Redding: “I am very sorry for how things went”

 Redding: “I am very sorry for how things went”

Another disappointing weekend as Scott Redding’s race in Le Mans is ended prematurely by technical problems.

During testing before the 2016 season, Scott Redding was brimming with confidence as he and his GP15 were pushing the factory riders. The Brit was excited to ride a motorbike again and chomping at the bit to get out on track. Unfortunately a number of issues with the bike and tyres have since seen Redding struggle to deliver on his potential, scoring points just twice. Le Mans had been on track to be another top ten finish for Redding until technical issues forced him to retire after just six laps. Clearly frustrated, the Brit is hoping that Mugello, Ducati's home round, will offer better lucky.

Scott Redding: “I am very sorry for how things went. It is not an easy moment, but certainly I cannot think what would have happened in Argentina and in France without these problems. At the same time I must admit that the feelings in the first six laps were good. I had a good race pace and the feeling was good even during the warm up. I want to restart with the knowledge that we were on the right direction and it was only bad luck.”
