Scott will run production racer for 2 yrs and then he will take Alvaro's seat and race honda protype as Alvaro will join Suzuki and then it's upto Scott and Bradl to fight it out for Dani's seat as he will retire after filnishing 2016 season.

Any ride in moto gp is a good ride. Shame that Starring gets the boot but he hasent done much on that crt, in saying that , its one of the crappest bikes on the grid.
Good luck to Redding, he will do well .

Except the problem is I think the Tech3 will be a better bike.
The Production Honda has some big disadvantages. It will be a LOT better than the current CRT's, but it's not quite a prototype.

There are 4 prototype Hondas that this lesser spec bike is essentially rigged to not be competitive with. Then there are 4 Yams which are odds on to be better than it. So he's racing for 8th, or worse if Ducati get their bike sorted or Aprilia up their efforts.
I guess it's a case of wrong passport.
If there are other Honda production racers on the grid then beating those should be all that's required to get a shot at a better ride, if not then he isn't going to be able to show his potential.

totty,

Redding will be on a factory Honda for 2015, he'll be able to show his potential then and be on more or less equal machinery to Smith.

Yeah Espargaro will be on the superior bike next year but both being rookies, they may not be that far off each other. Look at Smith this year, he's riding about Ducati's pace. I expect Espargaro will do better than that but not that he'll be another Marquez. It'll be interesting to watch anyway.
