French Grand Prix DNF for Scott Redding

 In News

For Scott Redding it was a bad day at the French GP at Le Mans today due to a technical problem forced retirement for the Brit after 6 laps.

Scott got a great start, gaining soon two positions and then getting to 10th place thanks to a brillant race pace. In the first part of the race Scott was lapping with the same lap-time of the riders in front, showing to have found a good feeling with his Ducati Desmosedici GP.

The pace was good and would allow him to fight for a place close to the fifth position. After six laps a technical problem unfortunately forced him to retire.

“I am very sorry for how things went. It is not an easy moment, but certainly I can not think what would have happened in Argentina and in France without these problems. At the same time I must admit that the feelings in the first six laps were good. I had a good race pace and the feeling was good even during the warm up. I want to restart from these sensations, with the knowledge that we were on the right direction and it was only bad luck.”
