Decision day looming for Scott Redding

Scott Redding will agree a MotoGP deal for 2014 after this weekend’s German Grand Prix at the Sachsenring. That’s the easy part. Where and what he will be riding is a decision the 20-year-old will agonise over after the Sachsenring clash, with the Moto2 world championship leader certainly not short of offers. Red-hot rumour after he narrowly failed to claim a third victory...

Dovi ain't leadind nothing this year thats why they want a rider on the way up to join them I hope to god Cal nor Scott do bgt go that way but it was very disturbing to see Del Boy wearing a Ducati shirt at Snetterton at the weekend all be it a retro trendy one , I hope Cal has words with him about that, as for your fawning over Dotti whens he going to turn things around or make Nicky look average keep tugging away as much as you like Benny boy your mans on the road to nowhere to join you

Young with plenty of balls

Get on the Ducati and ride it like a maniac like Stoner did. Only decent option.

Look what happened last time

a "Rookie" jumped on a Ducati.

I know it's a very different scenario now, but I think most doubted Casey was gonna do much more than throw the Ducati at gravel traps. How wrong can you be?

Give Scott a go, he might be just

 what they need, no preconceptions of what a MotoGP "should" be like. Just an ability to get on the thing and give it a go. Natural talent and fearlessness helps too.

What happened Last time?

I assume Pacman your talking about Stoner but what about the Current talented rookie riding the a Ducati Andrea Iannone? perhaps you have forgotten him as he has completley dropped off the map? Many people (including myself) thought last year there was a chance he could tame the Ducati for much the same reasons you think Scott could but instead he has faded into obscurity. At the moment the Duc is a career killer unfortunatley it requires a rider with unnatural talent to ride it. The only rider on the grid who maybe has a chance of taming the beast is Marquez but even then I wouldn't bet on it.

Assuming Audi can sort the bike out Ducati may be a fair shout for Redding but I can't see the bike being competitive till 2015

Because Diceman

Iannone rides like Rossi - passive smooth. He never had a hope in hell of doing anything on the Duke. Anyone who thought otherwise is a headcase.

 I concede that I may be a headcase.

 If Ducati are pinning their hopes of being competitive on discovering a new stoner-a rookie who can tame the Duc after the recent list of failures they are dreaming. The bike is unridable at the moment. So it's not a question of who can tame it, its a question of how long it will take Ducati to Sort it.

Redding won't tame the Duc and is taking a big gamble if he decides to sign for Ducati but if by 2015 they can put a competitive bike under him Redding could reap the benifits of  Audi money.

At the moment the Duc is a death or glory proposition- be the first one to get results on it and become a legend but fail and expect your career to be over.

Stay away from the Ducati

No, Redding is not Stoner so just stop it. Iannone is a better rider than Redding and the only time you see him is in the gravel trap.

Honda powered future

Gresini all the way - move to the Proddy Prototype for 2014 and be ready to take Bautistas seat in 2015 when he is finally kicked/jumps to Suzuki.

Ducati do not offer a path for the future, they dangle a hope of a better bike based upon Audi investment and ever changing structure within Corse.
