Apart from the obvious distraction of - what's an "Open class win"? The fact is that Scott has done a lot right so far this year. The proddy Honda is not a top ride, but Scott has pushed it to the limit. He deserves a shot on something much more competitive. I look forward to seeing how this pans out. Good luck, Scott. You've earned it.

If he keep doing is job he will be reward... Scoot has been more quiet now and he is focus on what he whant!! 4sure is not an Happy situacion when one runner up in Moto2 has to worck one year in one bike that clearly have a diferente target i say the same for Oliveira in Moto3 but at least this is Scoot First sesson in Motogp wille Oliveira allready had experience in Moto3 just need the BIKE, For Scoot having a slower bike is not that bad to learn, thats why some people say that Miller will go to LCR but will have an open bike, anyway If Scoot keep worcking like this he will get one Factory Honda bike just like i bealive Oliveira will find a better deal for 2015... They just have to respect there targets doing there best and keep Focus..

SR is doing a great job, he's keeping his head down and his mouth shut unlike some others and is making the open Honda work for him. With the performance gap between open and factory class machines closing in the coming years, he's going to find himself in a happy place having cut his teeth on this bike.

-- I just heard Miller/Maverick Vinaeles/Alex esparagaro to Suzuki. I think Suzuki is making same mistakes what they did earlier and at last will cry and making two bike team to single team and then all out pull out of it. I dont think they are learning at all. Ideally they should have one experienced person from Motogp - It has to be Randy De Puniet/Colin Edwards/Steffan Bradle OR worse case Bautista(I know all are struggling however they need one experienced rider for atleast 2 seasons to get to grips with entire World Championship) and second one should be a guided young talent and it has to be scot redding and not M

second rider should be a guided young talent and it has to be scot redding and not Miller who is yet to prove something in Motogp/Moto2 or even in moto-3(by winning world championship).
Maverick as per me is entering too soon without proving enough in Moto-2(although he is having an impressive year with a win already in his debut year). If I were his manager I will ask him to focus this year and get couple more wins and next year build on it and atleast get 5 to 6 wins(OR win a world championship by being consistent like he did in Moto3)

I don't know where you got this information, but there are strong rumours that Suzuki will do a deal with Aleix (who couldn't accurately be described as inexperienced) and Vinales. Vinales, without having dominated Moto2, has shown that he is a hot property. Colin Edwards is retiring. For whatever reason, Suzuki is not looking to RDP to take one of the rides. He may continue on as test rider, or, he may take another role. The Suzuki in tests with published results has achieved lap times that are comparable to the Honda Proddies. They need to do better than that. Maybe Aleix can do it. He has done well in CRT and Open Yamaha so far.

Miller is linked to Honda, and much press from people allegedly "in the know" claiming that it will happen. It is called "silly season" for good reason,

...cont. and I hope someone is looking after his interests.

Numerous reports link Miller to a Honda proddy ride with LCR, or maybe Gresini. He seems to have the X-factor, and his results last year made the Honda look much better than it was. He could well be unbeatable on the 2014 Honda Moto3 bike, and Honda apparently wants him. Dorna apparently does too, "to boost Australian MotoGP TV ratings". Passport motivation.

One article suggested that the complications are that Miller is sponsored by Red Bull, while LCR has Cal riding for Monster, and Gresini is sponsored by Go and Fun...sponsors in a team like to be exclusive, so it will be entertaining to watch. So he appears to be a pawn in a political game. I hope it works out for him. We will see soon enough.

Thats not true. I've been a fan of Bradley Smith for awhile. He seems like the only english rider that doesn't feel like he's entitled to everything. cal and scotty are no barry sheene, let alone a jeremy mcwilliams.
