I've got to admit I thought Scott would be further up the standings after the three days of testing, however we forget that riding a MotoGP is incredibly tough. I think we will see steady improvement over the season from him as he gets to grips with his new team and new bike.

herewego you are partial right... He is getting used to a lot of things, but his wrist is fine for proper riding of the bike. However the main problem that he faces is that the bike has no base setup and he cannot share his data with other Honda proddie racers, even his teammate cannot help him, cause the bikes are too different.. He is going to take a while to get used to new lines, new brakes(massive difference to Brembo) and so one... Just wait and improvement will come soon enough!!!

herewego: Give the lad a chance for heavens sake!! Jeez, some people expect a bit too much sometimes! Scott has a lot to get used to and is still recovering from a wrist injury.


To be fair there's nothing wrong with his wrist now, he confirmed it in an article on bikesportnews.

21st in all 3 days wouldn't be making anybody smile. Unless they change the rules on rider weight with bike Scott will never make it to the front and will always be passed on any straight do to his size and weight restrictions.

his got no chance on that bike to come in to a new champion with a new bike that is not competitive sadly he will be forgotten at the back of the pack its a shame his a great rider motogp is becoming less and less a sport they either need a lot more factory bikes around 6 honda and 6 yamaha at least or no factory bikes so we get to see how good the riders are rather than how much money there team has
