It pains me to say it as a Brit but this guy is lightyears ahead of Bradders and Redding. NO COMPARISON! END OF. With Spanish backing the kid is only going to get the best equipment, which is why Rossi was so successful. I'll have you a bet of 50p that this kid is going to dominate MotoGP, although the field is admittedly stronger than when Rossi burst onto the scene.
