Scott finishes P12 in difficult Magny Cours race 1
Race-1 of the French Round, eighth event of the 2021 WorldSBK season, ended with a P12 for Scott Redding who – after a difficult qualifying session – never managed to find the conditions to be competitive.
Despite a FP3 finished in first position, Scott was not able to get the best out of the two qualifying tires and he had to settle for the eighth position on the grid.
Scott’s race was difficult since the start. The English rider complained of strong grip problems that force him to make some mistakes in braking. Despite all, he tried to push to recover positions and points.
During the fight for the 8th position he fell without consequences and he was able to resume the race, crossing the finish line 12th.

“It was a very tough race. I never had any grip both on the front and on the rear. I tried to hold on until the end even though the feeling was not the best. Then I crashed. In conditions like these, when the temperature is high but not very high, we have difficult problems to solve. Anyway, I hope to do better tomorrow in terms of results”.
