    Redding to Aprilia, Lowes out of luck.
    Fausto Gresini obviously thinks a little more of Redding than Weeksy does.

    Gutted for Sam though, he's been shit on big style this season.

    Indeed. I'm looking at Scott being 4th in FP1. Good news helps the head, clearly.
    eta - finished 6th.

    Lol have a word, just because I don't think he's the bees knees does not mean I don't think he can ride a bike. He's clearly a fast lad. But he ain't no world champ in the making

    Rumour has it that Bradders could be out on his arse. Replaced with Kalio after he beat him twice, quite easily.

    Which would be a little disappointing as Kalio has done about 10x the mileage on the bike, one of those races was on the track he's done a majority of that mileage on and it's the first season for both riders. Although even I'm disappointed with Brad's form this season, he's way off EspP.

    I'd love to know why. He's obviously a quick rider, maybe he's just not quite finding the right settings on it? Maybe his injuries at times? But I agree, you've got to be closer to your team mate for sure.

    Some people just dont click on certain bikes , some others can ride anything to its maximum

    Stoner on the Ducati compared to Rossi and Lorenzo who both have more World Championship wins on assorted biles individually than Casey ever managed ..... Dovi does well on it though not quite to Casey standard

    I accept Kallio being a world class rider on a vast test schedule also gives him a leg up

    Tom Luthi finally gets his MotoGP ride, as Morbidelli's team mate at MarcVDS. I can't think of two guys that will push that bike harder to get it up the grid.

    Tito Rabat is taking one of the Avintia rides, so only one more seat left.

    No more Baz?!

    And was (sorta) interesting to hear the BT commentary team mention about Kallio and his possible ambition to take Bradley's seat. Give what contracts are worth these days (SLowes!) one wonders...

    Well Smith did finish in front of his team mate this last race, so that is a good turn for the books...
