The news of the Jerez GP in 125s was of course the fab first win from Bradley Smith.
But here’s some other quotes on how the 125Brits emerged from the weekend.
Scott Redding sounded happy enough, despite finishing outside of the top ten…
“I’m pretty happy with the way things have gone, but obviously I need to find a bit more pace. I feel like I’m getting more comfortable with the chassis but this year’s bike is definitely harder to set-up.
“I’ve been having problems with rear tyre endurance because of it and haven’t really been able to find a rear tyre that lost for more than eight or nine laps because the chassis is wearing it too fast.”
Danny Webb, who came home 8th wasn’t disappointed either…
“It was a though race today. There was still a strong wind and I tried to get the maximum out of the Aprilia. The engine was very strong but I didn’t had the grip in the rear what I wanted. I tried to hold on with the group in front of me but I had difficulties passing Aergerter and took too much time.
“By the time I passed him the gap was to big to close. At the end I finisht 8th and scored good points for the championship. We are getting there and I’m confident that I can battle for a top 5 position in the future.”
Matt Holye sadly was a DNS.
