After falling in Texas, MotoGP rookie Scott Redding got more points on the board in Argentina, but it was a difficult and disappointing race for the Gresini Honda rider.

The Englishman crossed the line in 14th place after struggling for front grip.

"It was a difficult race today. I started to struggle a little with front grip during morning warm up, but the problem was worse in the race. It made braking into the turns difficult and I was running wide a lot, which meant overtaking was impossible," he said.

"This issue basically spoiled the whole race for me, as I lost around half a second from my pace in warm up, so I'm obviously disappointed.

"I wasn't feeling great either. I started to come down with cold symptoms last night and, today, the energy levels were definitely down. It's annoying, because we thought we had a good chance in the race."

Redding, seventh and top Production Honda on his race debut in Qatar, has now dropped to fourth in the Open class standings.
