Darryn Binder surges through to Moto3 seventh at Silverstone
A strong ride from Darryn Binder saw him end the first British Grand Prix since 2019 seventh.
A great start from 16th on the grid saw Darryn power through the field to tenth before the end of the first lap. The South African made it into the top-five one lap later and set about closing the gap to the riders out front. Joining the podium fight with ten laps to go, Darryn battled hard with those around until the chequered flag waved. Ultimately crossing the line seventh and increasing his world championship points to 95, he leaves the British GP sixth in the riders’ standings.
I had a good start to the race and I was able to get towards the front quite quickly. Unfortunately the groups of riders were really small, which meant that one small mistake and you lose the slipstream. This happened to me and I was out of the group. I am really happy with how the opening laps went and I felt really fast, but I was just missing some speed. This is something that we need to improve. Right now my goal is to be in the top-five every race, that will make me happy, so hopefully we can do this in the next few races.
