Exactly. Anyone paying attention knows his Moto 2 bike was a dog.
Tech 3 probably can't afford anywhere near what Ducati is paying Ianonne (whose own performances were pretty dodgy last year, mostly due to an under performing bike, we all know he is very fast).
What has Redding done? He shows a lot of promise and bursts of speed. His results are not spectacular. 6 podiums and 0 wins in Moto 2.
Espargaro will be very good when he moves to Moto GP, if there is a good bike available for him. He will prove his mettle this season with the whole world expecting him to win the Moto 2 title. He was awesome last season.
