MOI, I don't know what your on but it must be pretty mind warping. He has had virtually no time on the bike - not like all the other motgp folk on the grid and if he's not suitable for top motogp team why is Vali going to yamaha-Rea is faster than him and Cal spent a full year throwing the bike up the road to get were he is today and is still throwing it up the road- Rea beat him last time out! Advice- get real!!!

Its a pity wach him go to Wsbk for 2013!! I think he has been done outstanding job, shure he is on top machine but ey is not crashing and really is short time to learn he need at least one sesson like Cal have.. Both of them are impressive and i star to agree more with some people that say that Rea would be great Motogp rider.. Cal is very fast great qualify rider, Rea has been taking setp by setp the weather also dont help but was great qualify.. i think bautista is not very happy with that=) but porr guy had problems aim shure Bautista will be better on race

some posters need to stop being captivated by his cheeky smile! and wake up up to reality!!!

Rea has already tested at Aragon, 62 laps according to the BBC ""

So he has track knowledge and at least a good base setup, yet on the fastest factory bike, he is a second behind Pedrosa, who Stoner routinely out qualifies.

The last second or so worth of pace really demonstrates the difference between a world class rider and a merely good one. Ask any racer, the last few tenths are the hardest to come by, even Toseland qualified 6th at his first MotoGP race on a Tech 3 Yam, and whilst good he was never in Stoner / Lorenzo's league.
