Determined Redding Takes Hard Fought Top 10 At Silverstone. Bautista Out On The Penultimate Lap

Team GO&FUN Honda Gresini’s Scott Redding claimed the tenth place in today’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone: in front of his home crowd the English rookie rode a determined race, keeping behind him compatriot Crutchlow’s Ducati, despite struggling in the first laps with a full tank, and then keeping a good pace, reaching and overtaking Yonny Hernandez with three laps to go, resulting the best placed Honda RCV1000R for the fifth consecutive race.

His teammate, Alvaro Bautista, has unfortunately left the scene less than two laps from the end due to a fall: the Spaniard, started from the fourth row, was fighting with Andrea Iannone for the seventh position.

“Today during the warm up we tried some changes on the bike that allowed me to ride with more confidence and feel more comfortable, thus I was able to get a good rhythm in the race. I recovered some positions and I was fighting for seventh place when unfortunately with less than two laps to go I lost the front and I crashed, but I really don’t know why. I was not forcing, I knew I couldn’t reach Pol Espargarò in front of me; my target was simply to finish the race without risk. Physically I'm fine, though the moral is not the best: we're not having a good time, it’s clear. When you work hard and things are not going well it's hard, but we try to maintain a positive attitude”.

“I’m happy, even though at the beginning, with the full tank, I was struggling to stop and turn the bike; this is how the couple of guys in front of me went away a little bit in the early laps, but then I managed to keep Crutchlow and the other Open Hondas behind me, which was the main target. Towards the end of the race I was able to go faster, I got a good rhythm and I catched Hernandez, beating him on the finish line by 1.2 seconds. I’m happy also because I came back as top Brit under the chequered flag in my home race: I know that Smith had a problem, but for me was nice to beat Cal”.

“Regardless of the crash in the final stages of the race, today Alvaro showed a good pace: he fought hard and he gave his maximum, recovering positions and battling for a result that is within our expectations. Too bad for the fall, unfortunately this season is proving to be very strange and difficult. Scott did a great job and despite having struggled in the early stages with the full tank, he was later able to increase his pace, catching Hernandez and passing him. He did what he had to do, and this further demonstrates his growth”.
