Scott Redding to Ride a Gresini Honda, Announcement Imminent

The Italians at MotoBlog have been all ears in the MotoGP paddock at Brno, and their ears were the first to hear a small indiscretion referring to the Moto2 rider Scott Redding throwing a leg over a production racer Honda as a member of Fausto Gresini's team for 2014 and possibly, 2015.

While the official announcement is so far missing, the same source mentions that the most likely place and time will be this weekend at Silverstone, home race for the Brit.

Redding is currently leading the Moto2 world ranking with 167 points, a hefty gap from his actual and future rival, Pol Espargaro, recently confirmed at Tech3 Yamaha replacing the Ducati Factory-bound Cal Crutchlow.

Remains to be seen which of the actual GO&FUN Honda Gresini riders will be laid off. Honestly, we doubt Mr. Gresini will be willing to lose Alvrao Bautista. The Spaniard has just scored a 5th position at Brno, and is currently in the 8th place in the provisional standings, whereas the rookie Starring is well behind, 25th out of the 26 riders. Cometh Silverstone weekend!
