Scott Redding finished today’s Aragon GP in sixteenth place. Complaining of problems with grip in braking – especially at the rear, although trying to avoid frustration and giving 100% in focussing on making the most of what he was able to do, he finished just outside the points zone.
“From a riding point of view, I gave 100%, minimising mistakes compared to the Misano race. I managed to stop the bike a bit better and I didn’t give in to the frustration, trying to keep things smooth. The fundamental problem was the lack of grip at the rear and the difference between me and the other riders was truly clear. All I could do was wait for the pace to drop in order to recover ground, but without really being able to attack. The limitation of grip to the rear is something we need to solve. Today the bike was braking right and it was turning, but I was never able to count on a good feeling with the rear tyre.”
