Tough Catalan GP sees Scott finishing thriteenth
The Catalan Grand Prix, held at the Montmelo circuit outside Barcelona proved a difficult race for Scott Redding. After losing three positions at the start, Scott reacted well and pulled himself back to P11.
By then though, the English rider didn’t manage to have the excellent warm-up race pace also due to the high circuit temperature. Scott closed the race in 13th position.
13th – Scott Redding
“It was a really difficult race. It was the most difficult race of the season. The high temperature of the circuit is my first enemy and when it rises above 50 degrees I can not find grip. We must surely work on tire consumption. After six laps I could not defend myself against the attacks of others. I tried to push but I did not have grip to get going. Other drivers made the race with the medium tires. I never dreamed I could put the medium because I did not get to the 10th lap”.
