make absolutely no mistake,if scott gets a good ride in moto gp he will make as big an impact as marquez has done this year.
his machine control is fantastic and like marquez he rides miles ahead of the bike.
7 kilos is equivalent to 4 bhp.so the weight deficit he has suffered most of his career makes what he has acheived so far even more impressive.
once in moto gp he will have a surfeit of power,and his size and weight will give him the ability to increase traction in many situations.
this lad is the real deal,and if cal doesnt manage it this year scott will be the first uk rider to win a moto gp race .

“The thing is I've beaten all these guys at one point in my career”

I think it is always such a lame excuse, it only proves they progressed up the classes faster than you.
He's a great rider, but shouldn't talk this much if you ask me.

Scott is the next big thing.....despite his size.....his achievements this year have been excellent unlike a certain GOAT who's time is definitely up - give the bike to Scott!

Best of all he's not Spanish!

Must admit wasnt a fan until the weight limit has helped level the playing feild. This season hes riding like a champ espagaro isnt proving as lethal as last season. Kids got a good head on his shoulder just needs to learn to play the publicity game and not slag off his employers like one Mr Crutchlow and he will go far. Completely agree with Bradley Smith comment the kid is a grid filler and not much more.
Interwsting of him to note that moto2 to him is more attractive than a pramac duc with factory support he wants to be a winner good on him.

Also he drags his elbow while riding I wonder if that is a Marquez mimic or thats just the way to ride these moto2 bikes. Rossi and Jorge prefer the 250 corner speed style.

LOL, I agree with the Bradley comment. How Bradley got one of the best rides in MotoGP is a mystery. It must be down to having a good manager and backers than his riding ability. Even when Carl Crutch came to T3 he was at the front from the start even if the final race results didn't reflect his speed.
Bradley is nowhere to be seen circulating with the CRT boys.
If Bradley had any self respect he would walk away from T3 at the end of the year and give the bike to someone who can use it.

Love that Redding called out the joke that is Bradley Smith on a a Tech3 bike.
Only the top level rides for a given class should get MotoGP rides. Redding is definitely up there. Far more than Bradley was ...
Break the contract and give Bradley a CRT bike as a grievance package. Then at least it won't be so embarrassing when he's riding among other CRT riders.
