Yes, that would be correct
If you are painting the wall red again, you may want to tint the primer, and/or "spot paint" a "pre-coat" of color over the area
Reds are tough to get right, and sometimes take several coats
A gray primer and a "spot coat" of color (or two) over the repair area would help ensure that the repair area blends in as well as possible
(it would be over kill for most applications, but reds can be tough)
