Moto2: Redding seeking to build on points

Scott Redding secured his first Moto2 points of the season by finishing 11th last time out at Le Mans, from 21st on the grid.

Starting so far back is an enormous penalty in such a closely competitive class and the Marc VDS Suter rider knows he needs to make a much faster start to this weekend's Italian Grand Prix at Mugello.

“The racing is very difficult. You have one second separating 30 guys which is very close, and every tenth feels like a second,” he said. “The season so far has been hard but I'm sure we can get some better results.

“I started 21st at Le Mans and made 11th in the race, so if I'm in front from the beginning of the weekend at Mugello then I'm sure I can run with the front guys and get a good result.”

Redding was ninth in the 125cc race at Mugello last year.

Agreed. All credit to the pitifully few UK riders, Redding, Smith and Webb, (that's rather less than a handful), for trying the GP, rather than production based, route to the top.

The close times alone make it tough to gain any advantage over the other riders and with over 40 starters, one small mistake can make a huge difference. I think Scotts done OK so far, up against far more experienced riders.
