Scott Redding takes 4th at Sachsenring after stunning comeback
Scott Redding was the protagonist of a stunning comeback after a bad start at today’s German GP on a Sunday characterized by unstable weather conditions that forced the riders starting with wet tires and then change their bikes as the track started to dry.
Scott missed the start turning the first corner in twentieth but quickly realizes to have a great feeling with his Ducati Desmosedici GP. The British rider recovered positions lap by lap entering the pits in seventh place with 10 laps remaining.
Back on track with intermediate tires, Scott managed to continue his comeback starting the last lap in second position. Unfortunately Crutchlow and Dovizioso (later returned to the pits and out again with slick tires) were faster in the last lap. For Scott there was the disappointment of a missed podium but also the satisfaction of an extraordinary race after his third place in Assen.
4th – Scott Redding
“If someone had told me yesterday that I could finish fourth I would not have believed. It is clear: I’m sorry for not being on the podium for the second time in a row but I am happy for this race. I made a mistake at the beginning but I felt good on the bike and started to recover position. Tyre choice? This was the best option. There is no communication with the team during the race and this makes it difficult. And then when I left the pits the track was still too wet for slicks. I thank the whole team for the great job done.”
