Fast Bikes Magazine: Soooo then, Jack Miller re­places Scott Red­ding at Pra­mac, and now it tran­spires Scotty will be jump­ing on an Aprilia for 2018, yet at the ex­pense of Sam Lowes. Un­fair on Scott be­ing binned by Pra­mac? Un­fair on Sam be­ing binned by Aprilia? Great busi­ness by both Jack and Scott? All’s fair in love, war and busi­ness? What say you?! Pic: Rob Gray

Trevor Jones: I can’t un­der­stand why they do this mid sea­son. Not good for morale at all.

An­drew Hartshorn: Sam should ei­ther come back to BSB or WSBK, to a team that re­spects him and will as­sist his de­vel­op­ment and get him win­ning again. No point go­ing back to Moto2...

Alex Paulukiewicz: Think it’s harsh on Sam Lowes, let’s be honest he’s been a bit of a scape­goat this sea­son for Aprilia’s prob­lems. In his rookie sea­son too. If any­body de­serves to be binned off it’s Tito Ra­bat, he’s had a few sea­sons and looks largely un­der­whelm­ing! Kev Chal­lis: I think Pra­mac and Aprilia have been un­fair to the

Bri­tish lads, give them a dif­fer­ent bike to their team­mates yet ex­pect the same re­sults.

Josh Roesler: I’m sad to see Scott leave Pra­mac but glad he’s still in Mo­toGP, Aprilia should be good if he gets a chance to de­velop the bike with Aleix... Hope­fully Miller can shine on a Duc and keep that Aus­tralian/Du­cati legacy alive.

Jay Gau­rav Bhalla: I think it makes sense. Lowes hasn’t per­formed. It’s been an abysmal time for him. Miller has shown more po­ten­tial than Red­ding. Red­ding can be given a chance to show re­sults for Aprilia. Matty Nicholls: Scott hasn’t got over the fact he lost out on a 2017 Du­cati to Petrucci. He’s had his head up his arse since. Un­fair on his team to run a 2016 and 17 in the same team. Sam has been poor and hasn’t re­ally taken his chance so can’t com­plain.

Si­mon Gun­ton: It’s shit all round for both the Brits. Scott needs a de­cent bike in or­der for his tal­ent to come through. I’m hop­ing the Aprilia gets some test time so Scott can get some re­sults next year. Not sure what I can see jack do­ing on the Du­cati but you never know.
