Sunday’s race at the Red Bull Ring in Austria was a heck of a race. But the Austrian GP has kept it interesting post the race as well. After Yamaha bosses apologized to Rossi and Vinales, Scott Redding has apologized on social media after calling the Aprilia RS-GP machine a ‘piece of s**t’.

Scott Redding lashed out on Aprilia after his disappointing run at the Austrian GP. He was understandably angry after a good show in the wet conditions but a rather poor performance in dry conditions in Sunday's race.

Scott Redding said, “It’s been a f**king horrible weekend, because when conditions bring the machines closer I can see my potential and it reminded me of how good I can be. I’ve just accepted the situation all season because I haven’t had a wet session, but this weekend reminded me that I can still mix it with the best guys in the world. Then it dries out and you’re out in the f**king field again. To have a race like that is heart-breaking, because I try my hardest all the time and it just doesn’t get any easier. I can battle with my teammate at one track, like I did at Brno even though I crashed, then you come here and you can’t even be in the same f**king situation as him.

He continued, “Now I have to go to the next round at Silverstone, smile in front of everyone and say I’m going to do a good performance – and it’s all bulls**t. You can’t do anything. You can’t make a piece of s**t shine, but that’s what I’m trying to do. I know it sounds harsh and that I shouldn’t say it, but that’s what it is. You’re trying to make something average be better.”

The 25-year old calmed down afterwards though and in a social media post, apologized to the factory. He admitted that his heat-of-the-moment comments were inappropriate and out of line.



In the post he said, “I owe a huge apology to the Aprilia racing team and company. What I said Sunday on afternoon in my post-race interview was not acceptable by a long way. I was thinking with a lot of emotion and from my heart. But I spoke out with rage, which a young person of 25 can do very easily. I should be a role model, much more mature and composed. The team and company are doing the best they can to improve our MotoGP machine, we have some good items to test this week and I still believe this bike can be competitive. As a team you work, live, learn together so from the bottom of my heart I deeply say a big sorry for my outrageous words. I will learn from this.”
