Very good to see Bradley is pleased with the way things go. In this race, after 7 Laps, more then eleven seconds back. Laptime already 1m24. So in fact the distance to the podium increases again. On the other hand, Yamaha seems to have problems with tracks which go anti clockwise. Austin, Sachsenring, Laguna and probably also Indy. If I am honest, considering the tracktime experience I have had, I never raced anti clockwise. Why are the american layouts like that? Please Don-R??!

"now looking to qualify in the top six and finish races close to the satellite Honda riders."

Starting to close to the satellite Hondas, from now???? From the midway point of the season??? That's where any Moto2 graduates who is given the chance to race with the M1 would usually start from at the season opener, not after 9 races!!!

Bradley's results so far seem quite comparable with the rookies last year.
I still don't understand why people think he didn't deserve the ride.
Here's looking forward to the next half of the season.
