Im sorry but BS does not deserve this ride...and every motogp fans knows this...the tech 3 can do so much better than this....

Every week he says Im learning blah blah...The results arent changing..its getting even worst...The Yamahas are losing so much points bcoz of this..
The gap of the bike's potential and his talent is far too wide..
It baffles me why Yamaha hired him....I heard its bcoz of his father or something.... Im sorry Bradley..FACT..

@ strex

Heck no...I like Bradley as a character and he talk sense...its just that there are more talented peaple deserving of his seat..

The problem is he is not fast enough..he doenst have the raw talent to nurture...I will understand if he crashes while in 3rd or 4th trying to compete...but he crashes while in 8th 9th or something and even if he finishes a race its always 8, 9 or 6 when someone crashes ....and to top it all he says he's happy with his development..!!!

Having said all these I think he can be a good mid pack rider...

It would be a misnomer to call an unsuccessful and mediocle rider with bleak future as 'next Aoyama'. Although Aoyama failed to succeed in the premior class, he had strove to become the world champion and won it by all his own hard work. So, he thouroughly deserved his MotoGP ride. There's a huge difference between 'World Champion' and 'No One who proved Nothing'.

I feel sorry for people like tommy hill who are naturally gifted (albeit not gp route) but dont get the backing to move up. He beat hopper so must have something. Or e.g. eugene laverty, going the Crutchlow route. I give bs credit he is giving it his all no doubt about it. He'll have a good career like toseland did just not in motogp. Please prove me wrong though.

@Nick23 - This is MOTOGP not tiddlywinks. The fans who pay for this sport are entitled to criticise and praise people in equal measure and the riders have to accept it too. i'm sure BS would rather get criticised riding a prototype bike against 'greats' than earn £6 an hour in a coffee shop like average people from poor backgrounds. Get real.
