Redding: I've got to 'do a Marquez'

He's rejected Ducati, beaten Marc Marquez and was seemingly destined for last year's Moto2 crown until late accidents wrecked his season. Still just 21, Scott Redding could be a potential world champion in the making, as SAM TREMAYNE finds out

"Marquez has f****d it up for everyone," Scott Redding laughs. "You're meant to build into a rookie MotoGP season step by step. You're not meant to fight for the podium on your first race, or win your second.

"What he did was phenomenal, but it doesn't put pressure on me for my rookie year - it just shows what needs to be done. In my eyes, you go out there to prove a point. OK I'm not going to be on the same level bike, but I'll carry the same attitude. I won't be fazed by the occasion or who is around me."
