11th – Scott Redding
“Unfortunately I started badly and in the first laps I struggled a lot as I could not find rear grip. I could not push and I could not defend myself against the attacks of other riders and a contact with Baz made me turn very wide. I tried to stay focused to recover and in the end I managed to gain many positions. All in all today’s race did not go bad but it’s clear that I could do better”.
