MotoGP » Redding talks Pramac Ducati offer


Matt2: Scott the problem isnt the frame. Dani has it, beating you injured. Cal has it, beating you. Marc was topping the timesheets with 2015 frame, but hitting the deck a lot. The frame has pace. Last year "If I have more power, brembo and ohlins, I would this and this" Well now you have them and crying over how you need special atenttion from manufacturer when you are giving nothing to them, exept embarassing their factory satellite bike. And btw, Petrucci is serious talent. He put some great results with BMW Sutter when everyone else was spitting on it. Everyone cept saying how good Hernandez is, well Petrucci came and knoked him down. Same thing is going to happen to Scotty boy and the best part? Hes fans has no more excuses about weight when hes teammate is heaviest GP rider.
Well said!

So Redding finally puts the bike where it should be [at his home race] after that tirade he went on about Honda, and his very unprofessional statements about other riders. That's quite his M.O. He called it though........right when he's ready to quit, he nets a decent result (although it remains to be seen if he can translate that to a top 10 result in the race). He is a piece of work.

MattyMKO745: Just one question for everyone who thinks Scott to Ducati would be suicide.. Why is that so?? It's obvious Honda doesn't fit him, size and style wise.. First problem I see with Scott on a Honda is that bike is still way too small for him.. Second problem is that Scott is a corner speed guy, always was... On a Ducati he could be able to use strengths of his style of riding.. Also he would be riding the same bike Ducati is using to test Michelins.. So why not give him a chance?? He hardly has anything to lose right now...
You're not making any sense Matty. The Ducati isn't a corner speed bike, so how are you justifying it as a better move to fit his style. The only corner speed bike on the grid is the Yamaha. The GP15 is also a pretty small bike too. I agree that he has nothing to lose though. He'll learn pretty fast that the Ducati learning curve isn't any easier than the Honda.

Guna4699: have you ever seen a satellite Honda and factory duke it out for positions??
Yep....Simoncelli. Bautista. Bradl. Crutchlow. Those 4 names air out your theory. In fact, when was the last time a Yamaha satellite bike was regularly on the podium? Oh that's right.......probably when Crutchlow and Dovi rode for T3. Other than that, the Yamaha satellite bikes have been no better at fighting at the front than the Honda satellite bikes. Smith got a podium last year, but so did Bautista. Bautista was right up there on the satellite bike in 2013 too (netting a number of 4th and 5th place finishes, and only finishing 7th and 8th on 3 occasions).

Guna4699: Bautista fight whom? Pol/Smith has atleast some little hope of getting a factory ride in couple of years, Ben got that, Dovi was close if not for Valentino's comeback, No matter how good they ride neither do scott nor do Cal can never imagine about a factory Honda ride. Honda uses bikes without repsol sticker to fill grid, cal was much better with tech 3,,
Did you not read the specifics that I mentioned? It sounds like you completely overlooked what I said. In 2013, Bautista had an extremely good satellite year. You made a specific statement, and I disproved it. Cal was better on T3, but that's because he gelled well with the Yamaha. Nobody is getting a factory ride with Yamaha or Honda unless Rossi, Pedrosa, Lorenzo or Marquez retires. There is nobody that will "push" them out of their seats.

cfsteezy: Redding already had a frame built for him i thought? Maybe i am wrong but good for him being on form for Q.
He does. I forgot the exact specs that they mentioned, but it is longer and taller. All of the factory riders have frames tailored specifically to them, so it's annoying when fans act like they are carbon copies and just group all of the frames together. Marquez's frames are nothing like Pedrosa's. Rossi's are nothing like Lorenzo's. Redding's is specially designed due to his size. Cruthlow has another frame.

MotoGP » Rossi playing catch-up at Silverstone


LiVio:
titfortat: Why doesn't Rossi just admit he's old, he doesn't have the pace and he sucks at Silverstone?
Can you imagine being old and past it and still be jointly leading the championship,what does that say about the competition he's up against?????
I don't think I could have said it any better. For the guy who is "old" and "past it" as many love to utter, he sure does put up one hell of a fight against some top competition (since Rossi detractors are quick to utter nonsense about him not having competition before). First it was..."Rossi will never ride for Yamaha again". He disproved that. Then it was, "Well, he'll never win a race again!" He disproved that too. Then it was, "Well, he'll never win a WC again!" ..and it still remains to be seen, but he is putting up one hell of a fight for a "weathered" battle bred 36 year old world champion.
