Redding: “It felt like it was going to tuck everywhere”

Redding: “It felt like it was going to tuck everywhere”

Scott Redding will start Sunday’s Spanish GP from the fourth row of the grid, after struggling with a lack of front-end grip in Jerez.

Tenth place in this morning’s free practice session secured the Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider a place in Q2, but with the temperature soaring ahead of the fourth and final free practice session, the track conditions changed significantly.

Redding struggled to find enough grip to give him the confidence in the front needed to turn a fast lap at Jerez, a problem that continued throughout qualifying despite changes to the set up of his Honda RC213V.

Scott Redding:
“I don’t really have much to say about today. The feeling with the bike was good this morning, but from the start of the final free practice there was just no grip at the front at all. As soon as I got on the edge of the tyre the front was just going away from me, in almost every corner. I just didn’t have any confidence that the tyre was going to grip at all; it felt like it was going to tuck everywhere. We made changes to the set up for qualifying, which brought a small improvement, but we need to make a much bigger step for tomorrow if we’re to get the result we’re capable of here.”
