Scott Redding took advantage of an excellent start in today’s Grand Prix of Thailand, where he gained 7 positions during the first lap.
The British rider then rode a consistent race, just missing the points zone by a few tenths, but expressing satisfaction after the race in terms of his feeling with the RS-GP on the Thai track.
“To be honest, I am happy with the race today. On the first turn I didn’t took any particularly high risk, maintaining my usual braking point, but I managed to close the line well and immediately gain a few positions. Overall, the bike worked well today. I didn’t have any particular difficulties, despite the truly demanding conditions. We struggled in qualifying, but this morning in the Warm Up session we managed to find an improvement which will hopefully help me in the upcoming races as well.”
