Following a five weeks’ summer break the entire WithU Yamaha RNF MotoGP Team is more than ready to kick off the second half of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship season. Round 12 of the year will take place this weekend at the traditional Silverstone Circuit in England and with fully charged batteries, the squad aims to turn the page after a tricky first part of the season.
Rookie Darryn Binder had a great debut in the premier class. Scoring some points in two races with a top 10 in Indonesia as his personal best result, the South African made some clear progress throughout the initial rounds. Although he starts from scratch at each circuit, coming straight from the Moto3 class, he is eager to continue his strong progress throughout the remainder of the year.
On the other hand, Andrea Dovizioso was struggling to decently get to grips with his Yamaha YZR-M1 machine. Nevertheless, the three times MotoGP runner-up keeps trying to find improvements for himself and further adapt his riding style in order to build up on his 10 points scored so far. Just before the summer break, he made some good steps in Germany and the Netherlands and targets to carry on where he left off.
The British Grand Prix starts this Friday with Free Practice one at 9:55 local time (10:55 CET), followed by FP2 at 14:10 local time (15:10 CET).
