Scott Redding is continuing to adjust to life on board the Desmosedici, finishing the second day of testing in Sepang in an impressive seventh place.

The Briton, who is making tangible progress on the bike since leaving the Marc VDS squad, completed 42 laps and finished the session posting a time of 2:01,049 on the soft spec Michelin tyre – the ninth best time of the day and the seventh in the combined standings.

Redding said: “The goal was to improve the feeling with the bike. We haven’t spent any real work yet to find the time but obviously we’re trying. With the hard tyres we worked hard to look for the best position on the bike in order to increase traction. We found more stability but not enough traction. In this moment of the season it’s normal to try different set up and we’ll try again tomorrow. In the afternoon I did not go bad lapping consecutively in 2:01.8 and 2:01.9 but I hope tomorrow we can lower that by half of a second – that would make me competitive also on the race pace.”
