Scott Redding wrapped up his second day of testing on the Gresini Honda RCV1000R early as the young British prot?g? continues to battle pain in his injured arm.

Former Moto2 star Redding, who was involved in a massive spill at Phillip Island, opted to limit his time on track during day two of the Valencia MotoGP test, completing 23 laps and setting a best time of 1m 34.541s that left him in 19th position on the time sheets.

"Today wasn't easy because I am still tired from the race and the amount of laps I did yesterday on a bike that has so much more power than I am used to, so we decided to finish early," said Redding.

"In the few laps I did manage we worked well and I can tell this is a professional team with competent and well prepared staff.

"We have started to work in a good way together and now I just want to focus on being ready for the winter tests in Malaysia."

Team boss Fausto Gresini added: "As far as Scott is concerned his first contact with the team has been positive and it's a real shame he hasn't been able to do many laps today because of his arm.

"Anyway, he had a good day yesterday and now he knows what MotoGP is all about, he has time to get fit again before we start our real work together at Sepang."
