Redding: “I couldn’t get the rear tyre to work”

Redding: “I couldn’t get the rear tyre to work”

Scott Redding explains why he struggled at the start of the #ItalianGP before staging a comeback that saw him cross the line in 11th.

An aggressive first lap from the 22-year-old moved him into the early fight for the top 10 from 17th on the grid. But all of Redding’s hard work was undone when he ran wide at the first turn on lap two and dropped down the order to 19th. Quickly back into his rhythm, Redding set about charging back towards the top 10 when a lack of rear grip and agility with his Honda RC213V machine through Mugello’s series of fast changes of directions halted his challenge.

Scott Redding: “I'm disappointed because the race obviously didn’t pan out as I’d expected. After the Warm-Up I thought I could be fighting for the top 10 and I made a good start and made up some places on the first lap. But on lap two I went deep into the first corner and lost all the places I’d gained. I couldn’t get the rear tyre to work at the beginning to go with the group in front. And the track was quite greasy and the bike felt heavy and I was struggling to change direction. I need to improve but we will continue working hard and sticking together to help me be more competitive.”
