Scott Redding concludes the opening day of practice in Austin in fourth overall and as the leading Independent Team rider.
Friday at the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas concluded with Scott Redding in an excellent fourth place. This came at a near perfect time, the Brit having endured a grueling time in Argentina, his weekend destroyed by technical problems outside his control. With all the issues behind him, the Octo Pramac Yakhnich rider immediately got to work in Austin and concluded FP1 in a solid sixth. From here he and his crew continued to push and finished the opening day of practice up in fourth thanks to a 2’04.895. Not only did this cement Redding as the leading Independent Team rider, but it also saw him finish ahead of both Movistar Yamaha MotoGP riders and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) on the factory Ducati, a great day for Redding.
Scott Redding: “It was a good practice. The feeling with the bike is very good overall, although I did not feel comfortable with the front hard tyre. I think we can work on this. With used tyres, however, things went well and this gives me confidence for the race. Tomorrow we will have some options to figure out which is the best tyre for the race. And I hope to do very well in qualifying.”
