Redding: “We need to be realistic about what we achieved”

Redding: “We need to be realistic about what we achieved”

A debut podium hasn’t changed Scott Redding’s expectations; his goals for the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon remain realistic.

Treacherous conditions in Misano saw Scott Redding bounce back from a crash early in the race to score his first MotoGP™ podium.  Both he and the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Racing team were elated that all their hard work throughout the year was rewarded with an almost unbelievable third place finish. Redding is staying realistic for the Aragon GP, his first aim to simply make it straight into Q2 on Saturday before pushing for a top ten finish

The Brit’s best finish at the Spanish circuit came in 2012 when he finished third in the Moto2™ race, battling with the likes of Marquez and Pol Espargaro. Aboard the Open Honda in 2014, Redding managed a respectable tenth place finish. On several occasions in 2015 the Marc VDS man has struggled to match his performance from his rookie campaign, the factory Honda proving a difficult beast to handle for all Honda riders this season. At almost every round Redding and his team have been able to make small steps forward with the setting of the bike.

Scott Redding: “It was a great feeling to stand on the MotoGP podium for the first time in Misano, but we need to be realistic about what we achieved there. The conditions were probably the most difficult any of us have ever raced in and I was lucky enough to be able to take advantage with the two bike changes. We will approach this weekend in Aragon with the same goals as always; to be inside the top ten in free practice, go straight into QP2 on Saturday afternoon and then push for a top ten finish in the race on Sunday.”
