Honda expecting stronger Stefan Bradl in 2014

Honda is expecting German rider Stefan Bradl to close the gap to dominant Spanish trio Marc Marquez, Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa in his third MotoGP campaign this year. The former Moto2 world champion is yet to establish himself as a consistent podium threat in his spell with Lucio Cecchinello’s LCR Honda squad. His solitary premier class podium came during last July’s...

 on the podium you need a full factory effort under you, not a satallite bike.

Stefan

 NEEDS to be stronger in 2014, he is running out of chances fast. He only held onto his seat by the skin of his teeth. It is a shame he hasn't been able to show more of what he can do.

Yep the acid is on Stefan this year

Suppo's words are spot on.

That thing is as good as full factory and easily worthy of the podium. It just needs to be ridden to its potential, which Stefan hasn't yet been able to exploit.

He hit the ground running pretty well in 2012, but has not really progressed much since. I was hoping for more from Bradl, but sadly it's looking unlikely. Still, he should be in the thick of that battle for fourth again if he can find a little bit of consistency.

Not so good

 Even though its a factory bike I still dont think its as good as Mark or Dannys bikes. To  me Repsol is the number one works team with the most money and best set up. So Stefan is always going to stuggle against them

That thing is supposed to be a full factory bike.

To be honest, he's kind of up against it anyway. With Rossi looking like he's back on form, the rest of the grid is essentially racing for 5th place. And the older Asparagus is looking pretty good for that.

Too many World Champions in the same class!

his best result came

When his arse was on the line and just in time to save his ride, and it did just that, I'm not expecting much better this season as others have said it's going to be harder this season and it sounds like Livio is on his case already
