MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Scott Redding - Q&A


Petrucci will be a good yardstick to measure himself against but I think fighting for podiums may be a little optimistic. Initial testing times really mean nothing, I remember the year that Aleix was testing fastest on the Forward and then did nothing in the season. What Tito does at Marc VDS may also influence how his performance in 2015 is seen. I wish Scott well but don't underestimate the work he has to do to perform better on a satellite Ducati which on paper is a worse racing machine than the satellite Honda. Either way this is a make or break year for Scott and he will have to focus on staying calm, not letting the pressure get to him and getting back the enjoyment of racing.

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Cal Crutchlow - Q&A


Great interview and good frank answers from Cal. I was watching an old race where Cal was on the Tech3 and I'd forgotten quite how good he is - he's one of the few WSBK riders who truly made the transition into a MotoGP one. He's kind of like Dovi where you feel frustrated that all things don't align to make him into a regular race winner. Hoping he has a great season.

MotoGP » 2017 MotoGP rider moves ‘after 3-4 races’


MM and JR are safe but both DP and VR need to put in a tidy season so that their place isn't taken by Maverick, Aleix or Ianonne. It will be interesting to see if Bradley makes a step forward because if he does he might be in line for a factory ride. MotoGP teams absolutely need to get on the phone to Jonathan Rea, I think he could make a real splash in MotoGP. perhaps on a satellite Honda? That man needs to be in the big show.

MotoGP » Redding targets MotoGP top six, podium fight


For Scott this is a make or break year. His performances in Moto2 and on the customer Honda show that he has to be talented but he can't afford a mediocre season in 2016 - he's got to be mixing for top 6 or he'll go off team manager's radars. The hope is that the problem was the character of the factory Honda rather than a general problem with the sophistication of a factory MotoGP bike and its associated electronics - his crew chief will be key. Hoping for a great season.
