Scott Redding confident for Argentine race after tricky qualifying
There were positive sensations for Scott Redding in the mixed conditions on the Qualifying day in Argentina, who lapped very fast in a dry FP3 session (with the hard tire) skimming the direct qualification to Q2 (-71 milliseconds). The British rider felt at ease in wet conditions also, ending up FP4 one tenth of a second behind the Top 5.
In Q1, however, Scott was not able to find the ideal conditions to beat the competition of Dani Pedrosa and Valentino Rossi, finishing in 15th position with a best time of 1’50.048.

“It has been a positive day. I am very happy with how things went in FP3. The feeling with the bike was really good since the start and this was the most important goal to achieve today. I started well even in FP4 with wet conditions, then I felt some problems on the rear. I tried to do my best in Q1 but the conditions were really difficult. All things considered I’m confident for the race”.
