blimey MrCrapper, you really are a one trick pony, you spend your time repeating the same old statistics, each race that goes by, add another zero to Sir Bradley, and the case of him being an under achiever, simply gets stronger, yet you don't even expect him to win anything or make a major impact, because you're lining him with a bunch of excuses already made.
I'm not even going to answer questions on Lorenzo, Rossi, Stoner or any other MotoGP champion, because we're not talking about them, we're talking about Sir Bradley, so don't try the word association, it's not there.
Let's say Redding has earnt a GP ride, because he can get on the podium, which Sir Bradley can't, and don't come back with the speed crap because it doesn't work. Ianonne is a real racer as is Marquez, what Smith needs to do, is take a leaf out of Espargaro's book, who by the way, unlike Smith, is a fast and talented rider, who is in with a 90% chance of winning the Moto2 title next year, Smith should've stayed in Moto2 with him.
Now MrCrapper if you want anymore lessons, you're going to have to pay privately for them.
