BMW-es Scott Redding with puncture in 5th place / Superbike World Championship

As fifth in race two, Scott Redding secured the best result at the Superbike World Championship meeting 2022 in Assen. The Englishman’s will to win has been revived.

After the season opener in Aragón, Scott Redding did not react: Only one world championship point from three races was a humiliation that the Englishman could hardly bear. But in Assen, the 29-year-old drove as if he had been changed, especially in the second race on Sunday.

Rescue fought a remarkable duel with Kawasaki factory pilot Alex Lowes and Ducati privateman Axel Bassani for fourth place. After various position changes, the BMW driver roared over the finish line in sixth place and was classified as fifth – Bassani was subsequently given a time penalty of three seconds.

“When in race two ahead there could be an accident between Jonathan and Toprak, the pace slowed down a bit. It gave me the chance to get back in the group. And then I stuck to it, I gave 110 percent every turn to be there. I think if you look at the race, you can see that I tried everything. In the last three or four laps, I got a puncture in the right tire and lost grip. It was really a shame because I feel like I deserved a fourth place. Because I rode hard and well. But it’s okay. When I finished in the top six, I was initially happy with it.

At the same time, third place in the 2021 World Cup requires a greater effort from BMW.

“We have to do more. I’m driving at the limit and I’m still 15 seconds down in a race that felt good to me. So we can be happy that we got a good result for ourselves, but we must continue to work, “Redding stressed.” That’s the most important thing for me. I want to win This result is okay for me, but not what I would like. And I think we can do it. Hopefully we can find something that will give us half a second – that’s what we’re looking for to take the next step. “

Redding got 18 World Cup points for 9th and 5th place in the main races and climbed up to 12th place in the overall standings with a total of 19 points. He finished 11th in the Superpole race and got no points. The best BMW driver is Loris Baz (Bonovo action) with 28 points in tenth place.
