Just a few days of rest and traveling after the third round of the season in Argentina and the entire MotoGP paddock is already off to the United States, where the partly resurfaced Circuit of The Americas awaits for Grand Prix number four. The 5.5-kilometer layout close to Austin is one of the most varied in the GP calendar.
WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team’s Darryn Binder is eager to try his Yamaha YZR-M1 at this special venue, starting from scratch again. Finishing the Argentina Grand Prix in P18, the MotoGP rookie gained more experience and delivered some great battles once again. With six points on his account, he arrives as the second-best premier class newcomer so far and will look to score more.
In the meantime, Andrea Dovizioso is looking to make up some lost ground from Termas de Rio Hondo, where he had to stop in the pitlane after just one lap, but later on found a good rhythm and some improvements. He already had some decent sensations aboard his Yamaha YZR-M1 last year and aims to cement his improvements with a strong result.
The WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team gets ready for Free Practice one this Friday at 09:55 local time (16:55 CET), while the race on Sunday will get underway at 13:00 local time (20:00 CET).
