Scott Redding rode his best race yet astride the RS-GP on the historic Dutch Assen track today.
Starting from the sixth row, Scott was seventeenth at the end of the first lap. Finding a good pace, he moved up through the pack until catching up, and on one occasion overtaking, his teammate.
The fourteenth place finish, 16 seconds behind the winner, is a good result that shows the progress the English rider has made in the last two races.
“I am happy especially with the consistency I was able to maintain in the race. We made the right tyre choice. After warm up, I considered the hard option on the rear, thinking about duration, but after lapping well with the soft in practice, it was smart to ride the race with that one as well. I had fun, staying close to Pol and Aleix and managing to fend on Pedrosa’s attacks. We worked well, calmly and without pressure and the results are clear. It is a small step forward. Now we need to continue in this direction.”
