Just a few days after the German Grand Prix, the entire MotoGP World Championship is already setting up again at the historical TT Circuit in Assen for the 11th round of the 2022 season. This weekend will also be the final one ahead of the well-deserved summer break after a busy first part of the season.
Premier class rookie Darryn Binder made some impressive steps forward throughout the last three rounds in Italy, Catalunya and Germany and made some huge progress throughout the weekends, getting to grips with new tracks aboard his Yamaha YZR-M1 machine and finding the connection to the top. This weekend, the South African is happy to return to a circuit he usually went well on and aims to continue his growth, although his chase in Germany saw an unfortunately early end.
On the other side of the WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team garage, Andrea Dovizioso struggled this year so far, but found some small improvements in order to ameliorate his sensations. After he managed to do a decent 30 laps race at Sachsenring and bring home two World Championship points, the Italian is now eager to resume his move forward to go into the summer break with a good feeling.
As usual, the weekend in the Netherlands kicks off with Free Practice one for the MotoGP class at 09:55 local time this Friday, followed by FP2 at 14:10 local time.
