Scott Redding ecstatic with 2012 form

Scott Redding believes he will be a consistent podium threat for the remainder of this year’s Moto2 world championship after the British rider’s brilliant start to 2012. A bitterly disappointing 2011 on the Suter chassis saw Redding fail to score a podium for the first time in his Grand Prix career. But he has been galvanised by a switch to the...

Good for Scott

Recognise inadequacies in your riding and work on them. Nobody ever won anything significant without having excellent throttle control. It's not a light switch.

Still a way to go yet though for the young man - wins wouldn't go amiss. If Ducati have finally had enough of Hayden's mediocrity then there are two red seats available 2013. Redding remains a possibility for one.

What a difference a year makes! A new chassis, growing maturity and a happy Scott. Long may it last.

Agreed 'nostro', wins should be next on the list.

Great Scotts

The moto 2 more than makes up for the somewhat lack lustre moto gp races and having a British guy doing this kind of stuff is bloody brilliant.

GOOD RIDER

Scott has what it takes to reach the top of his sport and i am sure that if their was a wieght limit for rider and bike combined in MOTGP 2 that scott would be top of the pile. Marquez has a big advantage with acceleration and top speed because of his light weight  give the Scott a decent moto gp bike and the weight advantage would deminish then see what he could do. The same goes for Bradley Smith another really good rider who always puts one over on his team mate

Surprised

to hear Scott's ecstatic with the year so far. Considering the times and results he put in during pre-season testing and reading how delighted he was with the new chassis it all suggested he would be a title contender. But if Scott's happy then great, and I hope it's nothing but podiums and wins for him for the rest of the year.

Motogp?

Get the lad signed up in Motogp! Why wouldnt you! Carmelo Ezpaletta seems happy to fast track his fellow Spanish boys into the top teams, shame he carnt wave the wand for Redding, Iannone, Luthi ect ect. Hes a awesome talent. Aggressive, stylish, and very very fast. dont forget how much time a lap Scott looses due to his wight disadvantage. if we had combined rider bike wight limits then Scott would be on the podium more and without doubt in my mind winning races. Scott's 10kg heavier than Marquez! thats massive in such a close a close class like Moto2

Super Scott

How about an all British Ducati team - Scott Redding and Cal Crutchlow, no expectations and everything to play for. Ducati have had to live with massive expectations from everyone over the last 2 seasons. Scotts size is unfortunately going to hold him back on all bikes except for the biggest and most powerful. He has a big future if he gets in the right Moto GP team....what does anyone else think...?

Yep, he is defo proper quick and the big bikes will make him a lot more competitive, especially now they're back to 1000s.  Although I personally think that heavier riders should be allowed more fuel or some allowance to compensate for their weight disadvantage. Or maybe it's just a coincidence that the top three riders are tiny bastards.

Scott is worthy of a seat in Tech 3, but for gawd sake don't dont get on the Ducat; If Vale can't make it work then, it probably won't ever work!

Look at Casey, a few years ago, he served his time at LCR before hitting the big time; Scott would be well placed for a good satellite ride within the next two years.
