Rossi sought the binder ahead of this weekend’s Doha GP after South Africa nudged the Petronas SRT rider slightly wider on Thursday in Turn 1 of the second half of last week’s Qatar race.
How Rossi is part of the grid including the KTM rider- Not on track and having the same level of “respect” Like others do.
When asked by Motorsport.com for an answer, Binder said:So once in austria [last year] We were both completely off track. This is understandable.
“I think it’s normal to be a little upset again. But to be fair, I didn’t touch him at all, and I think he’s probably a little sensitive. But nothing else is wrong. I don’t think I did. I went next to him and started braking. He wanted to release the brakes and close the line.
“That’s why I also released the brakes, the end of the story.”
KTM appeared to be more competitive in Qatar on Friday, and Miguel Oliveira was just 0.030 seconds off the second quarter location on the 11th after Friday.
Binder stayed in 18th place due to a problem with the rear tires during the time attack, but feels that it is “the first time he has really touched the problem” on Friday at the Doha GP.
“It’s better in that you stop the bike at the corner entry and feel a little better at the turn,” he said of his day. “So it’s the first time we really feel that we’ve touched our problem.
“I’m not very happy with the FP2 tires. It didn’t work at all. It was like riding on ice and there were jumps on the other tires. It’s very strange. It’s definitely It’s a little more positive. I think everyone did a good job this week, I feel my bike is working better and I’m more confident in some of the changes they made.
“What’s really annoying is that I felt ready to do a good job, but I felt that there were two issues that FP2 couldn’t control, which really hurt me, or at least the chance to get one. Was in the second quarter. “
