Bradley better perform in 2013 or its going to be costly for tech 3 to buy out Bradeys contract. I have no doubt this will happen if he does not perform as there is alot of motogp riders up for new contracts in 2014 and riders from moto2 (like pol espargaro) will be waiting for a motogp ride.

I mention how long I have been watching the sport because it is relevant. I can't can't recall a single incident of a world championship motorcycle team deliberately breaking the technical rules for almost as long as there has been a championship. That is relevant and a valid argument. Just saying "it must happen" without a single example being given is a pretty poor response. Instead of hitting the disagree button, how about giving some examples of it happening, ever, in the history of the FIM championships. That is 1949 onwards and thousands of teams and riders in multiple classes. Are you all saying that they have got away with it for over 60 years and so every single win and championship won is suspect? Bradley will be asked the same thing by the FIM. Where is his proof. He will end up apologizing.

I agree. Mr Smith has better put up or shut up. If he has any evidence of cheating he should produce it to the FIM.

IMO he has brought the whole Moto2 paddock into disrepute and if he cannot produce proof should be sanctioned by Dorna and FIM.

Cheating is just a part of life.

It does not matter how many rules are in place to prevent it. When money is offered, or big corporations use intimidation, rules get ignored.

I think much like Pedrosa when Marquez starts racing in motoGP we should see the true talent.

That moto2 bike did fly out of the corners and was the quickest down the straights...

Anyone who dissagrees with that one is probably a one eyed supporter.

I think Smith has exercised his right to free speech.

Do you have a problem with citzens doing this?

Or would you prefer total cencorship? Because that is what you are proposing.

It is a fairly open secret that Pol Esp has a pre-signed deal for 2014 with a certain Fausto Gresini...
