Shame Bradley could not have got it together a little earlier, he was hauling Iannone in during the last couple of laps. Cal had this problem but no other Yam rider suffers with it!

Bradley, you're going to have to get that sorted out quickly. You have the bike, and despite your detractors, you have the talent. The next few races are time to get total focus on results. This result was good, but not good enough.

The way things are panning out in Moto2, Rabat will be looking for a satellite MotoGP ride for next year in the next couple of months. The only way to protect your position is to deliver results.

Riders never read posts from people who don´t race at the top levels or people who are not part of the teams or admin staff etc.

I post to send a message to the sales and marketing people who do skim over comments relevant to their products (riders) and because I enjoy putting in my two cents worth.

Tech3 ? Dump this guy and either take on Scott Redding or another Spaniard. Hell even taking on De Puniet is better than this. At least he is French and has the ability to podium more in between dropping it all the other times.

Swiss Judge - Different machines to last year - The Cal Crutchlow comment is irrelevant. Scott Redding hardly setting the world on fire is he ? I agree that a Frenchman should be onboard - I would go for Jules Cluzel personally. Meanwhile Smith is doing just about enough in my opinion. Dont forget everyone was saying that Espargaro would wipe the floor with him. He hasnt.

So after failing to deliver on any of the things he yapped about on the weekend, does he hang his head in shame ... NO, he'll just yap some more!

If he was half as talented at riding the bike as he is at talking cr@p, he might actually deserve to be in MotoGP.

& the school mates fan club of his on here ... you realise how silly you look when you come on here and post about how well he's doing, when everyone can see he clearly isn't.
SO much talk from you guys, but still no results to back it up after a year and a half on top machinery.

He complains about fuel affecting his handling and if he were to get the same amount as the factory riders he will complain that to be unfair also. I suppose in every form of racing there has to be mediocre racers to fill up track space, not everyone can be battling for top position.
