Not very smart, accusing other competitors of cheating when it's clearly proven that's not the case.

Face it kid, you're just not that fast.

Edit: Having said that, I do applaud the Tech3 team for making their own chassis, they're doing an admirable job with such a tight budget.

@Firefly

What? How dare you? The very first chapter from 'Carl Fogarty's Bumper Book of Excuses' is to claim the other teams cheated.

Then there's the 'unfair technical advantage' and 'tyres developed for certain riders' excuses.

How else are you ever supposed to justify being continuously beaten?
Before making wild accusations I seriously suggest you check Colin Edwards' MotoGP career for further details.

Whoa! Steady on guys- for a start Bradley Smith is faster than literally 99.99% of the population.
Don't give the guy a hard time.

People like Rossi, Hayden, and Melandri have demonstrated that without a good bike under you results are impossible to come by. The Tech 3 Mistral wasn't great and it's fair to say that the better funded teams had access to 'preferential' parts and could invest in more development.
Think of all the extra testing Elias and Marquez had when it wasn't banned.

No, Smith isn't the next Marquez but then who is?
He's a solid, fast rider with a great work ethic and is a top PR man.
Bradders, I'm rooting for you in 2013.

I commented yesterday that MM is consistent. The champs always are.
Bradders is on point one week and nowhere the next.
The comment about VR & MMelandri being off the pace without a good enough package is relevant.
I think Bradly gets the best out of his bike on any given day. Lets hops he has lots of these days next season, as he clearly has the ability to be fasted in 125's & Moto 2 why not MotoGP as well?
I can't wait!

@ Firefly 'Face it kid, you're just not that fast.

Ok, so which one is it? Is he doing an 'admirable job' or is he 'just not that fast'?
