Superb seventh for Scott Redding at Phillip Island
The Octo Pramac Yakhnich’s riders are proving to have a good feeling in the GP overseas and gain the second consecutive double Top 10 after the one recorded in Japan.
The Sunday of the Michelin Australian Grand Prix was marked by the sun, that allowed riders to lap in dry conditions for the first time over the weekend.
Scott Redding lost two positions off the start but did very well to keep focus and remain glued to the Top 10.
The race was exciting and saw the two Octo Pramac Yakhnich’s riders fighting especially with the factory Honda of Hayden and the landlord Miller, swapping positions several times.
Five laps to go, after he managed to take the head of the group, Scott began to lap faster by building a small advantage, which allowed him to end in seventh place.
7th – Scott Redding
“I am happy with this result because during the morning warm up I was not able to find a good feeling. We changed a lot and took risks that have paid. Unfortunately, I have not had a good start but I was calm, I put my head down and I just thought to ride. After the first five laps I started to get a good rhythm and this has given me a lot of confidence. At the end, the seventh place is very positive.”
