Disappointment for Scott Redding in Brno
Scott, starting from the front row of the grid, lost places from the start, but had forced his way through to fourth as he looked to make up more places on the entry to turn two when he lost the front of his Kalex Moto2 machine and crashed out of the race. The 19-year-old Briton was bitterly disappointed, after running at the front all weekend, but is determined to make amends next time out at Misano.
Scott will complete a one-day test at the Vallelunga circuit in Italy, before heading to Misano for round 12 of the Moto2 World Championship in three weeks time.
“I’m gutted. I’ve been fast all weekend, in the wet and dry, and I know I was on for a podium today,” said Scott. “The bike hooked up a bit quick off the line and I had to back off to bring the front wheel down, which lost me a few places, but I squeezed back through at turn one. I saw Corsi in front of me and didn’t want to get held up while the front group got away, so I was looking to put in a pass at turn two when the front just tucked with no warning. I held it up on my knee almost to the gravel trap, but it just wouldn’t come back and down I went. I was no faster into that turn than I’ve been all weekend, so I don’t really know why the front tucked this time. Like I said, I’m gutted, but I’ll be back on it at Misano. In the meantime, congratulations to Livio Loi on his first Rookies race win today. After his second place yesterday it was only a matter of time before he stood on the top step of the podium.”
