Fresh but sunny weather accompanied the MotoGP World Championship on the day of return to action after the summer break in Great Britain. Recharged and eager to start all over, Andrea Dovizioso and Darryn Binder showed some progress from Free Practice one to Free Practice two on Friday.
Following his huge announcement on Thursday, Dovizioso turned his focus fully back to further improve his feeling on the Yamaha YRZ-M1 today. After finishing the first session of the weekend in P20, the Italian made up one position in FP2. In the process, he went an incredible 1.705 seconds faster and closed the gap to the front to one second.
In the meantime, premier class rookie Binder was learning his way around the iconic Silverstone Circuit once again in FP1, finishing in P24. He likewise stepped forward in the second session this afternoon, went 1.037 seconds faster, although he had a fast but harmless crash in the beginning of the session.
Both, Dovizioso and Binder and their respective crews already have some ideas in mind to further reduce their gap to the fastest on Saturday in Free Practice three at 09:55 local time (10:55 CET) ahead of FP4 and the all-important Qualifying in the afternoon.
