Positive feelings for Scott Redding on the first day of free practice at Jerez
Scott Redding and Chaz Davies proved to have arrived in the best possible conditions at Jerez for the second round of the 2020 WorldSBK season. On a Friday characterized by great heat and a surprising balance in terms of lap times, the two Aruba.it Racing – Ducati riders were consistently in the top positions in both FP1 and FP2, finishing fifth and sixth respectively in the combined standings after working on the race pace with satisfactory results.
Scott finished the FP2 in P2 setting his best lap time at the end of a virtual long run on a heavily used tyre as Chaz Davies also worked on the race distance at a convincing pace. The appointment with the time attack is scheduled for the Superpole tomorrow at 11.00 am.

“It’s been a very good day even though the conditions are really extreme, especially for the tyres. I tried to work in this direction this afternoon and we had positive results. I think that this weekend it will be very important to manage not only the tyres but also our body as we’ll have three races and they will all be particularly demanding. I am very confident though: I feel I am in the best possible condition”.
