Scott Redding started from the third position but since the first laps, he didn’t find a good feeling with the front tire, finishing in fifth position.
Redding stayed with the leading group from the beginning and his pace increased considerably from the middle of the race. After a great battle with Rinaldi for the third position, Scott started chasing Locatelli, overtaking him with three laps to go, securing his second podium finish of the weekend.

“I’m happy to end the weekend with another podium. I struggled a lot to find the feeling with the front tire but in Race 2 we were able to make that small step that allowed me to keep a better pace. In the beginning, I tried not to push hard to save the front tire and for this reason, I lost a little bit of ground compared to the lead. The pace has improved a lot since the middle of the race but the gap with Rea was too wide to fight for the victory”.
