Binder: "The race in which I had my best feeling"

South African talks Phillip Island after another win - and a great result for his brother

Another win in 2016 for Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Ajo) saw the South African storm to victory in Phillip Island from pole position, with the success compounded by a fantastic result for his brother Darryn (Platinum Bay Real Estate). Far from an easy race, the first run was red-flagged after a crash through Lukey Heights for John McPhee (Peugeot MC Saxoprint) saw debris on the track and other riders caught in the crossfire, before Binder took the lead at lights out and then slowly started to pull away. The gap at the front for the 2016 Moto3™ World Champion grew once again as most of the top ten in the Championship failed to score, and Binder now has two races left to see what kind of high he can sign off on in Moto3™ - with the intermediate class beckoning for 2017.

Brad Binder (P1): "Today has been fantastic - we had a very good race. I started very well, I felt very strong on the first few laps and I decided to push to open a gap to my rivals. I knew if I extended the advantage and broke out of the slipstream I could keep away from the chasing pack, and I managed to carry that out. On the first five laps I saw that I had a 3 second lead, and knowing this was key to relaxing and going even faster. I think this was the race in which I had my best feeling. I'm very happy that I got another win, but today is much more special because my brother finished fourth."
