MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda

I know this is a Brit-centric site, and I'm all for a little jingoism, but I really don't see it in Redding. I'm really not trying to start a war here, but to me he hasn't done anything particularly wonderful this season. He had one good practice session last round and other than that mainly circulates around 13th or 14th unless faster riders fall. I recognize that the Honda is not great, but IMHO he has not distinguished himself significantly from either Aoyama or Hayden. Hayden's injuries and subsequent extended absence has helped SR stay at the top of the Honda backmarker crew, but that's not really saying much. I don't harbor any animosity towards him, and hope he proves me wrong, but I really don't get all the predictions of great success. Asbestos suit (on), so flame away, Redding fans.

F1 » Rosberg: 'Megaphone exhaust' made no change

Bernie, just put a speaker on each car. Before each race fans could vote on what former F1 engine sound they wanted played from each. That way F1 can just admit they've gone to an artificial solution and we will at least get to hear the right noises. BRM V16, Matra 12, Ferrari flat-12, Cosworth...I'd rather listen to those sounds played loud through speakers on the cars, tied to the relative revolutions each engine was actually turning at a given moment, than hear a weak attempt at amplifying a bunch of already weak-sounding turbo engines.

MotoGP » Hayden: Redding’s got a lot of quality

It's funny how some can turn the complaints of a true racer into whinging. There's a difference. Over the years Hayden has demonstrated two things consistently: When he screws up he admits it, and when the machinery's not up to snuff he speaks his mind. His Honda has clearly been subpar all preseason. The speeds confirm it, Honda has basically admitted it. And, for all that, he's been the quickest of the RCV1000 riders throughout the testing. It's a shame for he and Redding that they'll probably be back there midpack all season, having great battles that we'll never get to see unless we attend the races in person. Redding seems a class guy and really stepped up in the race. I wasn't much of a fan of his but I'm changing my opinion. And I agree on Iannone, he was like a different rider. Shame about his fall, but he showed character pressing on to a respectable result afterward.
