@ Stuey99

if you had the money like him,, m sure you wouldn't be thinking of other deserving riders... his dad not only owns the team so that he can ride,,but he owns the brno circuit as well...instead of being jealous...i'd say he is lucky,,, what he lacks for talent he makes it up with his moolah!!!

Waxwing the privateer bike was an RS, it wouldn't be battered his teams bike preparation visually is impecable.
Karel is a very deserving rider, works hard and as many say you don't find your limits without crashing, he has won a GP not easy.
He admits himself that he just cannot get the Aprilia right, he says there is nothing wrong with the bike but he has to adapt, still trying to ride the bike like the Ducati and fire it out the corners but it doesn't work.
Remember if it wasn't for running inot the back of Cruthlow at Valencia he would have beaten Cal to the rookie of the year title. In his first season on an inferior bike regularly was up their with Rossi.
I'm sure if many of you had the money and your son was an accepted rider, (he has a super licence) you would put someone else on the bike. Does anyone think Haslam would have got the Shell ride without his dad after his appalling year in 125? On an Italjet (Engines Engineering) yes but he never improved.

How quickly you all forget. Do you not remember in 2011 when Karel Abraham was going up against Cal Crutchlow for rookie of the year?

My opinion is that all motogp riders deserve to be there. They just don't all have the right machinery. Like Colin Edwards went from a 5th in the championship in '09 to being nowhere on the CRT. Same with Randy DePuniet. All these guys are great riders, they are just racing in a league of weaker machinery.

love your comment, shows that you are still pi$$ed off he gave your goat a canning on less than perfect machinery yet when they swapped rides your goat was busy fighting Karel off and couldn't even get close to him

he did alright on the satellite ducati, would be interesting to see what he can do on a bike thats close to the Honda, , would be worth it just to see him on a bike which is close to the bikes at the top.

Hes been out and out most of this year, though, kind of a Ben Spies year for him, hes gonna need to stay clean and healthy for the rest of the year and just take small steps so hes ready to go next year I think.
