Redding is certainly at a bit of a weight disadvantage. Even in MGP he would be the heaviest rider at 74kg (a mere 23kg more than Pedrosa). However, to consider Marquez to be a fly weight is simply wrong. He is heavier than Pedrosa, Dovizioso and Stoner in MGP and at 59kg is within 3-4 kg of the average of moto2 riders most of whom are 60-65kg. Its not a weight advantage or an engine advantage that MM has in moto2, it is a skill advantage. That will reduce in MGP but I still expect him to do well (after the first 3 races when he'll bin it....). Scott may have more kg but he also has a great race mentality and it wont be long before he is on the top step.
