Redding wasn't impressed

Scott Redding has slammed Karel Abraham for his on-track antics during this week’s MotoGP test in Sepang.

Redding signaled his dismay at the Czech rider earlier today after Abraham slowed on fast lap to latch onto the back of Redding’s Honda for a tow. The pair ended up stopped on the side of the track in what can only be described as a slanging match.

"Don't get me started with Abraham!” Redding responded when asked about the incident. “He's just always in the way and following. If he's on a fast lap he could roll off and then he's waiting and waiting.

“So on that lap I just wanted to give him some s*** and he wanted to give me some s*** back. I was thinking, 'You don't have any say in this because you're just following me all the time.' It was just a bit of pushy, pushy. It's just annoying because it's hot and you're tired and he's just always waiting at the same place every time you go out. It was just a bit of frustration really."

It’s not the first time this week Abraham has come under fire for this, yesterday Cal Crutchlow stuck his middle finger up at the Cardion AB rider after a similar incident.

Redding finished this week’s test with a time of 2’00.965 placing him sixteenth on the timesheets.
