end speed. Since there's no one to compare him to, no high-calibre rider ALSO on the Mistral who is kicking ass and taking names, we'll just have to wait and see.

Honestly, if the kid is learning to go fast on a slow bike, by the time he gets onto a FAST bike - which the M1 definitely is - he's going to kick ass and take names himself.

One thing for sure, he's the fastest guy to ever ride a Mistral-framed bike. Until one of you does better, how about a little cup of STFU?

@ Screechin Weasel

In the 125cc class Bradley Smith placed 19th in 2006, 10th in 2007, 6th in 2008, 2nd in 2009 and 4th in 2010.

Cant see a consistent top 3 finisher there can you?

In the Moto2 class he finished 7th in 2011 and 7th in 2012.

Smith is nether good enough nor has he delivered anything that is anywhere near what is needed. He should not be in MotoGP as he cannot even compete in Moto2.

Well i really dont want only 3 riders 4 a championship fight. But what can i do , really ducati shoud leave and dorna should bring back Suzuki, Kawasaki , Bmw and Aprilla . Only two spots left for riders , Tech 3 and Lcr Honda rider 2
Cal was good on a Honda at his times in wss , could he a make a return
Carl Foggy was right Crts should have an advantage , tyres so competition would become better crts against prototypes no disadvantage 4 any1

You are never going to win Moto GP unless you are on a factory bike and there are only three factory teams,
satellite teams are few and far between, and CRT bikes!....
if you had (I won the CRT category in Moto GP) on yous CV it would be like saying I won the Mongolian super bike championship, is there any point anymore?
