Round 13 of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship is approaching fast. After the WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team and the entire circus returned to action less than two weeks ago in Silverstone following a long summer break, the entire squad is ready and eager to progress further this weekend at the Austrian Grand Prix in the picturesque area around Spielberg.
Premier class rookie Darryn Binder is showing a steep learning curve with each round this year as he is still set to relearn all the circuits aboard his Yamaha YZR-M1. Although he just made it into the top 20 in Great Britain last time out, the South African managed to gather a lot of experience, which he can rely on this weekend at the Red Bull Ring.
On the other hand, Andrea Dovizioso will approach his second last race weekend in the MotoGP class after he announced his early retirement. All the more he’ll be eager to finally score some points again, as he missed out on the top 15 by just a whisker last time out in Silverstone. The Italian has some fond memories of the Austrian track, where he delivered some historic battles in the past.
The race weekend starts traditionally with Free Practice one this Friday at 09:55 local time followed by the second practice session of the weekend at 14:10 local time.
