Redding targets MotoGP top six, Pramac podium fight

"I believe with this bike I can show my 100% potential, which I couldn't do the last two years" - Scott Redding.
Buoyed by two strong tests for Pramac Ducati, Scott Redding is targeting a top six place in this year's MotoGP World Championship.

Redding struggled badly for much of last year on a Marc VDS Factory Honda, but has looked instantly at home with Pramac, even leading the final day of private 2015 testing at Jerez.

Speaking at the team's 2016 launch in Italy the Englishman said: “Pramac is like a family. Everyone was so welcoming to me, it filled me with confidence and this is what gave me a good feeling from the beginning.

“You have to change the [riding] style quite a bit because it's a different bike, tyres and electronics but I'm learning fast and the team are helping me a lot. I feel comfortable and ready to race.

“I think I can achieve top six in the championship and fight for some podiums. I believe with this bike I can show my 100% potential, which I couldn't do the last two years. So if we can put it there, we'll be fighting.”

Redding took his first MotoGP podium during a chaotic dry-wet-dry race at Misano, but finished last year just 13th in the world championship - one place lower than he'd been on an Open class Gresini Honda in his rookie 2014 season.

The 23-year-old will ride alongside Danilo Petrucci, who claimed his debut rostrum in the wet at Silverstone.

You really can not say with all the changes that is taking place this year,after a few races the big boy's will come back up to speed. But i feel there is a golden chance in the first 2 races at least for a upset, by someone. Scott can be really fast if he has the right bike underneath him, a happy Scott is a fast one equal to BRADLEY or CARL! So watch out in SEPANG onwards, oh i forgot to mention SCOTT REDDING has a DUCATI CORSE CONTRACT! So they what him to do really well. P.S. That is why GIGI spends a lot of time with Scott!
