The grid for the Czech GP was decided on Saturday at Brno, a day in which the Red Bull KTM Ajo Moto2 riders experienced a variety of conditions. Brad Binder went directly through to Q2 thanks to his time from Friday, and will start from 16th tomorrow.
FP3 was held in the dry, despite morning rain. Brad began Saturday positively, and was at the sharp end of the timesheets for much of the session. After completing a total of 12 laps, the South African was 13th with a 2:02.310 top time, going through to Q2 on the strength of his personal best from Friday.
Q1 featured a wet track, due to rain early in the afternoon. Brad went out with wet tyres for Q2, and would finish 16th thanks to his 2:14.177 time. The South African will be on the sixth row of the grid when the riders line up on Sunday.
#41 BRAD BINDER
“It’s been a difficult weekend so far. We started well in FP1, but since then I haven’t felt comfortable on the bike. We have been working hard but the things we have been trying out since yesterday have not worked as we had expected, so we have to keep trying until we are at our best. This afternoon, in wet conditions, I struggled a little more, but we got onto the sixth row of the grid for tomorrow’s race. Luckily, we still have the warmup tomorrow to finish finetuning our setup. I know that the team are working very hard, and that together we will find the right path.”
