Keep it up Brad, remember this year is your learning year, steady improvement throughout the season is where you need to be. Some nice insight in English of how a gp bike needs to be ridden

Nice work Bradley, just keep improving little by little until you are confident to ride it like an unbroken Stallion like Cal does. It will come and I wish you all the best for 2013!

Good work Bradders, sounds like he has the right sort of approach, be interesting to see what sort of race simulation times he put in, that is what counts.

better watch out Bradley, Jorge was having rear tire issues last year and that bloke cant stand a bike stepping out from the rear. Not too mention the electronics in the wet ... eesh, Yamaha almost lost all four riders in Sepang last year.

Some nice progression from Bradley!

There's still much work to be done though: being equal with the Ducatis isn't really a feat, especially at Sepang where the D16 doesn't go so well. Being ahead of Iannone should be a given considering he's a rookie on the worst satellite package.

I'm interested to see how he does at the Austin test where the slate is clean and the Ducatis are absent.

His time should have been much faster than the Ducs as other yamaha guys especially Cal has been doing much much better than Brad. He doesn't deserve his seat now, he should have stayed in moto2 and proved himself before moving up. Comparing himself with Iannone is a complete joke...
