Scott Redding is forced to abandon Mugello race
The #ItalianGP ended with a technical problem for Scott Redding, who had to leave the race after a very promising start.
This is, in short, the highlight from the Mugello Circuit, which saw both riders of Octo Pramac Yakhnich among the players for over a third of the race.
Scott Redding started well, passing his teammate immediately to get in seventh position on lap three. The race pace was extremely positive (around 48.5) then Scott had to slow down undergoing the overtakes of Vinales and Iannone. After two laps at much lower speed (1’49.3), the British rider had to raise the white flag and get back to the pits to avoid compromising the engine of his Ducati Desmosedici GP.
DNF – Scott Redding
“I have not made a mistake and from a certain point of view, I am satisfied with my performance. I also have to thank the team because the pace was very good. The problem? I saw the red light flashing, and I tried to slow down to see if the problem could be solved. But there were no signs of improvement, so I preferred to stop to avoid damaging the engine. I am disappointed because the weekend had been good even if with some ups and downs. We will try again in Barcelona.”
