Redding to Pramac Ducati for 2015

I'm excited to see how this is going to unfold actually. But do you think he'll improve his positions on the grid by switching?

Marc VDS team principal Michael Bartholemy is also Redding's personal manager.
He said Redding wanted to go to Ducati, so he made the deal happen.
Now the Marc VDS motogp ride is open for Rabat

It's hard to tell. I won't go as far as saying the RC213V is a POS, but it is an incredibly complex bike to master. Cal has been struggling this year and he is an experienced GP rider. Redding did pretty well last year with no pressure on a fairly basic bike, but with a new team and him trying to learn all the idosynchrosies of a bike as complex as the Honda, I think he's just done in mentally.

A change to Pramac will boost his confidence, but he'll be on a concession designed 2015 bike which will be slower than the 2016 Honda, so yes I think he'll be happier but won't be doing much better.

It all depends how it goes at the factory team then, because he WILL be fighting with Petrucci for Dovi's seat at some point.

And they all achieve nothing no matter the bike.

Give me a factory RCV and i will run with Marquez. 2014
Give me a factory Ducati and i can beat Danilo Petrucci. 2015
I can only imagine what his demands will be this time next year.
Scott is living off a fluke win on his home track from what 7-8 years ago that got his name in the record books. I dont think he is in the same class of rider as even Crutchlow, much less the top 4. He always has an excuse and the next race is always when he is going to turn it around. As far as Rabat getting his ride, i think that is a mistake as well. A career Moto2 rider who took advantage of a field of inexperienced talent to win a title, same thing Zarco is doing this year. If i were Honda, i would buy Rins out of his Moto2 deal before i would waste a year fucking around with Rabat. Maybe even baby Marquez. After a very slow start, he has seen the light and found the speed to run at the front. I expect him to progress quickly from here on out.
