MotoGP » Redding waiting on Gresini for MotoGP 2015

alanw5293: We can only comment on what we've read so not you or I know how Scott has handled the events plus how do you know he couldn't match those other riders, MM,DP,JL even VR, have always been on full works bikes.Seem to recall him beating Rabat 2013.
He has shown great promise and is a talented lad, I am not disputing that, as I say I also hope he does well. My point is that all these guys and I am foretelling in the case of Rabat and Miler, have/will have world titles. Redding has nothing of note to show. Coming a close runner up is soon forgotten. He is not yet in a position to be thumping any tables and making demands. If you read what I said it was not a question of his ability it was a question of his attitude and the fact that if he does think he is bigger than Moto GP and believes that he should dictate what machine class he gets then there are plenty of equally talented and indeed more talented people who will gratefully full the space he vacates

MotoGP » Redding waiting on Gresini for MotoGP 2015

So stay at home for a year and then see if anyone comes knocking after that 12 months. Need to be very careful what you say. This guy desperately needs to learn how to think as well as he rides as there is not a ton of thought going into his mouth at times before he opens it. Start banging the table like your some kind of hot poop when there are so many other talents around, some with titles to their names, is not the smartest thing in the world to do. I hope he gets a good ride and succeeds but he needs to wake up and realise that he is no Marquez, Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Rossi or even Miller, Rabat etc as I would not bet against either of those two being world champs by the end of the season.

MotoGP » Camier keeps Aspar seat for Silverstone

@biaggi - the relevance of Karel Abraham being partly sponsored by his Dad is what exactly? NONE of these guys have come from sink hole estates and you can be damn sure that families have sacrificed hugely to help them on their way. Bottom line is that if you are not good enough to be out there on the grid then no matter how much money you have you won't stay. Remember Paris Hilton sponsoring a team a couple of years back? If it was just about cash then she'd have been riding the thing. Karel Abraham is as worthy as any of the riders on the Open Honda's and it is amazing that there are still some people who can't see past his Dad. I would do the same for my kid if I had the money and he the talent.

MotoGP » Karel Abraham - Q&A

He's a classy guy, a pleasure to talk to, smart and talented. The kind of guy I guess we should all hate as most of us don't have that BUT I, for one, don't. I think Abaja is exactly the kind of person I hope my son can grow up to be. On the money side of things none of those guys come from poverty as if you are poor then you can't get your young kid into bikes unless in exceptional circumstances. The biggest hypocrite was Casey on this, for making the snide remarks at Karel and his Dad yet he seemed to forget that his parents sold up EVERYTHING they had to take their son to Europe to go racing.
