Smith finished 2nd in 2009 and then 4th in 2010. But still looking back at his 125cc days, he spent 5 years on both factory Honda's and Aprilia's and won only 3 racers in that time span, which isn't particularly impressive. Interestingly in 125cc he was a better qualifier than a racer, but in Moto2 his strengths and weaknesses switched places and he became a better racer than qualifier. He is a solid rider, but isn't as talented or as outright quick as some other riders. Still if he managed to finish the championship in the top six at the end of the year it would be a excellent result for him, although i don't see that happening.......

TBH, everything above is bolloc's until the chequered flag waves.
Brad Smith is a decent if not un equivocal individual.
Personally, I think there are faster out f the box riders, however, and here is the thing. Perhaps Herve saw the change between year 1 and 2. That made him decide, hmm perhaps we give the ginger fella a year then let him loose. maybe just maybe he see's what I cant.........
