..you think of Bradley, he's got one of the best deals in the paddock. A whole TWO years on a satellite Ya-macka.
Truth be told, Herve would probably be the first to admit he signed Smith too early but that's history now.
Bradders'll have a year to learn, to try to adapt, same as most rookies. He's a bright boy but has very little experience on big bikes - nothing like Rea or Cal - so the expectation is less. In reality, his championship will be about racking up the miles and staying out of last place prototype spot..maybe battling Iannone.
He knows he's a lucky lad to have that seat and has to justify Poncherals faith in him at some point but, he'll have time.
Be good to see another Englishman, Scott Redding in the class..maybe the UK's Jonny Rea too!
Blimey, we're really stacking and rackin 'em to race in GP. I think we ought to baggsy Chas Davis too..for 2014 with BMW.
He's more Three Lions than puff the dragon anyway..just listen to him talk? Certainly no sheep-shagging yokel from the valleys..
Go Chas..an honoury Englishman if ever I saw one?
