MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


Twissta: I totally agree with you agree on this one, However I was pointing out that his over confidence and the lack of experience he and his team has, will need to re-assessed now that reality has set in.
Let's hope they reassess soon. I think people wouldn't be giving Redding so much schick if you hadn't pumped himself up and talked about what he "would" do "if" he had "better" machinery. He should have kept expectations low and let his racing to the talking. Instead he talked too much and his racing isn't representative of what his mouth says. Look at how P.Espargaro has handled his rookie and follow-up seasons compared to Redding. Pol just keeps a low profile and charges up front the best he can. Not much lip....just rubber to pavement.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


matt liddy:
Comprehend what you're reading and try to be objective. Redding's team has been around awhile (albeit in M2), so they are NOT new to GP's in general, and they have access to factory data as well. It's not a poor comparison at all. I kept it simple. It's not trolling. Next to his peers Redding is under-performing. You can try to make excuses for it, but it is what it is. Even he knows that he is under-performing and has said it explicitly.....and so has his team. When SR was on the 213-RS Open bike, everybody exclaimed that he'd "be up front" if he had the factory bike, etc. etc., and used the bike as justification for his performance. He has the factory bike now (and a full year in GP), and he's still performing about the same. The excuses while on a good bike only last for so long before you have to start looking at the rider. That goes for anybody.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


matt liddy: His engineer while very experienced, is a super bike guy.
So is Silvano Galbusera (for the most part). He spent the most recent years of his career in WSBK/WSS and he had no experience with the current GP tires or brakes either. Massimo Meregalli was even concerned when he said, "For sure he [Silvano] will need some time to adjust to MotoGP", but it has been demonstrated that he is obviously a talented Crew Chief, and his lack of experience isn't hindering his ability to assess and set up Rossi's bike. Don't make excuses for Redding AS A RIDER.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


Twissta: the difference is that MM had a complete factory team already around him who knew the bike, set up's etc..
The difference is that Marquez and Redding are on VERY different talent levels. Let's not sit here and act like "it's just the bike". Marquez had 2 WC's and nearly missed a 3rd due to his eye injury before even stepping foot into the premier class, only to blaze the premier class two years in a row. Aoyama is proof (as if the rational people needed any more of it) that the rider makes a huge difference. Pedrosa is constantly on the podium while Aoyama can't even crack the top 10 on the same bike. To his credit though, he does has a WC and more wins than Redding.

MotoGP » Smith: Why didn't we try this yesterday!


KnowNothing: The one time Pol finishes ahead of BS, it's "bad management". lol
Tomco: Its one of the few times that Espargaro has beaten Smith in a race. BS isnt the best out there but hes not doing a bad job either.
You do realize that Pol beat Smith last year in the standings as a rookie..........right? I don't see where you're getting the "one of the few times" statements from. They are pretty evenly matched, and it's early in the season.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I am always able to come back


Yearby23: What you saw in parc-ferme was raw emotion.. It was put on it was delight and relief that he is back at the top of his game. If you want to analyse personalities why not watch a soap opera?
Oh give me a break man. LOL! :) I wasn't referring to his "raw emotion" in PF (if you can even call it that). I was referring to his moon antics, swim antics, etc. Stop trying to act like personalities don't matter when discussing celebrities. The point people were trying to make is that ALL of his antics over the years have come across awkward and forced.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I am always able to come back


KnowNothing: That said, the ridiculous antics are umm.... strange. Out of character and a bit overplayed
This I agree with. He tries too hard to be a goof. It's just not his personality "on screen". Marquez........certified goof! Rossi.......certified goof and GP thespian! Lorenzo..........tries too hard like the kid in high school who wants to be liked and overdoes it. While I'm not a fan of J.Lo, he deserved his moment on the top step though.
