Interesting discussion going down on twitter

 

im going to pin @motomatters and @birtymotogp down here. Scott Redding, 2015, where & what....

 

@ValentinoMossy @motomatters gresini. Bloody auto correct

 

@birtymotogp @motomatters if you had to bet a fiver, which team?

 

@ValentinoMossy @motomatters tough one. I know gresini informed his crew in Brno that things looking bleak. Big test of VDS ambition coming?

 

@birtymotogp @ValentinoMossy what Matt said. I'd say 60/40 Marc VDS/Gresini. No question Marc VDS goes to MotoGP if Gresini drop RC213V

 

@birtymotogp @ValentinoMossy satellite Hondas are never available. When one does become available, you have to seize the opportunity.

 

@motomatters @birtymotogp lot of ifs/buts but if MVDS get rcv, are they tied to showa/nissin or dump that and run ohlins/brembo

 

@ValentinoMossy @motomatters if VDS get it, it is bye bye Nissin and Showa. They know what redding wants and will never go against him

Ducati monitoring Scott Redding's future situation

 

Ducati is keeping a close eye on Scott Redding’s MotoGP future, with the British rider’s 2015 plans up in the air.

Redding was expected to be riding a factory Honda RC213V for the Gresini squad next season, having signed a two-year deal with the former 125GP world champion’s Italian-based team.

But Gresini is struggling to finance a deal to lease the RC213V again next season and he has been given a deadline at the British Grand in Silverstone next weekend to confirm his plans to HRC.

HRC has already spoken to the Aspar squad about possibly taking over the lease of the RC213V, having started an association with the Japanese factory in 2014 by buying production RCV1000R machinery for Nicky Hayden and Hiroshi Aoyama.

The high profile Marc VDS Racing squad is also understood to be waiting in the wings if Gresini is unable to finance an RC213V deal

 

 

Redding impressed Ducati when he tested a Desmosedici at Mugello in 2012 and Bologna factory boss Paolo Ciabatti told MCN: “We heard that there was some uncertain situation and while we don't want to interfere with Fausto or with Honda, we let the management of Scott know that if they can’t find an agreement we would be interested to talk to them. We like Scott. He has proven to be a good rider this season and also for what he has done in the past. We are waiting, as we know he as an agreement with Gresini. We said in case he was looking for different opportunities then let us know.”

also

 

That Grand Prix Silverstone is a date that Scott Redding has marked in red on his calendar. Not only because it is his home race but also because there could decide its future . Everything is linked to the Gresini team that, as we explained , in these days is trying to find the necessary budget for the next season.

If the kid and his management team have got any snese and any kind of interest in Scott's future, they will ignore Ducati.

 

That bike and team are a plague on moster riders, and at the very least you only go there on your way down.
