The best he can do is to get amongst the Ducati boys,I got Marquez fastest but he's got the equipment to do it,Bradley on the other hand has the Teck3 b bike so I gonna give him 8th to 11th in testing, but has the season goes on he'll improve loads.

Tbh I reckon Bradders should be more wary of the CRTs. The bike is good enough to beat them easily, but is Bradley Smith? Not sure he's ready for the big leagues yet. And in all honesty, I'm not sure he's actually good enough.

These amazing armchair racers are at it again. If all these expert racers were in the sport there would be no room for any, one but a Brit! Give him the chance he has earned, people much closer to the game obviously think he is worth it.

Bradley, much like his new teammate, didn't do a whole lot to earn this ride. I am however, hoping he proves he belongs there much like his teammate has.

Testing won't prove that, so if he does flounder in testing try not to get your panties in a bunch. Race day is what matters, always has, always will.

I wish him all the best and he has got the attitude right. Reminds of when Stoner stepped up and was asked how he felt about racing the likes of Rossi.
He quipped...'he's just another bloke on a bike on race day'.
Smith is also no midget. He had no chance in Moto2 with the Aspar in house effort.
He sure as hell has a chance now with the M1.
A 2013 season similar to Stoner's 2006 season is a good yardstick. Watch this space over the next 6 months rather than over the space of the pre-season tests.
