Scott Redding has lost more ground to his closest WorldSBK rivals after finishing behind Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea in all three Misano races. 

Redding had a consistent weekend, but one where a lack of feeling with the ‘front tyre’ cost him any chance of fighting for the podium. 

Redding was unable to challenge Razgatlioglu, Rea and team-mate Michael Rinaldi in any of the three races, which resulted in a 45 point deficit to Rea in the championship. 

Redding said: "It was a hard weekend from the beginning. We got off on a difficult foot and never really improved honestly. 

"Just been fourth position every race. Today we were able to improve a little bit the feeling with the bike compared to yesterday but it was not enough to be able to reach the podium. 

"Honestly, in the first laps of the Superpole Race, I thought I could fight with Johnny (Rea) in an incisive way, while in Race-2 I felt I had no grip with the front tyre. 

"It was a triple whammy for me because my team-mate was super fast all weekend and you always want to beat your team-mate."

Rinaldi had the strongest weekend of any Ducati rider so far this season with two wins and a second place, however, the Italian remains some way off the championship battle at the moment. 

But it was valuable points lost to the likes of Razgatlioglu and Rea who are sure to be competing for the title come season’s end. 

"Okay, for the championship he’s [Rinaldi] not a big threat at this moment. But then, Toprak [Razgatlioglu] was always in front and was already in front of me in the championship," added Redding. 

"Jonathan [Rea] was in front of me and in the championship, so it was just a hard weekend. I just had to try and stay calm, not try to override and lose the points again."
