"That's life and what I paid to do."

Is that a typo or is he admitting to being a pay rider?

Really brave ride, but even without the injuries he's finishing regularly behind the CRTs and Ducrapis. No excuse for that. He made the Mistral look better than it was, but he's making the M1 look a lot worse than it is.

The best counter argument his fans have, is that he's faster than anybody on this board. Way to compare apples to apples.

Truth is, he won't last. There's just no place for him in the premier class. We already know he's no alien, and that now seems to be the minimum requirement to win races in GP. Best bet would be to secure a top ride in Moto2 or SBK and challenge for a title. I see no point in making a career out of being winless, ala Edwards.

And before somebody says it, I'm sure Bradley is a lot faster than me on a motorcycle. Thanks.

@ DARKWAKNIGHT

Another 4-5 years and he will be fighting for a podium.

Smiths last podium was 3 years ago. So a possible podium every 7-8 years? Which owner/sponser is going to stick solid with that type of a performance?

YOU DON'T DESERVE THAT SEAT. ALL THESE MARKETING BUILDUPS that tries to enhance your image as a deserving rider sucks. Go to BSB or WSBK, there you might even finish 6th on a good day.

Whatever his ultimate potential, that must have been a hard race with a cracked scaphoid, general bruising and battering and a tendon-less and raw finger. No doubting his determination, that's for sure.
