Darryn makes steps forward after the summer break as Silverstone weekend gets underway
Fresh but sunny weather accompanied the MotoGP World Championship on the day of return to action after the summer break in Great Britain. Recharged and eager to start all over, Darryn Binder showed some progress from Free Practice one to Free Practice two on Friday.
Premier class rookie Darryn was learning his way around the iconic Silverstone Circuit once again in FP1, finishing in P24. He likewise stepped forward in the second session this afternoon, went 1.037 seconds faster, although he had a fast but harmless crash in the beginning of the session.
“It’s really good to be back on the bike after five weeks of summer break. It was super cool to get out here in FP1, I really enjoyed to ride the circuit on the MotoGP machine. Slowly, but surely, I started to get the feeling back after five weeks not riding the bike. I felt I could have been faster in the beginning, but after FP1, I was ready for FP2. Unfortunately, on the second lap of FP2 I made a mistake and I crashed, which messed up our session a bit, as we weren’t able to get the bike back and it messed up also our strategy quite a bit. But anyway, we’ll work on everything and be ready for tomorrow.”
