Thing is, the guy was WSB one week then MotoGP the next over the past month, that's hardly time to acclimatise properly to the Repsol machine. I think he's done ok under the circumstances. He's a good lad is JR.

JR did a great job. He was a lot closer to the guys in front.1 second slower than the fastest guys on a pretty big lap is impressive. Given a full time ride JR can be up there but it needs to be in the next few seasons.

Most of the negative posting on JR surely is on purpose for a wind up cos they obviously know jack s***. Armchair agitators wonder how many have raced. F1 on the xbox probably.

Regardless of what the armchair retards here think JR did the job he was asked to do. Here's your reward do Suzuka plus HRC will support you next year in WSB. Take this bike and don't crash, get us some points and have fun. The paddock and press barely knew him. All were impressed. That's what counts. JR said the hardest thing to get used to is the tyres, he had to ride passed his 'programmed' limits that takes time as any biker knows. Regardless of what the uninformed think his stock is very high within HRC and that is what counts. If he delivers next year on the blade he will be in GPs. As for his crashing in WSB this is what happens when your having to ride the weakest bike past the limit to be competitive.

Rea is an innocent, he never knew anything about Motogp nor cares for sure, when it first appeared in Gp nobody knew who he was, seemed an alien for most people, nobody said anything about who replace Stoner, nobody knew anything! Rea dont have friends in Motogp was the first time he saw everyone, nor indeed he was a pilot, when running with the HRC was the first time he ride a motorcycle, Basically I want to say that what he did was a miracle worthy of receive a kiss depart for the Queen and have her wax figure ..

Please please what he did was equal hiroshi aoyama

Jonathan Rea is one the those very rare things - a really, really good bloke!!Not only has he impressed with his riding, but also with his attitude and general demeaner. What he says, how he says it and how he manages himself has done a lot for this lad and whether or not he finally ends up in MotoGP, he has impressed a lot of people and done a lot of good for himself in the process. Top bloke!!!!!

I agree with the posting of herewego but it ,in my view if JR could have slotted in at position no 6.
On the other hand he would have to ride to the limit.
He probely made the right choice to settle for position no 7 as a crash would not be in his best interests Honda would not have been pleased if he bent
the bike.
I think his future is in wsb as honda want that championship and to retain it.

id just like to say well done johhny, folk who think you were gonna jump on a works moto gp bike and win live in cuckoo land, im glad your staying in wsb its far more exciting than moto gp which to be honest is boring, follow the leader then try to pass last lap not what racing is about, compare the arragon race with the two bsb races at silverstone,real racers who want to lead every lap not parade around, good luck next year johhny hope honda will sort you out with a better bike, old3wheeler
