Scott Redding says his disappointment and frustration is continuing to build after another difficult Moto2 race day at Brno left him back in 26th position at the chequered flag.
The Briton has endured a torrid second season in the intermediate class with Marc VDS, Redding unable to live up to pre-season predictions that he would be a title challenger as he grapples with persistent set-up issues on his Suter.
This was brought into perspective at Brno as Redding began the weekend well before proceeding to struggle to match those lap time through the remaining practice sessions, qualifying and the race.
Claiming that he barely hit an apex all race, Redding says it is imperative for himself and the team to sit down and discover a solution for the next race at Indianapolis.
"That was obviously very disappointing and the frustration continues to build because this is not where myself and the Marc VDS Racing Team should be. I struggled for front grip right from the start, even though we reverted to the set-up I ran in the Sachsenring where the feeling wasn't so bad. But that didn't work and I'm a bit lost because we've been trying lots of different solutions on the bike and I keep losing the front.
“I just have big long slides so I can't get the bike turned and it is impossible for me to keep a fast pace. I don't think I hit an apex in the race and I couldn't get in to any sort of a consistent pace. We need to have a sit down and try and find a solution for Indianapolis, which is a race where I scored a podium at last year."
Marc VDS is staying at Brno to test its 1000cc BMW-engined Suter chassis for a possible entry to next year's MotoGP class.
