Redding: “I'm losing a lot in the first sector”

Redding: “I'm losing a lot in the first sector”

Scott Redding struggled on the first day of Free Practice at the Motul TT Assen, finishing down in fourteenth.

It has been a difficult campaign so far in 2015 but overall Redding once again felt that the bike was close to being as he needs it, with no major issues with regard to set up The only problem that he had in the session was a minor one with chatter in just two corners. 

With rain threatening throughout the weekend it was a much more competitive opening day than usual, with all riders keen to set a fast time to finish inside the top ten. On his final stint of the day Redding was able to improve his times and move towards the top half of the timesheets, but further improvements will be needed tomorrow if he is to make it through to the QP2 shootout.

Scott Redding: “I don't really know why we weren’t higher up the order because my feeling with the bike is pretty good, but the lap time doesn’t reflect that. It feels like the lap time should be there but it's not. We had a bit of chatter in a couple of corners but that’s not the issue. It doesn't feel bad in many areas. I'm losing a lot in the first sector and I don't know why, but at least we know where to look to find the time.”
