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...

I don’t normally bother joining in all the dull waffle on here droning on and on about seasons from long ago BUT when Casey Stoner swung his leg over the Ducati it was because he had been ‘let go’ by LCR Honda. He was an angry young man who at that time had absolutely everything to gain and nothing at all to lose. In those circumstances Stoner was perfect, he had a lot to prove and needed a world championship to do so. In Casey’s world the bike was almost irrelevant – I reckon he’d have won on the Suzuki or Kawasaki too, his attitude was to prove a huge point to a lot of people in 2007 and he did it.


I reckon it’s that sort of rider Ducati need to be looking for in that sort of situation – someone who has got the speed but with nothing at all to lose and a hell of a lot to gain. If someone gets a few good results on the Duke they will be noticed immediately and announced as the second coming. Proven top riders aren’t the way at Ducati – well not until the Germans sort it out and get a bike that handles in the desired way. When they do, then of course a proven top rider will be the way forward.

Options

Ducati - Factory team, 2nd tier team mate, 2nd tier bike, wishes of development and direction,

Honda - 2nd tier team, 3rd team team mate, 2nd tier bike, clear development path and route to factory bike

VDS + Yamaha - 1st tier Moto2 team, no experience of MotoGP bike/motor combination, team mate unknown, possibly lone rider with no reference point for data comparison, development path to be defined, 24 litres fuel, limited to 6 engines

VDS + Ducati - 1st tier Moto2 team, no experience of MotoGP bike/motor combination, factory supported non MSMA entry (see MotoGP article), team mate unknown, possibly lone rider with no reference point for data comparison, development through season as ducati throw money and resources to make it work, 24 litres fuel, more engines than are required.

VDS + Honda - 1st tier Moto2 team, no experience of MotoGP bike/motor combination, non MSMA entry  and ability to add thier own 24 litres fueltank if desired, team mate unknown, possibly lone rider with no reference point for data comparison, development through season TBC (bike is bought from honda therefore tank.frame etc are there for adpatation?).

 

On reflection, the VDS + Ducati route could be good, he will gain from the investment from the factory in bike development, tyres, fuel and number of engines available to him and the chance to prove himself before 2015 - if he signs a two year deal with 14 being the learner and 15 being in the factory with the bike he helped sort out...

Talking WSBK..

For the life of me..I can't understand why Ducati aren't talking to the sylph-like Chaz Davis?

Oh..hold on..he's getting battered by Bologna reject Melandri, on the same bike.

Enjoy your fish & chips bennyboy..

Exciting times...

for young Scott, like to see him on the Gresni bike personally, a great prospect for motogp, exciting rider to watch.  This season he has really transformed himself from an also ran last season, to a real contender for the Moto2 title. 

VDS45...just ignore benny the idiot, that's the best way to deal with children of his age, there is a difference between constructive comments and insulting behaviour...benny seems to have missed that bit while at school.
