It was a case of mission accomplished for MotoGP rookie Scott Redding, the young Englishman finishing the season as the top RCV1000R rider and securing a Factory class RC213V seat for 2015.

With a notable lack of power on the Open Honda forcing its riders to admit early Open class defeat to Forward Yamaha's Aleix Espargaro, Redding was still the breakout performer on the machine.

Adapting to MotoGP with aplomb, Redding failed to score just twice and finished as high as seventh - the bike's best result - twice. Redding even managed to outpace Factory team-mate Alvaro Bautista on occasions (both running Showa rather than Ohlins suspension) and finished just one place behind the Spaniard in the final standings.

About the vote:
Rather than repeat the Riders' World Championship standings, the MotoGP Star of the Year poll asks viewers to take into account factors such as machinery, performance relative to a team-mate, riding style, experience, injuries, progress and personality just as much as race results.

Over 50,000 votes were cast for the 2014 Crash.net MotoGP Star of the Year poll, where viewers awarded each of this year's full-time participants - only Colin Edwards, who retired during the season, was not included - with a mark out of ten.
