MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


MattyMKO745:
another93: Has he leant that he can't do marquez ?
He has known that from the start... Not having the same support as Marc is having.. Also he is too big for the bike, HRC need to change this.. Not every rider they want is small!!
Come on Matty. Cal isn't that much smaller than Redding (and he doesn't weigh that much less), and Simo was a big dude who rode the RCV well.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


MattyMKO745: It's quite simple actually... There is a lot of people who rate Scott highly, because he has enough talent to be world champion in MotoGP one day if you believe me or not... Yes he had only 4 wins in all 3 classes and only 7 top 10 in two season in MotoGP so far, but he didn't have the support some riders receive from early age and had to built his own steps if he wanted to succeed...
I'm about 95% certain that Redding will never be a world championship in GP. I'd wager that Fabio Quartararo will be a world champion however.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I am always able to come back


Makrus: Strongly disagree. You can only speak for yourself when you say personality matters. I guess we all see things a little differently.
That's your prerogative, but to most sports fanatics....personalities matter when it comes to LIKABILITY. Skillset is irrelevant in that arena. It doesn't matter what the sport is, people buy into the skills AND the personalities. Skills alone aren't enough for fans to buy into the athlete completely. Fine, maybe you and some others are anomalies.....outliers unwilling to admit that personalities do generally matter. To most fans, people buy into the person, not necessarily the performance.

Pugde5: I am not a fan of Scott. But in Moto 2 if you went to a track you could see him and MM do things that no one else could. I am a huge Iannone fan. In practice he came around one lap and I saw him trying the same moves and he ended in the gravel. I know that Iannone will find a way to succeed - that is why I am a fan of his. But for skill and talent - Scott has it.
Umm, what exactly did Scott do that nobody else could? You're romanticizing his M2 career. Redding has 4 wins across all classes. Iannone has 12. Redding has 16 podiums. Iannone has 25. Redding had a good year and came in 2nd. Iannone had three good years in a row and came in 3rd those three years, and that's on two different bike chassis. That's called consistency. On factory bikes, Iannone was/is inside the top 10, and is currently 5th. Redding is back there with Open bikes on a factory Honda. Iannone is a BETTER rider than Redding. All day, every day!

Bryan277: What you can't have (and it's what Redding's got) is an inexperienced rider joining forces with an inexperienced engineer in a hastily put-together team. That just doesn't work as Redding's dismal performances prove.
Soooooo.........did the 2014 season have zero impact on their experience? That was rhetorical. They've got a year under their belt, so they aren't exactly a "new" team now. A year of set-up data (plus access to factory data) is quite beneficial. Sure, it's a new bike, but it's a much improved bike than the one they had. No matter how you slice this pie, there is no excuse to be running around in the exact same positions as he did on the Open bike. His results/point tally from the first four races of 2014 on the Open bike are nearly identical to his 2015 results on the Factory bike (..7th, RET, 14th, 13th versus 13th, RET, 9th, 13th). No progress whatsoever.

MotoGP » ‘Positive’ end to poor weekend for Redding


MikoGP: Why is Scott Redding so highly rated? He's had 3 Wins in like 7-8 years of GP racing, and what like 3 top tens in motogp in more than a year? And people are still trying to compare him to Marquez? I just don't get it...
People are very eager to find somebody......anybody.....to steal Marquez's thunder (..VdM, Redding, Vinales, etc. etc.). Riders like Rossi, Marquez, Lorenzo, Stoner, Pedrosa, etc. come along very infrequently. People hail Redding as the youngest GP winner, but that is a laurel that he cannot rest on. It really don't mean anything in the grand scheme of the GP game. I AM interested to see where Quartararo goes however. He is an impressive M3 rookie, and if not for his last corner mistake last Sunday, he could've won that race. That is truly impressive to be at the pointy end during his rookie season (and in his first few races). He might have the chops. It'll be interesting to see how he develops as a rider as he matures.

Bryan277: He was riding for Gresini last year
That's right. My bad on that one. I was crossing two different points that I was trying to make. Nonetheless, Redding worked with MVDS in M2 for 4 years, so he and the team aren't entirely a new relationship in which the team needs to learn the rider and vice versa. He has the Ohlins and the Brembos that he lobbied for, and the factory support/data. I just want to see the guy get results or stop running his mouth. It's no different than Crutchlow, only now Crutchlow is running strong.

MotoGP » Crutchlow helps with Honda swing-arm test


Bryan277: Yes. Some may argue that Galbusera also had no prior MotoGP experience, but he works with a 36 year-old rider who is a 9 times World Champion and came with a stable and vastly experienced factory team in support.
Galbusera was only brought up because somebody mentioned that Pike's superbike experience was a detriment. Galbusera as a juxtaposition was meant to demonstrate that the superbike background is irrelevant, especially when you guys keep tossing in the rider's experience and the team's experience as variables that bolster the result. Redding wouldn't be catching flack if he had not have been yelling, "Give me the factory bike and I'll get you the results" last season (much like Crutchlow caught flack when he was chasing a factory bike and passive aggressively criticizing certain riders before him, only to fail on the Duc too). He dug his own hole.
