Well done lad - you deserve a full works ride and I look forward to seeing you get one. Just a real shame you do not get equal machinery even against your team mate but your talent will shine through...

I saw you win at Donnington five years ago and thought then you will be a force for British Motorcycle racing...

Get the championship...

Pardon? I have posted nothing about Kalio... Good racer etc. read my post again. I am commenting on the fact he will have inferior machinery to his team mate Bautista next year. Perhaps people should read not troll. Of course his machinery is the same as Kalio. The problem is he is much heavier than Kalio but there we are - he is still winning like it or not.

What annoys me is he gets nothing like a works ride net year - and even his team mate will have better machinery...

DoctorG - I don't really see how you can expect Redding to walk straight into a works ride or something very similar in his rookie season at MotoGP level. And please don't mention Marquez because he is an absolute one-off that monstered his way through the lower classes.
Redding's package will be good and the challenge will be for him to beat other riders on similar levels of machinery.
If he can do that then the chances will come.
At least he is starting off on a 'real' bike rather than a CRT.

Excuse me - why cant he not walk into a competitive package when Bradley and Marquez did? Honda had the rule changed last year to allow just such and if (if) Scott wins this year what exactly has Marquez over Scott other than not having the youngest ever GP win? (And frankly who knows how the Rookies of the last three years would have done given this years chances One of them did beat Marquez to the Championship you know)

Yes he is incredible. Scott is younger you know... I assume you were not at Silverstone when he flew past Marquez despite all the disadvantages of weight etc last year?

I consider it ridiculous that he enters Moto GP on machinery that is not even the equivalent of his team mate let alone Bradley Smiths kit.
If you think different then that's really sad.
That said whatever shape of Honda you have at the moment its far in front of anything else so who knows..

@DoctorG: Not, trolling, it's a grammar thing. Don't use the present tense (Kallio is currently his teammate, if I'm not mistaken) when referring to the future and confusion like this won't happen.

Never give Kalio a thought when reading doctorGs comment.
Yes MM got the works Honda,Pol gets a fully kitted M1, Bradl the same, what and Scotts getting a bike running contact breakers
what a cracker from Scott, just wished I'd the money to attend today,would have been spine tinglin to watch

Only right thing yamaha had did was signing J L and V R in last ten years. See thier rider selection it has not been really great.

now lets take the case of HRC: Marc Marquez/Casey/Dani/ -- Honda is bot more careful about thier selection. i am not impressed with Polcolo. I wish Redding derserved Tech -3 seat. He is a much better rider. Come motogp 2014 Redding will prove that I am sure. Pol esparagaro to me deserves only a production racer ven the same case the bradley smith. Scott Redding to me should be on a prototype. I hope suzuki is hearing this.

smith got a better ride than redding is getting...
if redding wins the championship why shouldnt he be rewarded with a factory ride????
riders from lesser championships have gone straight to factory gp rides and done well.....
