This must be so demoralising for Scott as he is normally up there battling for the podium! It was pretty obvious in Quatar that something was wrong.To find nothing has changed in Jerez means serious work has to be done if Scott stands any chance of riding the way we know he can!! I hope the bike can be sorted for the next round as Scott is one of the best things in Moto2.

You can see why, from Bartholemys reactions, Kawasaki were always at the back of the field. Perhaps a team principal should be using his 'expertise' to help resolve the situation rather than making bold demands.

What a ridiculous set of statements by Bartholemy. He wasn't complaining at the back end of last season when Redding was getting his team plenty of exposure during the race coverage.

Maybe it's easier to blame the riders than blame Suter, who're apparently giving more support to some teams than others...

I think Bartholemy should have kept these comments private within the team. Making this public only adds unecessary pressure to the team and riders who already know they needs to turn things around.

Last season for Redding from Qatar to Valencia:

23rd, 16th, 11th, 21st, 4th, 11th, DNF,DNF, 22nd, 3rd, DNF, 8th, 5th, DNF, 2nd, 4th, and a 5th.

His team were so happy in pre-season about the new bike and how Scott was riding, even shouting out how he was breaking the lap record in Jerez a month earlier.

Bartholemy needs to keep pressure on the team, with 1 year already passed they should be deep into the points.

There was some discussion during the Eurosport commentary about the team switching to a different make of bike if they don't get better support.

Whatever the problem or problems the results so far this season have been surprsingly poor.

I think marcez is on same chassis and look at the problems he is having. Go over to the ktech chassis like bradley. Im sure his team will sell a few off. Such a shame as scott was going so well last year.
