Redding: “The next step needs to come from me”

Redding: “The next step needs to come from me”

Scott Redding is hoping to find a solution to the problems that have been plaguing him since the start of the season at the Catalan GP.

Redding dropped to 14th in the championship standings after a disappointing and frustrating ride to 11th place last time out in Mugello, after struggling once again with a lack of rear edge grip in the race. The fact that he was one of only two factory Honda riders to finish was little consolation to the Briton.

Scott Redding:
“In Barcelona we need to continue trying to improve, increasing the pace in free practice so that I go straight into Q2 and have the chance to qualify higher up the grid. In the race I need to get a better feeling for the tyres during the early laps, especially when the track temperature is high, because there is a lot of movement and it’s difficult to understand where the limit is. I think we’re close with the set up of the bike; yes, there are a few issues, the lack of edge grip for example means we’re losing time out of every turn, but I still think the next step needs to come from me. We can start looking again at the set up once we’re doing the same pace as the other factory Hondas, until then I need to focus on what I can do to improve our performance, both in qualifying and in the race.”
