Scott Redding frustrated by lack of pace in Catalan GP
The Grand Prix de Catalunya ended in frustration with many difficulties faced by Scott Redding after a very good weekend.
Both Octo Pramac Yakhnich’s riders had to deal with an high consumption of rear tyres experienced by their two Ducati Desmosedici GP.
Scott started badly as he found himself fifteenth after three turns. Despite the good feelings of the weekend, with an ever faster pace, as confirmed also by the the race pace recorded during the morning warm-up, the performance of the Ducati Desmosedici GP #45 was probably influenced by a higher track temperature compared to the one during the practice and the qualifications.
16th – Scott Redding
“It is really difficult to explain what happened with such a so high rubber consumption. We did well throughout the weekend but in the race, after a few laps, it was difficult to ride. Probably it is also due to the temperature as today it was very hot. I expected a lot more, to be honest. We have to work a lot because all Ducati struggled while I see that other manufactories have done well. I tried during the race to change my riding style to adapt it to the rubber. I did everything but there was nothing he really could to change things.”
