Scott Redding was satisfied with his progress on the Go&Fun Gresini Honda as the British rookie completed 52 laps at Sepang today.

Redding was 21st quickest overall and sixth fastest Open class rider on the RCV1000RR with a best time of 2m 03.117s as he continues to adapt to his new steed in MotoGP.

"Today was a little better than yesterday; I could put in a lot of laps and we are slowly closing the gap to the other Honda production racers," he said.

"We worked hard on the braking and now I feel more comfortable on the bike.

"The track conditions and temperatures change a lot during the day and this is making me struggle a little bit, but generally speaking I am satisfied with how my apprenticeship is progressing," Redding added.

"From the riding point of view, I'm learning how to brake into the corner and getting the bike turned on exit. Tomorrow we will try to further improve it."
