Honda and Ducati confirm Scott Redding interest

Honda and Ducati have admitted being seriously interested in Scott Redding for 2014, with the British rider in talks about a new production RC213V ride or Desmosedici prototype berth next season. Talks between Redding’s representatives and the Gresini Honda squad were first revealed in today’s (Wednesday) issue of Motor Cycle News and started after the 20-year-old claimed a record-breaking victory in...

Pedrosa

Can I throw into the mix this thought. Pedrosa is only riding this year because Stoner retired, if he does not win the title this year will Honda want to get rid of him again ? Leaving a spare Repsol seat for Cal ?

Ha, ha, ha. There's some funny fellows here.

Cal over Pedro??!! On what basis? One of the consistently winningest riders in the history of the class over an occasional podium man? Apply some logic!

And as Pacey says a M1 engine in a completely unknown chassis over a factory or even satellite Duke??!!

If the HRC proddie racer is all it's cracked up to be this is an option worth consideration. Let's for a moment presume it's oh say 30hp down on the RCV213. That would still be 30hp stronger than an ART - and look what Espargaro is doing on that thing.

Japanese factory or satellite bikes look shut-out for Scott. Ducati is his best option to my mind. He's young, fearless and oozing talent. He won't be fazed by the big bad Duke. In fact I believe he's one of the few who could really grab the thing by the scruff of its neck and rag it the way it used to, and needs to, be. Scott will adapt and thrive. Bye, bye Nicky. Thanks for the (very occasional) memories.

I'm with you Nostro..

..except for one primary difference. Call me old fashioned, but loyalty goes a long way in my book and I think Hayden deserves a decent crack at the whip on a sorted bike. I don't particularly see him as a yes man, but I do think he's shown a level of commitment and corporate integrity that is sadly lacking in modern day sport. Reward him with another year and give Redding Spies's bike..

Stefan is on an almost factory bike, Alvaro on a Showa testing bike. Scott is better than each of them. Lets hope he gets the LCR ride. Honda seem to have alot of faigth in Bradl? Scott can do better, no doubt at all!

Hayden

I'd be surprised if Ducati got rid of Hayden, he's their way in to the most lucrative market there is. He's likable, liked, and still pretty fast. He's also a former world champion, which is worth quite a lot to the average Joe. As a bonus, he doesn't whine and he's extremely loyal.

Don't underestimate Ducati's desire to be big in the USA, or their gratitude to Nicky for selling them a shitload of bikes.
