Scott Redding unfazed by shrinking title advantage

British rider Scott Redding says he is not overly concerned at seeing a big Moto2 world championship advantage cut to just 23-points after he struggled to a season worst result of seventh in Germany last weekend. The 20-year-old experienced severe Dunlop rear tyre issues in the 29-lap race and with pre-season title favourite Pol Espargaro finishing third, Redding’s advantage in the...

It's not just about 1 year...

''Why is a rider of Redding's size even considering a ride on an under-powered, production Gresini Honda - surely that's the reason why he's suffering in Moto2?''

I wouldn't exactly class leading the Moto2 world championship as ''suffering''. I think a year on the customer Honda bike (which lets be honest is unlikely to be a complete dog) and then a move to a prototype with a team with heaps of MotoGP experience would be a good path for Scott to take, especially if such a move came with HRC support. Obviously if a prototype (other than a career killing Ducati) were to become available to him for next year then he would have to seriously consider it. Doubters can think whatever they wish, personally I think Scott is going to adapt really well to the bigger bikes.

Honda customer bike

From Crash.net Q&A session:


''Crash.net:
And it would be a full pneumatic valve engine, rather than the spring valves which Honda plan to use in their customer bike…

Colin Edwards:
Don't let the spring valve aspect of the Honda scare you though, that thing's gonna be fast as hell. I've heard some numbers and lap times and compared to the prototypes, there's not much difference. They're pretty much on par.

Spring valves against pneumatic valves are sure a limitation rev wise, but if you sort the power out and put it where you want it you can ride valve springs.

Crash.net:
So you think the customer Honda will be competitive?

Colin Edwards:
Oh I know it's going to be competitive. As far as winning the world championship, probably not, but as far as being able to compete day in day out for a top 6 or 8 position, absolutely.

Honda aren't going to start any race program which isn't serious, you know that. ''

Sounds plausible to me, Colin Edwards is one of the most experienced guys around and he usually says it as it is. Also are the mighty Honda really going to embarrass themselves by putting a rubbish bike on the grid, why would they be interested in doing that? I suspect Colin is bang on with his assessment, that bike is not going to set the world alight but it will be there or thereabouts and would make a decent tool for Scott's learning year in the premier class. Or course a 2 year HRC deal on a works prototype would be nice but that doesn't appear to be option at the moment.
