MotoGP Catalunya: Redding will ‘probably stay’ at Pramac

“I think they would like to see where we can put the potential, when we get everything together” - Scott Redding.
Scott Redding expects to remain at the Pramac Ducati team for the 2017 MotoGP season.

The Englishman joined Ducati's official satellite team at the start of this season and quickly looked at home on the Desmosedici, but has been unable to show his full potential due to technical problems in three of the six rounds.

“Honestly I'll probably stay where I am,” Redding said on Thursday in Catalunya. “There's no deal done yet, but I don't think I've done a bad job.

“I spoke with Francesco [Guidotti, team manager] and he said there is no reason why we shouldn't keep you. I think they would like to see where we can put the potential, when we get everything together.

“I'm confident they'll give me another year or two years.”

Assuming he stays, Redding expects Pramac to once again be given the ex-factory team bikes.

“I do believe if I stay here I will get this year's factory bikes passed down. That's how it works. Which I think will be a good bike and we'll have even more chance,” he said.

Redding got to follow the 2016 Desmosedici of Andrea Iannone last time out at Mugello and is in no doubt about its biggest strength.

“I think everyone saw it - the straight. It nearly took my helmet off when it came past! I didn't expect it. I felt someone there, which was Vinales, and then wroom! Iannone was past.”

Redding rides alongside Danilo Petrucci, who also looks to have a good chance of keeping his Pramac ride.

There is surely more to come from Scott and the Ducati, glad that both parties seem happy but I'd like to see Scott getting in the top 6 every now and then and be top 10 consistently for the remaining races. Only if the bike can keep going for 45 minutes that is.
