I am personally hoping that he will not make the step up to MotoGP on a Ducati.
I would much rather see someone with his talent and speed on a competitive and potential race winning package instead of wasting that talent trying to "hang off" one of the donkeys of the paddock.

IMO it is Hayden's seat.. Now with the rookie rule abolished, he can go directly to a factory. I don't see Honda or Yamaha letting go of their 4 factory riders.. Even if Yamaha is looking at a change it is Espargaro..

Hope he doesn't go to one of the Yam powered CRT's or the Honda productions. This here is a guy who I believe will do better than Bradls or Bautistas..

If he can get the other Tech 3 with Cal, nothing like it!

I reckon he'll take Bautista's ride at Gresini. He was offered to ride for them this year, but San Carlo said they wanted an Italian or Spanish rider. But now that San Carlo have left as the sponsors, it'll leave the door open for Redding to take his seat on the RC213V. Bautista will probably get moved onto the new customer Honda, as he's been doing all the testing for the Showa suspention that they'll be putting on the new bikes.

Why Hayden? Unless he wants to leave he's a well liked rider who is keeping up with Dovi and fulfills his sponsor obligations in the important US market.
If Scott went to Ducati it'd be Spies seat- unless he has a 2 yr contract.

I can't see Scott riding for a 'factory' anyway, more likely a private team.

I see Buatista getting shafted to a proddy Honda Nakamoto in an interview last year didnt sound to imprest with Baustista and expects thats he should be a regular podium contender more often than not.
Hopefully the stars align for Redding and gets a decent ride where he either exceeds expectations on a sattelite bike or a factory ride.
Also Spies could be moved back to WSBK or be a development rider as he is signed to Ducati factory and in his words ride what ever they want him to.
