Redding: “It’s tough out there and we still need to do work”

Redding: “It’s tough out there and we still need to do work”

Scott Redding took a big step during this evening’s third MotoGP™ free practice session to finish 12th and within 0.6s of Marc Marquez.

The Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider bettered his target lap time as the session drew to a close, however, with the top 17 riders all within a second, it wasn’t enough to elevate Redding higher than 12th on the timesheet.

Scott Redding:
“The first session was really difficult, because the feeling I’d had with the front here at the test simply wasn’t there today. The problem was made worse by a lack of rear grip; whatever I tried I just couldn’t seem to improve. For the second session we made some fairly big changes to the bike and, straight away, the feeling was there again. In some corners the problems we’d had in the morning were completely eliminated, while in others they were only reduced, but the feeling overall was much better. My target was to do a 1’55.5 so I was happy enough when I got down to a 1’55.4, until I saw my position on the timesheet! It’s tough out there and we still need to do some work tomorrow, especially in the last sector where I’m losing four tenths in just three corners.”
