SCOTT REDDING TWENTY-FIRST
Working to improve the bike from the first session on Friday and with a performance in the race, the purpose of which, without holding back with his RS-GP, was to finish the race, Aleix Espargaró finished in the points in the GP of Misano. Fourteenth at the finish, he brought home two points that had been lacking since the Assen race and which boost morale also in view of the tests that Aprilia Racing will be conducting here in Misano tomorrow and Tuesday.
Starting well, in the top ten straight away, Aleix was penalised by the battle on the first turns which cost him five or six positions. From there he began a solid race that took him to the best result of the last four races.
Scott Redding had to deal with a tyre choice problem that caused him to finish twenty-first, rather far from his Aprilia Racing Team Gresini teammate.
