Overpromoted and underachment has followed Smith throughout his career. Let's face it Moto 2 was a disaster, and getting beaten by CRT bikes when you are on a Tech 3 Yamaha must be embarrasing. Smith is destined to be grid filler I'm afraid. He will be riding a CRT bike in 2 years, wait and see.Hey Crash! How about a Scott Redding blog instead..... that would be far more interesting.

i dunno why ppl like to put down world class riders. do u think u can do better than those guys? not everybody can be the race winner.
whatever reason BS got the contract or any other rider is achievement, envy is a very bad quality.
at least he spend the time to write the blog, i'd to read some more inside stuff from the garage, not what all know by the news

I always feel so let down when I read Bradley's fantastic blog and then click comments...there are some idiots on here. Sure he's no Marquez but in the end there are 4 maybe 5 people on the grid this year that can win races. The rest must learn and build their skills. In the end he's got the seat, if he's got it he deserves it, end of. Herve saw something in him he liked and he didn't see it in Pol Espagaro or anyone else. I imagine it's more than just being able to go fast too. He's a very very smart kid, he always knows exactly why he crashed or couldn't quite push it hard enough. In the end he'll be a contender, just my 2c

@Ivor Bueb
yeah rossi was 11th place in 3rd races. but in the end of season, he was 2nd place in championship title.
and when rossi first race in motogp class, he got faster lap in the race, but unfortunately, he was crash.

and I hope to see Smith improve too, because if not he's just waste of a good bike and many riders who want to ride it.

Perhaps your right! Maybe everyone should get a ride in MotoGP, then prove they are worth it.
I thought you were supposed to get rewarded the Proto seats for an achievement in the prior class. Three podiums seems a little weak for rewarding. If we are trying to say the reward was for 125, Shouldnt he have shown everyone he was badass in 250 before getting a proto?
Just seems a little weak!
I have always seen potential in Crutchlow, I root for him weekly. So there is your underdog and Britt in one rider.
And it has nothing to do with hate! Just opinion! Its nice he takes the time to write a blog, so kudos there too. Nice guy doesn't equal great rider! Just make him a nice guy!
It will be hard for any rookie to shine this year, they will all be shadows to Marquez!

@chaind
yes this is an open forum, and tho I agree with you in that everybody has a right to their opinion, seems that their is a lot of bitter people harboring a lot of hate and they are here on crash venting it on whomever for what ever reason, seems to me to a waist of energy and more over just unhealthy...

another surprize is most people usually pull for the underdog, but in Smith case, it seems appent that people are just bitter, maybe they just dont like the brits,or maybe its that they wanted Espargaro, or Iannone or ??? on a better bike, the real prob is there just aint enough good seats to go around. but haters will hate sad for them but thats life...

Very well said Ivor bueb! But I think like mine it all falls on deaf ears mate!! Like when smith came from last to second place in his rookie moto 2 season some h8r on here will still say that was luck or had it been anyone else they would have won blah,blah blah!! Fact is he is there on a 2 year deal and all negative posts as much as they hate it have no option but to accept. I am sure given time he will improve and soon!

Honestly if Rossi (with all his talent) gets negative comments on crash.net. You have to really expect negative comments about Smith with about 1/8 the talent, and no where near the charisma!
This is an open forum! People can say what they want!
I personally really like to read what people think, doesn't mean I have to agree! As others have said, I would like to hear from riders who are doing something on the track. Once again we all have our own thoughts!
