Scott Redding to stay in Moto2 in 2013

Scott Redding will remain with the Marc VDS Racing Moto2 squad in 2013 after hopes of a Ducati or Honda switch to MotoGP vanished. The Gloucestershire rider’s new deal will be confirmed during this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang, while Finn Mika Kallio is to remain his teammate in an unchanged line-up. The Belgian-based Marc VDS Racing squad had reached an...

What a pompus, arrogant, totally incorrect statement.

Both tests were covered in depth by the Italian website

By in depth, do you mean they ran a direct comparison between each test? If you have that insight, maybe you could have qualified your statement in reasonable context by giving an example or two of why you think Iannone is more deserving.

Instead you worded it just as you do your frequent and unwarranted attacks on Crutchlow, therefore it looked like just another of your digs at an English rider.

If you were just giving an opinion you could have worded it better.

that you choose one of the 20th centuries most repulsive individuals as your Avatar. Is it for 'laughs' or some perceived shock value?

I have a goat but would rather stay on subject.  For sure, would have liked to have seen Scott on the duke.  I reckon you have fast riders with bollocks and fast riders with finesse.  The ones with more bollocks than finesse are ultimately faster but make mistakes or push too hard (Gardner, Schwantz, Simo etc), the finesse riders are more steady and tend to win more championships (Lawson, Rainey).  Off course they all have bollocks bigger than any of us.

Then you have the rare ones that manage to combine a good measure of everything - Doohan, Rossi.

Scott is young and certainly fits the first category and I think could develop further.  Would much rather see him in GP1 than Bradders though I wish him all the best.  Meanwhile, agree with getting more podiums in GP2 and hope some of the old gaurds make space for him next year.

Arrogant and lazy ...

By in depth, do you mean they ran a direct comparison between each test?

I gave you the link - go and do some research yourself and become better informed.

I'll tell you something for nothing though - there was a third rider in contention but he didn't take part in the Mugello trial. Danilo Petrucci (the young Ioda CRT rider) had tested for Ducati (when Hayden was injured) and Ducati were so impressed that they've offered him the job of official test rider (which Petrucci would like to take but can't because he's under contract to Ioda for a further 12 months).

Finally, I'm a Scott Redding 'fan' - but that doesn't disguise the fact that Iannone went much quicker than Redding (despite Iannone completing fewer laps in his rain affected trial).

I've read reports on both tests and nowhere is there any info to give a direct comparison between both tests - variables or constants with conditions, tyres bike spec etc.

You could have simply phrased your observation better, rather than make it look like just another attack on an English rider

Bulto.

Please just shut up now, you're starting to sound like a whinging girl. The post didn't fall into your remit of how things should be done, you've made that clear. Take it on the chin and move on, your reply's are becoming cringe worthy..
