Scott takes twelfth in difficult Americas GP

 In News

The third round of the 2017 season of MotoGP ended with Scott Redding finishing in twelfth – a position that allows the English rider to confirm himself in the Top 10 (9th place) of the World Championship standings.

Scott’s race was not an easy one by any means, however. A crash in the first lap of the warm-up probably made him lose a bit of confidence, as the result the English wasn’t able to find the same feeling he had during the free practices. Plus, from the middle of the race a strong left-shoulder pain forced him to tighten his teeth and bring home four precious points for the standings

“It was a very tough race today. We choose to go with the hard tyre but I did not find the feeling. Maybe I should have tried the medium but now it’s too late for regrets. The problem is that I was unable to be competitive from the early laps. I had no traction in corner exit that’s why I had to work hard in braking probably stressing too much the front tire. We have some work to do. We must now focus on Jerez”.
