Darryn places sixteenth in the #SanMarinoGP
Darryn Binder came off the line well from P21 and was 17th after the first lap of today’s San Marino GP held at Misano. He managed to climb up to P13 on lap three, but lost a place before halfway through the race already. In the final laps, the South African MotoGP rookie couldn’t push like before anymore and had two more riders passing him. He crossed the line in 16th and thereby just missed out on the points scoring positions.
“After warm up this morning, I was confident that I will have a good race today. After the start, I managed to stay out of trouble, there was a lot going on at the first couple of laps. I really had a good pace, I felt really strong at the beginning of the race running inside the points, but unfortunately at the last 10 laps, I really started to struggle with the rear tyre and I wasn’t able to maintain my position. It’s sad to end the race that way but in the end I will take the positive and will work on these areas I struggled today in the test on Tuesday and Wednesday and find the settings that can help me a little bit towards the end of the race and move on to Aragon.”
