I agree, if not already. I had him tipped to do good things this year, but never expected so much so soon. Was also good to see Scott have a good run through the pack, shame as last year the marc vds team seem to only get going with the bike in the second half of the season.

It's close to contract time, so Scott Redding starts performing. Just like hi did last year. Nowhere in the first half, but when places for next year are about to be decided, he shows up.

Oh wait......this theory only counts for Toni Elias.

Pity that Smith overcooked the first turn, (easily done at turn 1, particularly at the start), as he had good race pace until he fell off trying too hard to make up lost ground. Better luck next time. Glad to see Redding picked up the baton for the UK and got a better result than of late. Pleased to hear he's taking his heat acclimatisation training seriously too. I hope he can turn things around with a few better results leading to more confidence and vice versa. 3000 euros is a very harsh penalty for a low paid Moto2 rider, particularly as Marquez's behaviour on track was downright dangerous. Marquez is a great talent, but he's made some bad moves this year too, particularly taking out Redding at Estoril when he was running in 7th with the chance of a podium, in what was a very avoidable accident. I suppose you still have to make some allowance for youthful exuberance and inexperience though.

If you dont already know. Colin Edwards is a Yamaha employee...i.e. He is not a floater like the others. He stays until he is told he can leave. Very loyal. Like the US Marines.

Kind regards..

Happier news, Marquez's sponsor is about to go bust along with a number of other spanish banks !

Might keep the number of halfwitted trolls on here down.
