#StatAttack: Moto3™ ready for Austrian challenge

The Moto3™ World Championship returns from the summer break with Brad Binder leading the championship by 47 points.

  • Championship leader Brad Binder will celebrate his 21st birthday on the day before practice starts at the Austrian Grand Prix.

  • Khairul Idham Pawi won the German GP by 11.131 seconds, adding to his victory in Argentina earlier in the season, which was by 26.17 seconds – the two largest margins of victory so far in 2016. In addition to the 50 points Pawi has taken from these two wins he has only added a further four points from 14th place finishes in at Jerez and Le Mans.

  • Andrea Locatelli’s second place finish in Germany was his first time standing on a grand prix podium in what was his 41st GP start in the Moto3™ class.

  • The Italian revival continues in the Moto3™ class with fourteen podium finishes already for Italian riders in the first half of the season. This is already equal to the number of podiums Italy achieved during the whole of last season, which in itself was the most podiums for Italy in the lightweight-class of grand prix racing since 2005.

  • The sixth place finish for John McPhee in Germany is the best result so far for Peugeot in their first year in grand prix racing.
