SCOTT REDDING IN DIFFICULTY WITH TYRE CHOICE
The day of practice had begun on the right foot for Aleix Espargaró, fast in FP3 at Brno, so much to miss going straight through to the second qualifying session by less than a tenth of a second. The Spanish rider improved his feeling, finding better sensations than yesterday and he was also comforted by improving physical fitness. Only a technical problem, currently being assessed by the Aprilia techs, hindered Aleix during Q1, just as he was turning his best lap of the weekend. The disappointment in the number 41 garage is understandable as the race now promises to be a comeback ride for a points finish.
Scott Redding's difficulties continue as he struggles to find a satisfactory tyre combination. The English rider will tackle the race striving to squeeze the most out of the technical package, always on the hunt for a points finish.
