Scott Redding vs Pol Espargaro in MotoGP next year: who stands the better chance of winning?

With a Yamaha deal signed and delivered for Pol Espargaro, and a MotoGP deal almost certain for Scott Redding, the two front runners in Moto2 are lined up to continue their battle next year on the big bikes. But who's going to come out on top?

Not really a fair comparison to make, simply because of the bikes they will be riding.  Escargot is getting a factory Yamaha, whereas it remains to be seen what bike Scott will be riding (lets face it, it will not be that competitive).  Remember if you come from Spain then you will always get the best bike.

Escargot will get

the results because of the bike and team, but Scott is clearly the better rider.

On equal bikes...

On equal bikes, Redding would come out on top.  Unfortunately we don't know what Redding will be on and if it's worth a flip.

 This as others have suggested is a pretty stupid question, Redding is clearly the better rider however Pol is going to be on a bike that Yamaha should've offered if not as a factory bike to Cal but to Redding as a satellite bike.

Redding has consistantly improved and on a decent bike in Motogp could be a hell of a rider to watch! It's not the best bike but how about ditching Calamity Spies and putting Scott on that bike?

Not a level playing field

Yup, add my voice to those below that voted for Pol simply because he's getting full factory kit. Scott is the better rider, as far as I can tell.

Espargaro got the Tech3 seat which is the best non-factory ride going, so on that basis he will be finishing ahead of Scott.

Maybe Scott should stay put in Moto2 next season and wait for 2015 to make the move when there will be a few riders out of contract and hopefully a factory Suzuki or 2...

 Nice one MCN. Are we allowed to talk Sports again. On topic, i would have to say Pol. Because a Tech 3 Yamaha is a decent ride for a rookie at least. Both of them are great riders, but untill Scott gets a MotoGp deal confirmed? It's hard to say, i reckon Scott will suit a MotoGp bike better than Pol. But wherever Scott will end up, the Tech3 ride will be better. Word is 1 production Honda is geven away to Nakagami, wich is understandable. He is a decent rider. And HRC would want a Japanese rider on 1 of those production RCV's. IMO Dajiro Kato was the last Japanese rider that could be an Allien. Keep it friendly race fans, and a good race weekend for all:-)
