Sorry Brad, I'm a patriotic British racing fan (like most who will disagree with this statement), but this isnt good enough, you practically have a factory Yam underneath you, more or less, and your in Q1 with the CRT's. Marquez took 2 seconds off Casey Stoner today -- how does that feel?

I'm angry that Redding has to make do with a production racer next year, imagine what he'd do on the Tech 3 Yam.

Do me a favour Brad and ram these words down my throat. Start tomorrow.

Stop looking at Marquez's time as a comparison, Brad was only 3/10ths off Pedrosa and Rossi. For a rookie on certainly not a factory Yamaha that is a good result. Pedrosa being 1second slower than his rookie team mate is much more of an issue of should he be on the bike. Factory Honda since 2006, never won a championship, Stoner joins and wins it, now Marquez looks like doing the same.

Marquez is a freak of nature, we know Bradley is not on his level even when they were 125 team mates.

I was very much against bradley at the beginning but hes doing a good job. Its not easy at this level.
The kids got talent its just hes racing against super talent.

Give him a season at least to keep improving.
