MarcVDS Moto star Scott Redding is becoming increasingly frustrated by the lack of a minumum weight limit in the series as he just had to watch lighter riders motor past him in the spec-engined series at Misano.
The Gloucestershire rider is head and shoulders taller than the likes of jockey-sized series leader, and about half as wide again, but his team is unable to make up the weight difference with extra power as the championship employs a control Honda engine.
"I should have been on the podium, no question. I was fast all weekend but, today, when it counted, the pace just wasn't there. The short race should have suited me, and I was quick to find a good rhythm, but every time I passed someone they'd just drive past me on the straight and I couldn't retake them in the next turn, because they had the speed that I was missing," said Redding.
"It's getting more and more frustrating now. For me it's stopped being about who's the best rider in Moto2, because physical size seems to be more important than skill. We need to find something to offset the disadvantage, and we need to find it fast."
