Race-1 of the Pirelli Navarra Round, seventh event of the 2021 WorldSBK season, ended with an extraordinary victory by Scott Redding.
P2 – Scott Redding confirmed in FP3 the good feeling he had on Friday and in the Superpole, he easily finished second behind Rea (Kawasaki).
P1 – Scott’s race was flawless. A superb start, maybe the best of this year so far, allowed him to take the lead by the first corner. Rea’s reaction came a little later but Redding gave the feeling to have a much better pace. On lap 6 the English rider was back in the lead of the race, which he dominated until the checkered flag.

“I’m really happy because it was not an easy race with such a high temperature. But we managed to find the ideal conditions to race at our best. Since the first laps, I had confidence, the feeling was excellent, I felt comfortable. The World Championship? I just want to keep thinking race after race. I’m doing my best, the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati team and Ducati are doing their best. Let’s continue like this.”
