Who's the greatest current British GP star?

It's been a long time since british stars have been shining so brightly in MotoGP. Cal Crutchlow is the hot property at the minute, with factory teams fighting over him, Bradley Smith is impressing as a rookie and a best-ever 6th place, and Scott Redding is on his way to becoming the first British champion since Sheene. So who's your money...

Are They

Are factory teams really fighting to sign Cal, sorry i must have missed that in the press, whilst i'd love for him to do well & get a factory ride, i don't think that's quite the case at the moment.

I'd like to see him get a ride for Suzuki in 2015 & be right up there from the start of the season taking places away from Honda & Yamaha & being a preverbial pain in the arse for them!

odd question

Since there is only one of them doing well in the senior class at the moment, it's kinda a non-question really....

Suzuki or Yamaha?

Cal will hang onto his tech 3 ride for 1 more year i reckon but i doubt Suzuki will be able to snap him up what with Vale's seat opening up. That is if Rossi gets over himself and buggers off somewhere else to let someone else have a go.

Scott Redding is on the way up and looks like the business.

Stats say it all

This season which of them has won two races, scored points in every race,  has the most podiums and is leading their class championship?

Bradley Smith?

No doubt he has some talent, but what is he doing in MotoGP. He is nowhere near good enough. Never won anything in Moto2 and a few lucky wins in 125

Waste of a ride

Steady on!

Greatest? Isn't it a bit early to be using that just yet? Best, sure but are any of these three truly great? Give it a couple of years at least.

British talent

How could it be ANYBODY but Cal? Methinks that Redding and Smith are pretty evenly matched and, until this year it seems, smith was the more mature rider. I can't help but, at best, rather ignore Redding because he seems the cock.

hmm

Scott comes off as a twat and my god the voice... Smith is a balding ginger with a squeaky voice who is out of his depth. Cal is the only likable one who has proven himself, he just needs to stop crashing and convert qualifying results into race results more consistently.

Redding and Smith both  show great potential, but Crutchlow's mixing it with the best right now. He gets my vote until / if that situation changes.
