Redding: “Better to get these issues out of the way now”

Redding: “Better to get these issues out of the way now”

Scott Redding made his debut aboard the Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Honda RC213V in Qatar this evening.

Redding finished the first MotoGP™ free practice of 2015, the only session for the premier class tonight, in 12th position on the timesheet and just 1.093s off provisional pole. The 22-year-old Briton started the session on the hard option tyres, encountering some issues under braking and with the tank cover that was designed specifically to better accommodate Redding’s height.

Scott Redding:
“We had a couple of small issues with the tank cover and the brakes, so it wasn’t the perfect start, but it was better to get these issues out of the way now. We used the hard tyre at the beginning before switching to the soft at the end, which made a big difference to the lap time. We tried a few different things today that we couldn’t try at the test here because of the rain on the final day, so this was a bit of a last test day for us really. I’m happy enough with today, because we still have room for improvement, so tomorrow the work really starts.”
