Bradley had a strong weekend overall. Crashes happen and he will learn from it.Next race should try for a top ten, but from mid season it would be good to target top eight. Lets not compare to MM last night just showed that MM is an exceptional talent.

Can't believe they hope for "top 10" results.

He's on a freakin M1???

Gotta be tough for Tech3 sponsors.
Big waste of dollars that should be spent on someone that has won in MotoGP or at least Moto2.

Dovi should've been kept.

It amazes me he difference between Bradley and a certain number 93. On wants to learn more, the other wants to win!
Where is the ambition?
Is this a result of the taking part rather than winning ethos, prizes for all wherever you finish.
Maybe this is why we do not have GP winners anymore.......!

Looks like the haters have their new target.

They wantwede to kep Dovi, he left because he wanted the plaudits of being a factory rider. To those who said that Smith is undeserving of the ride, Bradl crashed out too and he's had a year on those tyres and carbon brakes, does that make him un deserving of his ride too?
True, you cant compare him to maques, but you can to Ianone and to a degree Bradl and Bautista, If he learns from this, and he will. I reccon he'll be all over the latter within a few races. dispite the early bath, he's shown promice this weekiend.

@bazx7r- Bradl has at least accomplished something in his career, Smith hasn't. Smith has been handed a golden opportunity and he is not deserving of that ride. There are many more talented riders who should have been considered.

i agree with neburner46. Any of you smith fans carry on dreaming..A top 10 finish is no good that just makes him last of the gp bikes the rest are CRT . If their was 23 gp bikes he would be 23rd waist of a ride.Its not about learning to ride a fast bike.. You need the arrrrrgh to win like young scott redding. its not a school ..joke .

Haters gonna hate.. I bet most are American, but as they never register and just post bile never know. When Is Crash going to Stop unregistered posts OR at least validate the Email address and post it under the post, at least then if they wanted to be genuine we could al least see how many alias people post under!! would not be suprised if the many is about 4 people!!
Bradley will do right, he is not the pure talent that MM is but then again this is a guy that has had the rules bent nah broken around him (and the reason they brought in limited testing in Moto 2 as he had done about half a seasons riding before his first season started). And laugh at the Learning comment.. if Bradley had said he aims for Podiums the haters would be "Yeah right. Stay on it first, arrogant" and when he tries to be humble he is not aiming high enough. That team has both sides of this and yet between then neither is right!!! So transparent hatred.. gotta laugh at sado's who cannot type most of the time let
