Realy good news for bradl i believe he deserves a shot to be with marquez in repsol honda , i still can not undrestand why HRC is keeping pedrosa after almost a decate and he has won nothing he has achieve nothing but accidents injuries and missing tittle shot after tittle shot this is simply unfair .

What save Pedrosa was the expectacion around him, he was to be the rider that would end up with Rossi Legacy.. but never happen!! He was what Marquez is now.. For many years Repsol stay loyal to him and for me its what keep Pedrosa on the Team... Also like many people say Pedrosa is not bad is fast is talente, but all this years he has been the rider that fail when people expect him to perform and Grab chances and thas very bad to is image, is show that the pressre upset him.. If Bradl is with factory support i dont mind to see Pedrosa on the Repsol but i also bealive that Pedrosa is running out of luck now.. For me the only way he keep the flame alive around him is by doing the best 2 round of is live this year

Dani is amazingly quick, that's why they've kept him for so long. Injuries have played a big part, but also there were a few seasons where the Honda simply wasn't a championship winning machine.

It's good that Bradl has kept this ride, he's good but I'm not sure he is good enough to make the step up to the factory team.

Dani is the winningest (cringe!) rider to never have won the w/c, which IS an achievement- you don't hear people saying Sir Stirling achieved nothing do you??!!!! And he may have done had his throttle not stuck open a few years ago. And you boys are also forgetting how he's been the main tester for Honda for x-years and has more to do with how good the HRC package is than most give him credit for. He was a 250 W/C and has finished top 3 in w/c year-on-year. He's done very, very well. Oh and well done Stefan, you deserve the ride :-)

I totally repect all your opinions @shpongled , @samh , @Balance . Alright , dani is fast , he's hugely talented , highly ambitious , ha can win races yes he can but there is a fact in front of all of us : pedrosa hasn't won nothing being fast and skilled is not enough , he had the opportunity of once in a life time and that chance is riding for honda probably the best bike in most of the aspects , exeting corners, braking , entering corners , and despite all of this he hasn't accomplish what he was supposed to accomplish and that be the man and defeating Rossi Lorenzo and Stoner , these three riders throughout the last 5 years have dominated MotoGP while dani was sitting in the back watching them fighting for victories , it doesn't matter if he's fast or he's a misfortune rider , i can't even mention his name beside the three top riders that i've mentioned before because he doesn't belong to that type of champions , his team mate marc93 would might win this year WC for his first ever

Bradl deserves the 1 year extension as he has done well on the HRC supported team. Can't understand the hate on Pedrosa granted he hasn't won a championship but as Shpongled noted above he has won a lot of races, is just about always competitive and has helped develop a great bike that Marquez is benefiting from. His only real issue is that he gets injured a lot which has dampened his championship hopes over the years. Plus he still has a shot of the championship this year. That's why HRC keeps him.

yes dani hasn't won the title but saying he has done nothing but crash is a disservice to him, he has in fact won 24 motogp races and been in the top 3 in 76 races out of 124, its just a pity he gets hurt easily

Good for Stefan.He has put in some solid performance so far,especially when he got those front brakes changed!
He will improve over the next season and a half without any doubt.
