Seems expectations are high for Pol with Yamaha then.

No doubt the lad is fast and determined, but he's not iron-clad tough all the time and shows some fragility (though to be fair he's rallied well after a bad patch in M2 this season).

Still, there's got to be a lot of pressure to do well coming with that Yamaha contract.

Apart from all the pressure just to keep his ride for 2015, you can bet that Bradley just got ALL the motivation he'll ever need to do well and beat Pol next to him in the garage in 2014. BS has raced Pol when BS had the inferior Mistral, so I reckon Brad will feel he has the chance to beat PE on the same kit.

Now THAT really would send a LOT of Trolls scuttling back under bridges haha!

Steveo, rumours on twitter is that Ezpeleta is furious with Yamaha for the signing. But at the end of the day if Spanish riders are fastest what do people expect? Nobody complains about Brits filling WSB (there are currently more filling less seats) and still not winning it, nor the days of Brits filling GP's or the days of the Yanks.
