Redding’s nightmare continues
Pramac Ducati rider Scott Redding suffered a difficult three days at Phillip Island as he fought to overcome a number of issues that have plagued him since he inherited Andrea Iannone’s GP16 machine at the end of the 2016 season.
Never getting into a rhythm as he fought chatter and grip issues, he was able to at least take some positives from the test by making some progress on the final day.
“I’M happy and unhappy. To see where we were on the first day and where we came to makes me feel a bit better, but I expected more at the end. But we’ve just had no grip, and have been struggling with getting on the gas. I just don’t feel comfortable.
“I felt a bit more like myself on the last day and I set my best time, but when the tyres drop off I can’t go through turn one, turn three Ð it’s a nightmare. We managed to fix a couple of things, and thatõs progress because we were in a really bad way.”
Redding has been way off the pace in pre-season testing
