Scott starts from the eighth row in Valencia finale

 In News

After yesterday’s practice sessions for the season-ending Valencia GP when he had shown signs of competitiveness, Scott Redding ran into some difficult qualifiers today and in the end had to settle for the eighth row with a time of 1’35.171. However, given his pace in the wet, the conditions forecast for tomorrow could put him in play for a good performance.

“In the wet we were able to find a bit of improvement, but with the track drying out, I didn’t have the same good feeling as yesterday. In the grip changes, the bike gets twitchy and I lost confidence, which is a factor that limited me quite a bit in qualifying. The race should be in the rain and that could help us, although it won’t be easy starting from behind.”
