Scott has got to be one of the riders with the greatest potential in Moto2. It's good to see him on a long contract with MotoGP options, but he will have to mature as regards managing a whole race distance, tyre choice and bike setup. But he's young enough to learn alot and be a phenomenon, and the way he has steadily improved and oversome problems this season speaks well for the future. I'm still hoping for a win this season.

This, this and more of this...

Look at the progress Redding has made compared to Smith javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':-o') -
Sadly Smith is no longer the British rising star and this will only be more evident if Smith is offered a moto2 ride next year? - Or is it to be a 6th year in 125's still hoping for that championship...

Little bit off topic, but surely I'm not the only one who thinks that Moto 2 is still too far away from MotoGP- even taking into account the 2012 regs with semi production engines?

Scott has gone from 80kg & 60bhp, to 140kg & 125bhp, but the next step is 155kg & 220bhp!

It's a huge jump.

I wish Scott the best of luck but can't help feeling sorry for the new breed of Moto 2 rider.
Toni Elias moans that Moto 2 is too slow, and when you look at the stats, I guess it is?

Bet he'd be great in WSS though?!!!!

Guess he's not interested in all the "help me i'm a noob" electronic riding aides in MotoGP and wants two more years of machine, wrist, b u m, big cahonas flat out Moto2 action.
Good on ya Scott.
