Redding: “It seems a little bit easier this weekend”

Redding: “It seems a little bit easier this weekend”

After a tough Assen, a top ten result on Friday shows there’s light at the end of the tunnel for Redding.

Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Racing’s Scott Redding has not had the easiest season, the Brit struggling with bike set up in previous rounds. Tastes of the top ten, such as in Catalunya, have spurred Redding on to keep pushing and Germany looks to be another breakthrough. Friday practice ended with Redding in eighth position, setting a 1’22.167 which was half a second slower than Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) who led the day.

An improved setting on the bike allowed Redding to feel more comfortable on the bike, no longer having to fight it lap after lap. There is still work to do however, the front causing Redding some issues as it has done with all the Honda riders in 2015. It seems that Redding and the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marv VDS team have turned a corner with their factory Honda machine.

Scott Redding: “I'm quite happy with how it's been going. I can do longer runs with the bike and I'm not really fighting with it; it seems a little bit easier this weekend. I'm not sure if it's the circuit layout that's helping me but I feel comfortable and the bike doesn't feel as heavy. We've got a few things that we need to work on. It's more with the front end because, while we have some spin from the rear, it's similar for everyone. Through two corners I have quite a bit of bouncing from the front but in general I feel much better on the bike.”
