Scott Redding will attempt to erase the memory of the disappointment of his Austin MotoGP crash by gaining a positive result this weekend in Argentina.

The 22-year-old came off his Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Honda on the first lap after qualifying on the second row in sixth place.

Redding also brought down Monster Yamaha Tech 3's Pol Espargaro as his race ended on a sour note in Texas and the British prospect is eager to make amends at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit.

"To crash out of the race in Austin after my best ever qualifying in MotoGP was disappointing, but we can take a lot of positives from the weekend," Redding said.

"We found a good set-up with the bike and I was fast in both the wet and dry, so we'll be starting from a much better base this weekend in Argentina, even if the Termas de Rio Hondo track is very different to the Circuit of the Americas.

"We need to continue working in the same direction as we did in Austin, improving the bike and the lap time in every session," he added.

"If we can do that then I think we can put the disappointment of Austin behind us with a good result on Sunday."
