MotoGP » Home roar for Redding, builds Factory case

“I just want to get on a Factory bike [next year] and see what I can do,” said Redding. “If I was finishing as the second Open Honda they [Honda] are not going to want me on the Factory bike. End of story. " No NH69, no problem. Prior to getting punted and re injuring his wrist at Lemans, Nick was posting better results. SR45 should have set that as a goal. Hope he gets his wish and lands a full spec RCV. Seriously, Scott will in all likelihood produce results similar to those before him on the non Repsol full spec Honda. The occasional podium., top fives, etc. He has youth on his side as well. However, been in GP for five years though with nothing that really makes him a "standout". Not true? Why the heck didn't LCR, with their new London based, deep pocketed sponsor, sign Redding? Young, charming, BRITISH. Baffling, to say the least.

MotoGP » ‘Disappointed’ Crutchlow consoled by pace, fans

"But it's nice to feel that [support] because at the moment if they'd all turned around and booed me I'd be in a worse place than I am now. But got a great reception. No doubt about that. Hopefully next year we can come back and give them something to really cheer about.” "Worse place than I am now". How so? You mean as a highly paid motorcycle racer? Geez, now I can relate. I'm not crazy about my "job" either. Ah, the entitled. Keep talking Cal.

MotoGP » Marc VDS pushing for Redding-Honda deal

Redding is young, personable and marketable. Not to mention brash. Hasn't MR45 done pretty much what was expected of him? After all, he did finish second in Moto2 last year. One would expect Scott to be battling for top production Honda rights and he has, albeit with the help of the NH69 injury. Hardly the huge revelation some seem to claim. Good, solid, expected results from a guy who has been in GP for five plus years. Why LCR didn't chose this British rider to go along with their new British sponsorship is puzzling. That would have been the ticket.

MotoGP » Dovi: 'Logic' behind new Ducati deal

AD04 is doing an admirable job on the Ducati. He comports himself well with regards to towing the company line, and understands who signs his paychecks. I'm sure management is happy with the results and Andrea's professionalism. I also agree with Kwack636R in that since Dovi formally rode for the mighty Repsol Honda team, he has been given fantastic opportunities in MotoGP. Here's hoping the new GP15 is legitimately competitive and we see Dovizioso challenging for wins. Racing is better when many guys have the opportunity to realistically win.
