MotoGP » Smith: We're close to being top satellite bike

tommytrojan1: I've never quite understood the anti- Smith comments. If the Tech3 boss deems it fit to give him the ride, I'm sure he knows a hell of a lot more about his rider (and potential) than any of us. And in any case, no one is feeling more pressure to perform than Bradley himself.
It should be reminded that it was a "single year contract" what that immensely "knowledgeable" team boss had granted to Smith, and which is indicative of his dissatisfaction with the performance of Smith in the last two years. In other words, Herve has finally given an ultimatum to Smith. Brad must beat his teammate at least, let alone Bradle who's riding a lesser open bike. And you can't underestimate neither of them - they are both world champions after all.

MotoGP » Smith: I'm closer to the front than before

SuperSick58: He might be closer to the front but his teammate is still faster........he must be utilizing his "smart, methodical" approach again.... he'll finish 9th - 11th in the Championship.
9th-11th? I'm afraid your deduction is still rather generous and optimistic. The circumrtances have changed greatly, and there are a lot more competitive bikes this year. Bradley has been exploiting the strange situation in which there were depleted numbers of competitive bikes ever since he moved up to the MotoGP class. Mearly collecting a single point in each race will not be an easy task for him this year once the GP has gone back to Europe, until which time the adjustment of the completely new "real prototype" of the front guys will be progressed and those who switched their bikes or class will be further acquainted with their new equipment. Pol seems to be ready to use his advantages of riding a "customer prototype" for consecutive seasons fully, ming

MotoGP » Suzuki 20th after Saturday ‘issues’

It is true that Suzuki lacks its top speed to its counterparts, but we would never know the true potential of the new Suzuki until Aleix and Marverick try on this machine on Monday. It's DePuniet who's riding it now, and he is the one who has failed to overwhelm even the Japanese national series contenders in his last outing at Suzuka 8 hrs. No offense to DePuniet, but he's just not good enough to gauge the true potential of the new bike.

MotoGP » Pol Espargaro 'expects to be stronger in race'

The seven point deficit is certainly enormous for Bradley to overcome, so if Pol stays upright in the race it is certain that he can secure the 6th rank easily. Having said that, I'd like to see him push as hard as he can even if it would cost him to lose his championship ranking to his brother or his teammate. He has already proven that he is the No.1 in the team in his rookie year, and even if he loses to Bradley in terms his championship points, there are few who believes Bradley is a better rider than Pol. After all this is the 'learning year' for him so challenging for the podium, which he has missed out on this season, will be much more beneficial for next year. Go Pol, keep pushing!

MotoGP » Relief for Bradl with fourth in Sepang

The rank he's placed right now tells us how important it is to be consistent throughout the season and the importance of minimizing the number of DNFs. Bradl has finished the race this season in higher than 5th on five occasions, 9 occasions higher than 7th, which is much better than what Pol and Smith of Tech3 have achieved. Yet he's ranked in a lowly 9th (10th before Sepang). I hope his decision to switch to the open Yamaha will bring good fortunes for him.
