Amazing, this guy is riding a bike thats had little to no development since its introduction and yet still manages to finish 8th. But, you don't think he deserves a chance in MotoGP?

It would appear his team Boss and owner knows something you don't!!

Lot's of negativity about Bradley, I think he'll do ok on the tech 3, he knows all the tracks and the bigger bike will suit his stature more. Probably get a least a podium next year and run Cal close all year!

The way I see it is Bradley finished 8th and was the 1st Mistral chassis the other, his team mate crashed out.
The favorite boy Scott Redding who can do no wrong on this board was 7th only .4 in front of Bradley but WAS the 4th Kalex chassis to do so. So now what's the excuses going to be this time.
The Moto2 class is great but go by facts and that is Tech 3 against the rest and the rest are real companies who just work at building the best packages for their customers. These companies have improved a great deal from the 2011 season until now and continue to test. Tech3 tested only once this year as Herve just don't give a damn.

hoooohhHhHH...next year tech3 will have a crasher and midpack finisher...so will have Honda vs factory yamaha at front...great job tech3 for ruining 2013...

@SAM
I don't care if he use mistral or whatever chasis...if he can't win then move to another team that have potential to win...be a moto2 champ or regular winner then he deserves the ticket to motogp...

Lets not forget that many people were saying the same about Cal this time almost 2 seasons ago, and look how thats turned out. He's a top 5 runner and only behind the likes of Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Stoner and Dovi. Yes some still take shots at Cal for coming 5th behijd these more experienced guys, but thats just the people who dont fully understand the sport.

I assume its the same peope doubting Bradley, but im sure they will end up with more humble pie on their faces when Bradley does well. The only 'problem' is that it appears that if a rider cant beat the top 3, or even mix it up with them, then their useless and should be booted out of moto gp. Its a strange grasp of the sport, but theres always going to be the odd few like that that post many different comments under different names to try and make out as though their not the only one that has these strange opinions/comments.

Good luck Bradley, you have 2 years to show us what you can do!

Move to another team? with No step forward to Motogp.?? That was a good reason and real reason to stay at the time, after have good results in moto2 last year. Not having a good bike this season to going to a Yamaha Motogp bike sounds like a good trade off, just ask any Moto2 riders who would want that ride. Redding has a better bike now and he can't get results with(WINS) and has to now stay in Moto2 cause his team has no Motogp bikes. Brad made good choice. Believe in Him!!
