dear mr smith,
i sincerely hope that you prove me wrong, for i believe you are not yet made for the gp. atleast you should have won the moto 2. your seat should have gone to ben spies for all i care,
you really need to pull up your socks and be as impressive as Bradl in the last season, if not better.

Did you guys only tune in for the Moto GP race? look at Moto 2, last season Smith was mixing it with the likes of Reading, where did Kent (who's a proven race winner come on the Mistral? 18th and his team mate crashed out.) Herve knows Smith and what he's capable of. If there where more deserving people then why where they not offered a contract? Dovi spat his dummy, Spies, seems more and more like a flash in the pan and Hayden is clinging on to the only place that will have him.

Lets see Darkwaknight...American's have won 15 MotoGP championships with 6 different riders since 1978, the last being in 2006. The Brits have won Zero. It's because you field racers like Bradley Smith. He's a waste of a bike. He'll do his time at Tech 3 and then end up in BSB...where he'll have a chance.

At least Cal has the speed...he may crash too often..but I respect his ability and drive.Cal belongs in MotoGP, Bradley Smith doesn't...he'll be in the back with Karel Abraham...where he belongs.

Also if Jorge and Vale had difficulty with COTA whats is Bradley going to do??

Top 10...I hope that Tech3 included that in a clause in their contract with him. I never could see what justified him earning a MotoGP seat and a seat with Tech3 at that! I would much rather see Redding on a Tech3 M1. I have nothing against Smith, but he has never impressed, he just doesn't have that x-factor like the others, or like his team mate for example..

Aleix Espargaro did his season on CRT and proved to be very talented. He should of being offered a motogp ride, and give Bradley a CRT.
A race where M1's finish 1st, 2nd and 5th (was fighting for podium) and then the last M1 is hoping to break into top 10. It just cries out that we could of had 6+ bikes fight for podium places.

Not getting into a childish nationalistic argument but there is the possibility that he'll do as well if not better than Hayden, Spies and Edwards, you just never know, thats the exciting thing about racing.

H8R, a sellective use of dates, and you're not wrong but look at all time totals, USA 17 championships, Germany 18 Spain 38 UK 44 and Italy 75. Theoretically with the size of population you should be miles ahead in those stakes.
