Its always a bit iffy when you start trying to compare riders from different eras and different classes, but when you take into account that he is also the youngest GP winner ever and was best rookie in 08, it does look an impressive CV already. Some big, big names on that list. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the year works out for him now he has the new chassis. Good to see him putting in the results away from home too. I think Scott is the real deal.

good on scott - Unregistered

some really big names on there but scott has done it on merit,not forgetting his underpowered 125cc bike he was riding when he won the british gp,rain is a leveller and he showed he had what it takes and i for one look forwrd to seeing scott HOPEFULLY get a factory moto gp bike in the big class in a few years. markymark well said,i agree with you.
