Last Edited 848 days ago many non CRT bikes are there? Obviously he should qualify within the top 10 especially if his team mate qualifies P2 and finishes 4th while he crashes.....!

EDIT by CRASH.NET - insult removed, avoid personal attacks when posting please

Jules, your post is an example of a person giving an opinion which is based on assumptions and not much else. You're even resorting to calling Bradley silly names, when he's never made himself out to be a 'skate boarding cool dude', ever. What proof do you have about his father bankrolling Tech 3? Please show it to me.

Your post about him having MotoGP technical support in Moto 2 is comedy. Everyone knows that the Tech 3 Mistral had almost zero development for two whole years, against the hoards of Kalex' and Suters, which had developments almost every race. He rode the wheels off that POS, just to make it competative. Tech 3 had no money for developments and only two riders feeding back - one of which, was always much slower. Guess which one...

The fact that you're now resorting to personal insults to me, just marks you out to be childish and ignorant. Just like a lot of the other people who like nothing better than to post personal attacks. I've not done anything to slight you in any way. You wouldn't dare call me a m0ron to my face, but think it's ok to do it hiding behind a keyboard? Dear, oh dear....

I would reply more in depth and make you look foolish, but you do a great job of that all on your own my friend.

i am not a hater and i will never be, i just think that there are a lot faster riders in moto2 than bradly smith., i wish him the best but i think he should talk less and race more he talks like he has won 3WC he is out there to silence critics, bla bla, he should act like a rookie be quiet and learn and try., he should be grateful the chance he has a lot of riders will not have such good bike at his disposal

considering all the dirt and it was his first race, not really something to hit hard about. When he can press the tires and not have to worry about sand and weather he will probably be a bit brighter. He will get used to the bike doing strange things, that only comes with experience.

@dennisskwok, apologies for the uncalled-for use of a bad word...but seriously Brad should qualify within the top 8 and finishes 5 secs after Cal for us to say it's not a waste of a seat.....he needs to benchmark himself with MM and get closer to his times or tail like Cal

Many people are saying MM is the most talented rider to join MotoGP for years. Why should we benchmark Bradly against him? Would it not be fairer and more realistic to benchmark him against the rookie performances of people like Bradl and Cal?

All this negativity and attack on Bradly is really distasteful and pretty poor. As was said earlier, given how successful Poncheral and Tech3 are in MotoGP maybe you should give them the benefit of the doubt that maybe they know more about it than you do and if they beleive in Bradly maybe you should wait longer than 1 race.

EDIT by CRASH.NET - comments abou other posters removed, keep it about the racing please.

@ nick881 stop being such a Richard , i like most don't see Bradly doing much in GPs he in my opinion just doesn't have it and never will.I dont know what you see in him but dont get all bent because we think other riders are more deserving then him.
