Few riders saw his arrival in MotoGP as scrutinized as Darryn Binder, who couldn't shake off the image of an aggressive rider on the track and sometimes even irresponsible. The south african countered these critics and is prepared to silence them with good results.
'At the end of the day I was hired to do a job, which is to get on the bike and do the best I can. Obviously I wanted to leave all the bad things behind and move on but it's complicated. I tried to do that last year but unfortunately at the end of the season I made a mistake and everyone started to criticize me. I'll just do my best and stay out of trouble. I hope to have good races and have new battles with all the riders. Whether you like me or not, it doesn't change anything. It's every rider for himself but of course I'll talk to any rider who wants to say something to me, I'm more than available to talk to anyone', began by saying Brad Binder's brother yesterday afternoon, on the sidelines of the team's presentation. Darryn also contested what he understands to be exaggerations in certain news:
- As far as the press is concerned, I think that last year some of the things that were said were out of the line. I even read things that gave me the impression that the words were being presented with a different meaning compared to what had been said originally. This is because I spoke to many people who told me the same thing, that what they had said came out differently in the press. I know everyone has their opinion but it doesn't really affect me because I just have to get on the bike and do my job.
