Scott Redding climbs to third in Jerez Moto2 test

Is a dog, just puts into perspective how well Brad did on it last year. Looking good for Scott, reckon a couple of wins and championship runner up will secure him a decent GP seat next year.

Re Scott, he was at a severe disadvantage the previous seasons due to his size/weight so in fact did a sterling job bearing in mind how close the performance is with the one control engine type ( Honda ), meaning lightweight riders had a huge advantage.

This season there is a minimum weight for rider AND bike together meaning a more level playing field, they should do this in all racing classes imo.

Go on my son

I have to join in the praise for Mr Redding as not only is he bloody quick he is not a robot like some racers. The best thing also was to make the bikes an equal weight so that the spanish pygmies dont have it all there own way.

So...being small suddenly have more of an advantage

"the spanish pygmies dont have it all there own way."

When a nation and their riders lose so much against other riders, the comparisons are inevitable. So that nation now gets a rule to nullify the smaller, lighter and weaker riders supposedly advantage. 

Yet the rule does not take into account that taller, stronger and heavier riders can make the bike easier to handle. This advantage they have is not nullified, yet we see the smaller rider topping the charts.

How about that said nation bring talent and not blown up talent. How about they have a better program to filter out the talent rather than the who's who or who have money to go racing. Then back the real talent.

Sick and tired of hearing about what ails the Brits, yet we have 2 riders in the big body frame category that have wins in Motogp.

Quit complaining, shuddup and ride. Deal with it.

I'm fully aware thanks bud, that's why i stated that i never doubt Scotts effort. Due to the changing weight advantage that some have enjoyed and others have cursed, Scott needs to make it count this season imo. He won't be here next season, it'll be (hopefully) MotoGp or WSB.

Here's hoping he can end his career in this class in the 'top 3'.
