After moving teams to the Bonovo BMW team Scott Redding has made some bold claims ahead of the 2024 World Superbike season.
There was a lot of talk that Scott Redding would leave BMW for the 2024 WorldSBK season. However, the British rider decided to stay with BMW but move to the Bonovo BMW squad.
In his two years with the German manufacturer Redding has stood on the podium three times. But ahead of the 2024 season the 30-year-old is confident that BMW will be able to push on and have a 'breakthrough' year.
"It has been great, the team welcomed me like I have never had before," said Redding. "Which has been really nice, quite surprising actually.
"It is just a nice environment, everyone is very chill, it all very compact everyone talks to each other even between the two sides of the garage, like everyone is communicating which is actually really nice.
"Already I feel better suited here which is a nice thing to go into the winter knowing what I have got. Bike wise I have got the same bike.
"It felt the same really, just different colours and I have got different people, I have a different crew chief and crew but I have got along with them really well. Sometimes it feels a little bit awkward, but to be fair I do not have that at all so I am really happy."
After speaking about his new team and his new surroundings Redding went on to speak about what he thinks next season will be like for himself and the BMW riders.
"I think next year we will start to see the breakthrough of BMW to where they should be and hopefully we can start to get on the podium more.
"I look forward to this year because I feel there is stuff that I can work on and push on and build on which will start to come out next year. Then hopefully we can start to see the improvement and fight for podiums because I believe that is where I need to be and where the bike needs to be."
