SCOTT REDDING STOPS ON THE EIGHTH ROW
Going straight through to Q2, earned thanks to the eighth best time in FP3, was foreshadowing of a qualifying session on the attack for Aleix Espargaró in Le Mans. Unfortunately, the Spanish rider fell victim to a crash in the early stages of the decisive session, without physical consequences, but enough to prevent him from improving. In any case, Aleix will start from the fourth row and he'll be able to count on his and the Aprilia RS-GP's good potential, as well as a good race pace.
It was a difficult day of qualifying for Scott Redding who, despite some changes made, was still unable to find the right feeling on the French track. At the end of Q1, it was the twenty-second best time and the eighth row for him.
