Going to neeed a drastic change, but if the last few meetings are anything to go by this team and rider seem to be able to find a couple of seconds by qualifying. A bit strange at this circuit given they tested there. Perhaps it really was an experimental day on old tyres.

This bike should be under Aleix Espagaro. Then Cal too would look mediocre. Bradley is not a premier class rider and will never even get a podium. I'm ready to wager 250 quid on him never getting a rostrum.

In this race 10th (last of the motogp bikes less Hernandez), and if lucky maybe 9th.

Even though Bradley is now comfortably beating Aleix despite Aleix having more than 2 years additional experience on the big bikes (and that CRT is now a damn quick bike, and probably not that far behind the T3 second bike, mainly 2 years old now)? Even though Aleix got a GP ride with a record in the lower tiers that was very poor compared to Bradley's? These Espargaro boys do get a lot of praise without actually having won anything, although Aleix has started to really prove himself this year.

Is last of the prototypes so bad given he is a Rookie, and those ahead of him are vastly more experienced?

Actually since the first 5 races of the year when the Dukes beat him he has mainly beaten the Dukes.

He may never get a podium. Most who enter MotoGP don't either, in fact the same can be said of any class of racing. It would be a dull spectacle if the grid only ever had riders on it that were capable of getting on the podium.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA @ SmokingMoreThanHaddock

Do you actually believe those excuses?
You blinkered fanboys have now clutched at the absolute bottom of the excuse barrel ... Claiming Espargaro's CRT is similar to a Tech3 Yamaha that's capable of podiums ... BWAAAHAHAHA

What happened to all that bleating earlier in the year that we need to wait til later in the season to see him further up the time sheets?
Still waiting we are.
Maybe time to save face, admit you were wrong?

Bradley should consider the ultimate 'drastic change' ... like getting a job that doesn't require him to ride a bike!
Well, ride one fast at least ... he could MAYBE still deliver pizza.
