Scott Redding, after a weekend of increasing his confidence with the RS-GP, rode an intelligent race at Montmelo in today’s Catalan GP. After finding a good pace, he maintained a very regular rhythm which allowed him to move up several positions and, also aided by a few crashes, finished the race in a good 12th place.
“It wasn’t a bad race. Everyone was having trouble with the grip, whereas for me the situation was similar to other races. Generally, throughout the entire weekend I have felt better in the afternoon in conditions similar to the ones today. We changed the tyre choice just before the start and today it was the right move. I maintained my pace for all 24 laps, doing almost the entire race behind Pol Espargaró. I would have tried to overtake him toward the end, but a bit of chattering at the front, the same as I had felt this morning before crashing, convinced me to hold off and bring home the result.”
