“It’s clear that the result is good but I have some regrets about the qualifying session that compromised the first part of the race. However, I must underline the work done with the team that has allowed us to have a very competitive pace. I will try to push hard tomorrow morning in the Superpole Race to start in a better position in Race-2”.

Scott Redding (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati #45)
“We took a good pole position but I have to admit it was a bit unexpected. I knew I had a good pace but maybe not enough to stay in the lead for the whole race but enough to allow me to fight with the front group. Unfortunately in the first corner, I lost the rear. It was a really strange crash: we will have to study the data to understand what happened”.
