KnowNothing: Feel bad for NH as his potential is far above Redding, who is receiving first Honda accolades based on another riders injury. Hope he heals up over the break.

Know nothing
I was exaggerating, but you get the point. When Rossi goes, who will take his spot? Pol? Vinales? Aleix? Salom? A. Marquez ? What country are they from? Where will Dovi go from here, Suzuki? The domination by Spain is only just beginning.

I won't get into the whole NH WC debate, but I think that NH is equal or better than Redding, rookie or not. That said, I don't think either of them are top 5 competitors at the moment.

MattyMKO745:

And you seem to forget that Scott is a rookie compared to Hayden who is a veteran... and he only missed one race... and if you get into the results a bit more, you will see a lot of things that stand out


You're right. I was counting the race in which Hayden was blatantly taken out by Iannone.

But I don't care about the rookie thing. He's raced at all of these tracks on motorcycles for years now. If it was a rookie coming from the USA (for example) who had never seen the tracks, I'd consider it. I watched a rookie walk away with the championship last year against all the "aliens". Since Scott says he's every bit as good as Marquez (his words, certainly not mine), he should walk away from the other customer Hondas. He hasn't done so thus far. If he takes Sachsenring's result and translates it to most of the other races this year - I'll believe it. 'Til then...

And you seem to forget that before Hayden was injured, he was by far and away the best customer Honda rider. He sat out two races before Redding tied him in the points....

Redding ran really good at Sachsenring and Qatar. But apart from those 2 races, I don't see anything that stands out.

Hayden-Please go to SBK

Spanish domination- Not a single spanish rider on the podium for Sundays Moto2 or Moto3 races.Might not mean a lot on it's on and It'll take some time for riders to come through to GP but there really is a breadth of international talent in the support classes

ProfessorX: Lolz, Americans and just about anyone else is better off in WSBK. Where idol worship isn't top priority and different manufacturers actually have a legitimate chance to win races.


Hayden can do exactly as Toni Elias did: Move to moto2. Hayden can then prove his worth there by winning races and regularly be on the podium. By winning the Moto2 WC in "style" Hayden can then go back to motogp as Elias did and get a seat with a Grissini factory bike. That simple.

In fact, MM is toying with the idea to also race in moto2 next year....
