Its all about learning innit? Only then does the experience come. After that, experience helps but only sometimes and then only a little. A long way to go before he wins a MotoGP title but who am I to say it cant be done? Best of luck Bradley!!!

@HookJohn - That's a common mistake to make...and sadly often made on these boards.
You dont have to be better than someone at something to give an opinion - negative or not. You're not a better politician than anyone in your government so does that mean you can't criticise them?

No one who has criticised Bradley getting this ride is say that THEY should have it instead. They're stating that other riders (in their opinion) deserve it more.

Hope that clears it up.

I don't see what everyone is complaining about. The guy has command of the English language and writes blogs that give us some insight as to what is going on. What is wrong with that? Better than nothing, and if you don't like his blog, why read it? No one is forcing anyone to read anything. As for him deserving the ride, someone with a bit more insight must have felt he deserved it. He qualified pretty well for his first time out. It is a pretty safe bet to say the anyone here complaining about him, couldn't come near to him in any contest of speed on a road racing motorcycle.

Read his blog a couple times, thought to be boring n dry, and too politically correct... ya' he tells you stuff hes allowed too big deal, rather hear from Colin Edwards at least you hear something real and funny.

as for experience, his got 7 years in motogp + his redbull years... so I think has has plenty of it! and only had one great year the rest is mediocre at best.

he is on the best satellite bike on the grid, and should be doing better, ya' Ill give time to acclimate to the 1000cc, but hope he shows us something soon.

we all know why he got the seat (passport) people are lieing to themselves to say it due to his riding skills, and achievements b/c there are better out there... if Havey sees something in this kid... show it soon, or be the next Toseland and see-ya...

"What is wrong with that?"

I thought that too, but i think iv sussed it!

It seems to qualify for an opinion you must be:
A) a top rider who has won something big, like a motogp title for example. (makes sense right?)
B) one of those special crash posters who, like most normal crash posters, knows absolutely squat about racing a bike professionally, yet somehow know more about it than most of the riders who do it, and why wouldn't they..... they watch it on TV of course!

IF however you fall anywhere in the middle of these two extremes, lets say for example you have a bunch of 125cc wins and moto2 podiums, it would appear your opinion is exempt let alone the right to blog!

Scott Redding would have got 6th on this bike.
Give him the ride asap.

I'm all for having a brit in motogp to cheer for but we have the wrong guy.

Scott at least fought with Marquez in Moto2, Smith doesn't know what Marquez moto2 bike looked like.

He gonna go out like Tony Elias did on the Honda when he stunk it u while the other Hondas ran at the front all season. Waste of a good seat, maybe Yamaha can lure Stoner out of retirement with a factory bike partnered with Crutchlow
