Smith: Moto2 should really suit me

“It was amazing, really something very, very special,” the Oxfordshire-born teenager enthused. “It's obviously something that I can't wait to start doing next year and something that I wish I would have done at the end of last year. It's just so much fun, something completely different and something completely new!

“[In terms of comparisons with 125cc] it's got two wheels, a throttle and it goes pretty fast! At the end of the day, it is completely different. Luckily for me, my riding style is not going to really have to change. I need to do as many laps as possible, but the good thing is I've got a lot more space and a lot more power to play with.

“It's all going to be back to technicality, which I believe I'm one of the better riders at. It's definitely a very technical class, a really difficult class and something that's going to take a lot of hard work next season – but I also think it's something that's going to really suit me.”

Little harsh Calvin! Bradley has proved to be a front runner and as he acknowledges the bike hasn't been all there this year. He certainly got my respect the way he triumphed in Mugello 2009. I hope he adapts to the package well in 2011. Though I think there will be more cheers for his fellow countrymen Scott Redding in 2011, has the benefit of this years experience on the 600cc bike & will start the season as a title contender, he has certainly delivered & I believe is destined for MotoGP! Roll on 2011
