Darryn focused on race day as he lines up on row eight of the #ThaiGP grid


Hot and very humid conditions greeted the MotoGP paddock on Saturday at the Chang International Circuit.

Darryn Binder landed a P21 in the combined standings after the three Free Practice sessions, still being close to the top, but unable to lower his lap time in FP3 this morning compared to Friday. Yet, the MotoGP rookie’s fastest time in Qualifying was slightly faster than his previous best this weekend. He concluded Qualifying one in P13, which means he’ll find himself in the eighth when the red lights go out for race 17 of 2022 tomorrow at 15:00 local time (10:00 CET).


“We’ve been lucky enough today to get good weather again. But it was much hotter than yesterday and I felt the track conditions have been slightly more difficult in the heat. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the step I was looking forward to in the Qualifying. Anyway, overall, I’ll just stay focused for tomorrow’s race, I’ll try to get everything together and do my best in the 26 laps of the race.”
