Bradley will never be faster than you arm chair racing trolls, even he knows that!!!

But what he does know is he IS riding a MotoGP bike next year & has had a good test, not thrown it at the scenery or damaged it in any way. He also knows what needs to be done before the February 2013 test.

Best of British to you Bradley & well done to Cal for A, helping you out & B,that great lap at the end of the day today.

Well done Brad, keep up the good work.

So does anyone know why he wont be testing at Sepang later this month? Is it just a private Honda test? Will Honda not be testing in February?

Stefan Bradl was also 2.3s from the fastest time (also Pedrosa) in his first MotoGP test at Valencia in 2011, and he went on to have a pretty respectable rookie season after that. It's a steep learning curve, and Smith has been told to take it easy for now. He did ok.

Cal was supportive because he knows there isnt any reason not to be, there is no or ever will be any threat coming from that side of the garage.

All you loyal supporters, keep dreaming.

Yes he's british, yes he's young bla bla but you all know who the real young UK talent was that should have had motogp seat and it isnt him, you can now over react, get angry what ever but you know this is true.

Money can pay for you to be in the right paddock and pay for you to go up through the right classes but once you arrive here theres only so much it will get you.

love it how people manage to bash every racer somehow. maybe cal is being supportive because they are team mates, or even friends. maybe, we should wait until next year before saying Bradley won't be fast. just a thought
