DNF for Scott in Donington race 1
It was a Saturday to forget for Scott Redding on the Donington Park Circuit (Great Britain), which was wet in the morning and then almost dry before Race-1.
The Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Team rider was never able to find the right feeling with his Ducati Panigale V4R, and therefore was unable to fight for the top positions of the ranking in qualifying. The same difficult circumstances recurred in Race-1.
After a very complex FP3 – also due to the heavy rain – Scott managed to limit the damage in the Superpole, finishing in sixth place, although with a consistent gap from the front row.
Race start for Scott not particularly powerful, and sadly his race ended with a crash in the middle of the second lap.

“We’re having a really hard time finding the right grip. This is a problem we’ve been carrying around for a while and we definitely need to solve it quickly. I’m usually pretty strong in wet conditions but today I felt like I was skating and couldn’t even defend myself from the overtaking. The crash? I went into the corner feeling the back wheel slipping and the high side was pretty hard.”
