Brad Binder produced a brave ride in a wet-dry Austrian Grand Prix to give Red Bull KTM a home MotoGP win.
Binder earned his second career MotoGP winning a wet Grand Prix on slicks, bravely staying out on the dry tyres as the rain bucketed down. In sixth when the rain started to come down, Binder would benefit from a huge gamble, staying out on the dangerously smooth slick tyres.
Fortune favours brave Brad Binder
The South African built a phenomenal lead with his brave decision, but he had to hold off charges from those who had put their wet tyres on.
Behind Binder there was chaos as Marc Marquez fell off chasing the Red Bull rider.
Binder is a rider renowned for his guts and he certainly showed his willingness to take a risk with a superb ride and tremendous control.
Binder admitted that he could push on the first lap after the rain started pouring down but said that he soon lost all the grip in his tyres and by the end of the race was operating without the use of his brakes.
Binder was hit with a penalty for exceeding track limits on the last lap but it didn’t change his final position and he can lay claim to one of the ballsiest rides in the history of MotoGP.
Pecco Bagnaia and rookie Jorge Martin, who both pitted with three laps to go rounded off the podium.
