Bradley Smith vows to learn from Qatar error

Bradley Smith has vowed to learn from the early mistake that ended his MotoGP debut in Qatar after just five laps. The Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider was pushing to move back inside the top 10 when he lost the front-end of his YZR-M1 machine at Turn 7.

"Smith was never good in Moto 2, there were plenty of other proven people"

He had the deal sewn up long before the 2012 results based on his 7th in the 2011 season when there were only 6 riders above him in the championship... 3 of those 6 have moved up to MotoGP anyway... another 2 finished below him in 2012 leaving only Luthi on that basis as a more qualified rider for the slot.

... and Luthi's nearly 5 years older than Bradders. Almost as old as Crutchlow in fact.

You've been here before - you can't say moderate success in 125 when he was 2nd in Spanish championship, 4th then 2nd in the world championship. That is a very impressive record. Hardly moderate which would be a couple of 10th places.

Moto2, he didn't have a particularly good bike - where are the two Tech3 riders this year, both in testing and the first race. Kent, a winner in Moto3 - he's nowhere (yes I've read he needs more time) and neither is Rossi. I'd have expected Kent up higher than that straight from the begining.

I don't see Smith winning a race but let's give him a few races as I don't believe he is the donkey you think he is
