Points finish for Darryn in Thailand


For Darryn Binder, the challenging Thailand Grand Prix brought a conciliatory end thanks to a strong recovery to 15th place.

Darryn’s mission to make up ground in the race after two busy days in Buriram and thus eradicate his 25th place on the grid was well-accomplished thanks to a strong start. Already on the first lap, the South African moved up six positions and fought his way into the points over the course of the 22-lap race. The 25-year-old finished this sweaty Thailand race in fifteenth place and consequently collected another World Championship point.

“I mean, it was a really difficult weekend. I went out today to gather information, learn as much as I could, and gain as many positions as I could. In the beginning, I felt like I got a good start and made up a lot of positions, but after the first quarter of the distance I was where I was for the rest of the race, and I really couldn’t make more steps forward. But I always did my best and tried to understand as much as possible and pushed until the checkered flag. I’m really disappointed with my weekend here in Buriram, I feel like I had a tough weekend. But anyway, I did what I could, and I’ll take everything for Malaysia and try again.”
