"I think that if people look at their jobs and they saw that each year they were getting better if they weren't getting promoted or someone else came in from a lower position into their job and had a guarantee of getting better stuff I think that most people would feel the same as me,”

Don't worry, next year you'll understand perfectly well why this "someone else" came from a "lower position". :)

"Pol is just another rider"
Just another rider who has walked straight into a factory contract...

And its about time the moto2 bike was sorted out. Not even Smith has a good word to say about it.

Who is the someone else for you? If i understand Herve Poncharal say that Ben Spies on is first year of Tech 3 was a Factory yamaha rider but had exacly the same material has Colin Edwards, he say the same for POL, POL will be a factory yamaha rider but will have the same spec bike has Bradley smith, he told that Yamaha respect the equal terms on the Team.. But only Cal got a diferente Treatment because this year he have one bike that is preety much a factory machine if he is able to beat the times of factory riders including Lorenzo i guess theres no doubt here, If Cal had one infirior Yamaha and was able to beat Lorenzo times i think that Yamaha would whant Cal riding he factory, thats talente that Yamaha would not waste!! Until 2012 there is only one rider that could had been on the factory Yamaha and was not Cal, was Dovi, but who got that place was Rossi that dont need any presentacions at Yamaha and even with the Ducati in 2012 he finish the year ahed of Cal with Ro

year ahed of Cal with Rossi 6 and Cal 7... So i think that Herve is just saying that If Cal had stay at Tech3 Pol would not get better stuff then him... In the end Cal go to Ducati because he whanted badly to be in one factory no matter who is...

Herve states in the article that Bradley rides the older 2012 spec bike.
Just a question. Would that be the Lorenzo winning bike which finished 1 on 350 points OR the Dovi Tech 3 machine which finished 4 on 218 points.
