Sepang MotoGP: Rabat takes Moto2 win

Esteve Rabat won the Malaysian Moto2 race after topping every session over the weekend. Rabat took the top step of the podium ahead of his team-mate and championship hopeful Pol Espargaro in second. Swiss rider Thomas Luthi completed the podium in third. Brit and chainmpionship leader Scott Redding lost out on sixth place at the final corner to Frenchman Johann Zarco. The...

Hang on

 Scott is still winning this championship and Pol (Mr consistent) Espargero is second. IMO its going all the way to valencia and I think Mr Rabat is going to be there or there abouts as well. I think Scott will be fast at P.I and up the front, Motegi will be Rabat again and Valencia will be anyone's because if its level pegging there is going to be one hell of a scrap for the title. There is a lot of laps to be done before the fat lady sings and anything can and probaberly will happen. I think Scott is going to do it, He has a good team with a good sports psychologist with him that has turned the lad around. WANT IT. BREATHE. Go Scott

 

If that accident had not happened Scott would have crossed the line on the first lap fourth, that would have made a huge difference to his title hopes.

 I think he has the better deal with Grisini Honda than Tech 3.

Pol's good but didn't Mr Dylan in a different guise profess that being 2nd to mm made pol the WC elect for 2013?so Scotty is at least on par or he wouldn't have shown pol the way all year so far. physics doesn't seem many people here's strong point:130bhpand an 8kilo disadvantage makes for long straight disadvantage as witnessed,when on a twister with corners,not straights, Scotty's up there. with a customer Honda with 250 odd bhp Scott height will be his limiting factor,I.e. can he tuck in? only one person over hypes riders abilities, pol will be WC but it won't count for much in the big class unless you end up on a works Honda or yam, those are the facts.will pol get cals bike or Bradleys is another factor although pol has youth on his side(Scotts 2 years younger so a better bet to any factory). why people think that qualifying somehow negates Scotts straight disadvantage puzzles me too, it's the same track they use on race day isn't it?

Speed charts on motogp.com

reveal Scott was far from being disadvantaged by a lack of top speed - compare top speeds/race day average speed between Luthi and Redding  - a couple of km/h difference and that's it.

I'm pleased though that Scott realises that the best way to protect a championship lead is to win races - ".....Now we need to go to Australia and win. At this point in the championship, with just three races remaining, it has to be all or nothing. We've lost points at the last three races, so now is the time to put it on the line and win again."

A Moto2 championship win may not be needed to secure his future but its got to help mentally knowing he can close a championship out under all the pressure it brings.

Win Scott. Win.

Go Scotty....

the damage limitation exercise is not working anymore....you have to get out there and win.  Let's hope for a great race at the weekend.  It would also be great if there were a non spanish title winner in the motogp series, here's hoping.

Best of luck...
