Became a fan after being at the Portuguese GP a few years ago.
Bit grey cold and damp, but we watched every session. About a dozen folk scattered about a stand across from the pit exit on the Friday early morning. GP2's come gently out apart from yer man Redding. Monster stand up wheelie! Hero!
Did this every session, wheelie ,look over to the crowd. Won himself plenty of local support too.
Also remember him taking the piss/clowning about (like any other daft boy) to that BBC presenter on live telly. Human and having fun. No robots!
Seems he can race a bit too. Chuffed he has what would appear to be a decent big bike ride next season.
Fingers crossed for the world title.
