Scott qualifies thirteenth for Malaysian GP

 In News

Scott Redding will start from the first spot on the fifth row of the grid for tomorrow’s Malaysian Grand Prix at Speang, after doing the thirteenth best time in Q1.

The English rider, always at ease on a wet track, expected more of the day, but had to reckon with a lack of grip and a bit of difficulty getting the RS-GP to corner.

“Despite the thirteenth place, I expected even more from qualifying. I have always been strong in the wet, but we still haven’t managed to solve our problems. I struggle to turn and I am lacking grip. After a few laps, I stress the front tyre too much and that keeps me from finding my pace. We’ll try to find a solution in anticipation of the race which will be a difficult one.”
