The sun greeted riders and teams one more time today at the Mandalika Circuit for their third and final day of testing in Indonesia, before everyone is packing and gearing up for the first Grand Prix of 2022 in less than three weeks’ time at the Losail International Circuit, Qatar.
Once again, Andrea Dovizioso managed to step forward aboard his Yamaha YZR-M1. The Italian went 0.413 seconds faster than yesterday. To improve his sensations and learn more about his new machine, he tried several settings and did a long run before midday. In total, the WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team rider did 189 laps at the brand-new venue in Indonesia throughout the three days of official test.
On the other side, Darryn Binder did 173 laps in three days, learning the new layout and further adapting to the MotoGP bike and the premier class in general. He beat his personal best time from Saturday slightly and finished off testing with a long run this afternoon, gathering a lot of data and experience. With the pre-season finished, the MotoGP rookie and the entire WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team are eagerly awaiting the start of the 2022 season now.
