Tech 3 Yamaha crew unchanged for Bradley Smith in 2013

Bradley Smith's challenge to become a competitive force in MotoGP next season will be masterminded by vastly experienced crew chief Guy Coulon. The 21-year-old had expressed interest in moving to Tech 3 Yamaha with his current Moto2 crew chief Tom Jojic, who has previously worked with Team Roberts, Kawasaki and Honda in MotoGP. It has been confirmed though that Coulon, who is...

Sad to see the usual losers slagging off Smith before he has even turned a wheel on the M1.  Maybe best to reserve judgement until he has had a few races! Don't understand the hatred on this site!

Don`t try and understand it!

I think people should wait and see. He might bomb or he might do reasonably well in his first year. Lets wait and see. For Cornball  to say Bradley`s the biggest embarrassment in MotoGP to date says rather more about Cornball than a very successful racer doing his best and making a step up into the big time. 
Cornballs` biggest achievement is of course to type stuff, and then see his words appear on the screen in front of him.  WOW!
Give him a chance ffs. Yes he`s successful. He`s making a good living out of riding bikes. He might end up 8th next year......but so what, he`s not driving bloody great trucks about like me for a pittance. Or in the case of other contributors, lying around on benefits. 
I was too slow and too scared and too skint to race bikes, same as most of you lot. The rest of you who do or did race obviously aren`t/weren`t good enough by a long way. So show some respect please for the achievements of Smith and indeed all the others.
The one good thing is, I don`t suppose any rider would read any of the comments on here. :mad:

smith...if it ain't broke don't fix it...

pornbowl...

well you see i always tend to judge riders by the performance of their team-mates...now take for instance bradley's team mate?  now as we can see smith is well ahead on points and has over the past couple of races shown even more improvement and is beginning to run with redding and co'.

comparativley speaking, i don't think the 600 is anywhere near as good in the Moto2 class, as the1000cc bike that dovi and crutch are riding in motogp.

i personally think that smith will get his head down next year and will be running in the top 6 for sure.  but i do really see smith as an emerging talent, he did well in 125's and now he seems to be getting a grip in the Moto2 class. don't write him off!

100% agree with you on the teamate thing, he hasn't just beaten his teamates last 2 years he has destroyed them.

Cornbowl could of coure point out that his last 2 seasons in 125 his teamates beat him but even here there are extenuating circumstances. Simon was on the top of his game and far more experianced, even then Bradley was all over him like a rash last few races. His last season in the Spanish run, spanish funded aspar team his bike mysteriously developed a season long engine fault that didnt effect his Spanish team mate, of course when the title was up the engine fault just as mysteriously dissapeared.

check out the last race of that season, Bradley won by miles!

now fighting for top six on a bike all his team mates have struggled to score points on, will do all the brits proud next season

There ain't nothing

easier than criticising from the comfort of home.

There's no risk and you don't need any real skills or abilities, but best of all your anonymous so that no one can look at your skill base/achievements or lack of.

Nice to see positve comment like Drzee and Cheekymonkey's

Brad's fast

Brad's a very good rider no question. The sensible thing to do would be to leave adverse comments alone as you have no proof whatsoever of the outcome of the 2013 season. The clever thing to do would be to take a look half way through the season and comment about progress. Prior to that words of encouragement and support are reasonable to offer.

another little moron popped up, that excels in calling people names. My opinion is based on fact, I'm not going into for the umpteenth time with a little twat like you. By your overview, unless somebody's a MotoGP star or multichampion, you're not able to give your own considered view of a riders performance, who do you think you are, a little tiwst and go merchant. Brits deserve to be backed, try reading some of my other posts, they're backed, but not backed to carry a Brit, who is a shit Moto2 rider, can't make a podium the whole season in Moto2, and gifted 2 years on an M1, get real you dipshit.

No hatred involved, far from it, Smith's a disappointment, and has been since he started in 125's, he's had the same chance as everyone else to do good, and I don't consider he has, he's gone backwards from last year and he's not capable of getting a podium in Moto2, so he goes to MotoGP an under achiever/ loser,  and who goes with him, sucessful riders!!!.

More like cheekytwat, 'Sadly' making a good living out of riding bikes, you got that right, he's needs to make the move to racing them. You like to bring other people down to your level, got yourself a little white van jamming up the 3rd lane, you tosser You'd definitely be too slow and to stupid to ride bikes, and I certainly hope that a under achiever like you would ever be loose on the roads in anything other than your little white van, but then again you may well just be one of Eddy's white collar fairy boys
