The reigning Moto2 champion has impressed the paddock with his consistency and how he has found gradual improvement throughout the campaign thus far. When asked for his thoughts on his rookie campaign the German said:
“We can be happy, we are improving every time,” commented Bradl. “So far we have been not doing so much mistakes, which is important for the first season, I think, to learn as much as I can. And, yeah, we were very close to the podium in Mugello, which I could enjoy a lot.
“The last race in Laguna was not really easy for me because learning the track and so on. But, yeah, I think all the team and we can be happy. And hopefully we can do the next step, especially to the first three guys there. They’re still a little bit too fast for us.”
To make the transition from an impressive rookie to a challenger to the likes of Jorge Lorenzo and Casey Stoner will see Bradl have to raise his game still further with the 23 year old admitting as much:
“They are doing especially in the race every single lap they are quite close to the limit and so precise. This is the biggest difference to what I know from Moto2. Sure the competition is high, but these guys pushing themselves so fast and so hard. Yeah, this is what I still need to improve, but I think I’m on a good way to do that.”
