A disappointing end to the #MalaysianGP weekend for Darryn
All eyes have been focused on the MotoGP World Championship title battle as well as the sky above the Sepang International Circuit on Sunday for round 19 of the 2022 season, the home race for WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team.
Darryn did his usual start flying off the line, catching half the field in the initial stages of the race. After he had to start last, he was in an impressive 11th position after the third lap. Although he tried all he could, he struggled to stop his bike after a few laps and was back in P16. Although the MotoGP rookie was fighting hard, he couldn’t avoid a crash on lap 11, which unfortunately ended his chase for a decent result prematurely.
“Overall, it’s been a little bit of a difficult weekend. Unfortunately, starting at the back of the grid today, I knew that I would have to get a good start and make some places up in the beginning if I wanted a chance to fight for some points. I managed to get a really good start and was feeling good in the first six laps, and then started to struggle a little bit and I didn’t have the same pace as the group that I was in, but at the same time I was just trying to keep my rhythm and keep myself inside the points. Unfortunately in lap 11, I took the front going into turn five. A really disappointing end to the weekend. But anyway, we go to the last race and we will do our best.”
