I see DB40 finished 7th yesterday after his first outing on the Honda. Ahead of his team mate and about .8 down on P1.

I am hoping for big things from Darryn this season. It still seems so long to wait.

I'm holding thumbs too.
This year is probably his last chance to make a proper career out of it. He is in a proper team with a pipeline to MotoGP.

I like his attitude and he seems to have matured a little. I always thought he was a little big for those smaller bikes. More hp might  be a great thing for him.

Yeah, this year won't be easy, Moto3 never is.
But I believe it was the better move to stay behind for a seat in a major squad with arguably the best bike.

He is way better off on a #1 team's Moto3 bike, rather than a third team Moto2 bike.  Weak Moto2 teams is where great Moto3 riders go to disappear for ever.  The Petronas team is now arguably the best setup to be in as they are the only team competitive in all three classes.  There are only one other team competing in all three classes and that is the Gresini team who stinks on the Aprilias in MotoGP.  What about KTM you ask?  They do not have a team in Moto2.  The Ajo Racing team uses a Kalex with KTM sponsorship.  So, Darryn going into Petronas was a brilliant move on their part.

Darryn is an excellent rider and like BB33 will shine if on a bike, even a Moto3 bike, if the bike is competitive.  Many have already forgotten how often BB33, then BB41 crashed on the Mahindras and Hondas before he got the factory KTM ride.  A commentator once said about Brad: "If it wasn't for bad luck, this kid would have no luck".
