name calling, get real. This has turned into a major post again, because I think Smith an under achiever, oh sorry I'd better make that Sir Bradley. For the one millionth time, I have got NOTHING AGAINST Bradley, other than he is an under achiever.
So let's look at what you've got to say, 'talented and deserves a ride' - talent, that would be the front 3 runners in Moto2, and all the ones that have won titles, Smith has won nothing, a few podiums in 125's with all the help and schooling, 2 years in Moto2, this year he's going backwards, this is before he steps into the premier class, and he cannot secure one podium.
Yamaha expected Smith to have at least 3-4 wins, plus top 5 finishes, what has he done, sweet fa, Herve would dump him tomorrow if he could, but it was too late, he's locked into a 2 year deal, Sir Bradley doesn't have to do anything but turn up on the grid, there can't be anybody that posts on here that thinks he can take a win in Moto2, unless half the grid don't finish, and I don't think he is capable of getting on the podium at all, yet Scott has done it twice, because he's got guts and he's a racer. Can you seriously tell me that Sir Bradley is going to win a race the rest of the season in Moto2, he won't, and he won't get a podium, and the next two years in MotoGP he'll no wins, and I fear no podiums. They're expecting more from Cal next year, so where do think Sir Bradley is going to be, the only place he's going to podium is if he takes a pillion on the back of Cal, because Sir Braley is signed, sealed and delivered to MotoGP for 2 years whatever, and in my opinion he hasn't earnt it.
