Qatar MotoGP: Espargaro beats Redding to Moto2 win

2012 Moto2 runner up Pol Espargaro kicked off 2013 in style with victory in Qatar after a race long battle with Brit Scott Redding. It was Takaaki Nakagami who took the lead early in the race, but the Japanese rider was unable to hold off Redding and Espargaro midway through the race. Redding took the lead with 15 laps remaining and held...

V-Max - don't go there because you present nothing but more 'fat-boy' excuses. Redding rode brilliantly - but was beaten. Why?

from Scott this season, he's a bit smoother and did take it to the best rider in Moto2, Pol is a tough act to beat, but Scott gave his best.

What an amazing first round! This really could be the best for a long while! I thought Scott rode a brilliant race, the history books will show he lost out by 0.8 but it was plain to see he settled for 2nd coming up to the last corner following a final attempt at passing Espargaro. Someone's gotta win and this time it didn't go Scotts way but I'm sure he'll win some (and lose some!)

No fat boy excuses at all, Espargaro's only move on Scott was the slipstream down the straight to make turn one first as he knew he couldn't block pass on a one line dirty track himself. Scott couldn't do the same, saw it with my own eyes. How tall is Scott now, about six two isn't it ? same as myself and I only just fit on my CB1300 X4, feet drag the ground on roundabouts so what it would be like on a little 600 I don't know.

I know that Simoncelli had the same disadvantge but he rode very recklessly to overcome it, I don't expect Scott to do the same. Ducati should take a look at his effort at Qatar and realise they signed the wrong rookie, and I'm not just crowing for my home boy either, I rate Scott very highly, he needs motogp power.
