@Kba agree with some of what you say. Rea is totally overrated. His own opinion of himself is inflated thats for sure.
Barbera - think you are being unfair. He has often been the quickest Ducati out there (Getting a tow or otherwise)

Redding hasnt actually won anything yet. Its a bit "next time, or could have, or the bikes too small etc" Having said that I think he would go better in Moto GP or perhaps WSBK might be a wiser choice to start with.

I wonder who provided the time (and how accurate it is). Iaonne's time?

Anyone know who's bike he was on? And 127 laps on whose engine?

Can't wait to see 'Elbowz 2' in MotoGP. Just look at the pictures going around with his elbow on the ground, and on the track not the raised rumble strips.

tomcol - "Redding hasnt actually won anything yet."

If you're referring to championships then you are correct but he will be in the record books for all time as the youngest GP winner ever. No way that can be beaten unless the rules are changed to allow 15 year olds again.
So yes, he's won something.

i do also agree that redding and crutchlow will be able to capitalise on their aggressive riding style to suit the ducati , and this would suit the ducati they maybe bring out the best in the monstrous ducati , and plus cant beat a couple of brits in the premier class :D

Tech3 bikes this year may not have been so different from the factory bikes, but that is greatly due to the fact that this year is the first year of the 1000cc formula. Things are gonna be very different in the next year, and I think that's why Dovi wants a seat at factory team so badly ... And the same reasoning goes to Vale and Cal.

thats a key point Noriben
Just look how far ahead in time the factory bikes were at Laguna, with its very short lap time.

The factory Honda and Yams will continue to advance and leave the satellite bikes behind.

People talk about a two tier championship with the inclusion of CRTs but actually its 3 tiers. Factory, Satellite and CRTs.

Thats all well and good but there just isnt enough bikes on the grid for 3 tiers!!!

Go Scott. Go Bradders. Go Cal.....but alas I cant see all three in MGP in 2013

I have been telling anybody who will listen that Redding is the guy for Ducati, his comment 'I just kept going at it' is exactly what Ducati need, he will probably crash the thing to oblivion in year one but just stand back and light the blue touch paper, he can carry on where Stoner left off on the Red Devil! Great Job Scott
