Redding: “We have shown we have potential”

Redding: “We have shown we have potential”

Scott Redding ended the first day of the #QatarTest in fifth, confident he can build on the potential he has shown.

Redding was amongst the quickest riders for most of the day, and seemed immediately at home on the Losail track with the GP15. The British rider completed 46 laps, setting a best time of 1’56.213, which was good enough to secure fifth on the timesheets.

This meant he was 0.761s off the pace of the quickest man on Wednesday, Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP), but he was less than a hundredth of a second behind the factory Ducati of Andrea Iannone in fourth.

The second day of the Qatar test begins at 16:00 Local Time on Thursday.

Scott Redding: “It's been a good day although the track conditions were not the best. We did not do too many laps but are satisfied with our work today. In the end I tried the second bike and the lap time I managed was was almost the same compared to bike one. Last season Ducati had a great race here so I'm very confident. Today we have shown we have potential and this potential can grow. Goals for tomorrow? I wish I could improve my lap time and stay in the Top 6 which is the goal of the season.”
