MotoGP » Redding: I still have a few tenths in my pocket


Monstermash:
Netmeister:
Monstermash: We will see as I don't think the top 10 will be his home very often or if at all..
I have to ask, do you even watch MotoGP? He finished in the top 10 7 times last season on the lackluster customer Honda. You could argue there's more competition for top 10 this year, but he also has a much better bike too. Top 10 won't be a big struggle. However, top 6 will.
Yeah I'm watching him on the much better bike drop down to 13th quickest. Top 10 will be his goal.
So you're basing your forecast on Scott's whole season on how he is doing in a pre-season test, on a new bike, with a new team??? What I see is a quality rider and team going about the business of testing and making gradual improvements. I'm betting on a top 5 early in the season, once he gets his race head on.

MotoGP » Redding 'hoped to be closer to Marquez'


Every year we go through the same banter on here...firstly, I hadn't realized the test places went towards the championship, when did that start? Secondly, why does everyone take what riders say out of context, in this case "I hoped to be closer to MM...." Supposedly means I should be competing with MM. Lastly, we compare teams with years of experience, including Suzuki in this list, with those with zero data or experience with the bike. If Scott isn't doing anything by mid season then start complaint.

MotoGP » Redding: I’m starting from scratch


Think we need to take what Scott is saying as it is. It's not like the old days where you just added a couple of clicks of rebound and change the jets, today there are so many parameters that unless you and your crew can interpret what's happening quickly and then implement changes that work for the specific machinery, then you're as good as lost. I do think Scott has the talent but he may not be the best rider at setting the bike up quickly to get the best out of it and without historical data, it's going to take some time. Also, Scott is a rider who needs confidence in his machinery, he doesn't seem to be able to just jump on anything and wring it's neck i.e. he has to work through each change and pick up the pace gradually. That all said, when he finally does get on the pace watch out GP world :)

MotoGP » Second wrist surgery for Nicky Hayden


JasonLewis: Injured with 2 DNS's and still only 4 points back from so called "superstar" Redding. Get healthy Nick and put little Scotty back in his place. Despite the hate, I know damn well you're the superior rider.
I read the messages before yours and couldn't find the hate you mentioned...maybe on another thread/forum? I do see a lot of animosity for Scott Redding on here though.....Scott is an up and coming rider, learning the ropes and doing a great job. That doesn't take anything at all away from Nicky, who is an ex world champion at this level and has proven year on year that he has the skills/determination etc. to ride at the very top. Why not direct your anger at Honda, who have stitched up a number of top riders in recent years and the championship to a greater extent

MotoGP » Redding 3.5s from Bautista


I am a fan of both SR and NH and actually think they're quite similar in a lot of respects i.e. quietly get on with the job, work hard, are consistent and are always aggressive on the track. Unfortunately, Bautista's bike might well be a poison chalice without Ohlins and a few bhp down on the works bikes i.e. unless you're an alien in the waiting I don't see how you can break the top 3 as it currently stands.
