Well done Brad!! You are learning on a very tight curve and you keep improving race by race. I can see that you are getting to grips with the tech 3 Yamaha and you are able to push harder and harder!!

I will stick my neck on the line and say that at some point this season you will become the 6th best rider on merit! Time is your friend and your patience and perseverance will prevail!!!!

2 seconds behind Bautista in 7th another very credible performance from Smith with no crashes in the race. Even better to take the two factory Ducati boys on the last lap. If MM was not present I believe more people would show a little more respect to Bradders.

Brad is doing ok, not spectacularly and deserves encouragement and given his chance to shine. However looking at how terrible the Ducatis have been all weekend he could simply not afford to finish behind them. His gap to the front has been closing slowly but steadily race by race... I hope his progression continues as he needs to be consistently ahead of the red bikes and mixing it with the satellite Hondas, anything less is not good enough.

excellent race by smith and beating those ducatis was really special when you think how quick they were way back when casey was on the back of em....and i cant wait to hear about it come blog time and please tell us more about your injury.....

dear brad...

i'm so sorry that your wrist hurt and hence you came ninth...but if i'm not mistaken, a certain bloke with something like 8 screws came fifth, that too within 36 hrs of the accident. now i wonder how he managed to do that and not you???

fact is, you are just taking up a seat. i think you should hand it over to pol or someone more deserving.. look at marc for example!!!!
oh smith, don't think you'll even fill crutchlows shoes .....
forget being a world champion...

Comeon guys atleast now agree that Ducati lose something from other bikes....If u ask a small kid to see this championship it may compare Ducati to a CRT yes their positions are like that.....Ducati is miles far away from other Factory bikes...Tech3 is a unwritten factory bike...comeon bradley...last year cal was also on the same position like you..... might be worse than you...Comeon bradley u put some more effort and get into the front row...All the best broo
