Scott Reddin criticizes MotoGP access system: “Too much depends on money”
Scott Redding currently races in the Superbike World Championship, but he’s already had a not-so-great experience in MotoGP – which ended in 2018. And the rider has some criticism of the current landscape of motorcycling’s premier class. .
In an interview with Gazzetta Motori, the current WSBK rider said that riders must have a certain minimum time in the access classes before entering MotoGP: “Personally, I think the categories must be thought of as in the other sports: at least two years in Moto3, at least another two years in Moto2, then you can do five, six or even eight years in MotoGP, earn money and finish your career. has riders making their debut in Moto3 and the following year they can already be in MotoGP.It’s not fair to the others who have built themselves over the years.
For Redding, money dictates a lot of the course of the runners: “I think a lot depends on the money: consider an experienced runner like Marc Marquez, to take an example and say a random number, with a salary of two million dollars. euro per year.” On the other hand, thinking of a young runner, the salary will be 200,000 euros per year. It’s a big saving. Are riders who made it to the premier class this year like Remy Gardner under too much pressure and if they don’t do well expect them to stay there? They will hire the next one and his career will not be over, but he must try to relaunch himself elsewhere.
Disagreeing with what is happening, the Briton argues that before entering MotoGP riders should progress to get a solid career where they don’t have to stop after a few years and then reinvent themselves.
