Scott sixth on complex opening day of #ITAWorldSBK
Scott Redding had to deal with a technical problem in FP1 and a penalty in FP2 but still managed to close the day at two-tenths of a second from the hypothetical front row.
Due to the penalty imposed by the Race Direction for not stopping in front of the flag after the technical issue in FP1, Scott Redding was forced to skip the first 20 minutes of FP2. Despite this, the British rider managed to complete 13 laps with an encouraging race pace.

“It was definitely not the Friday I was expecting to start the weekend well. Unfortunately, I had that technical problem and then the penalty. I went to the race direction and I apologized for coming into the pits despite the flag. We were not able to complete the program that we planned, and this is the reason why I do not feel to be in the best conditions. Tomorrow we will have to improve a lot to be more competitive”.
