27 crashes in 20 races, this is the pilot who “flew” the most during the season

6 days ago

The information surrounding the crashes of pilots during the championship has been made public by MotoGP, as is custom at the conclusion of every season.

Darryn Binder on the Yamaha WithU engine is at the top of the list with 27 crashes (both during the race and during official or free trials).

Given that the South African driver switched from the Moto3 class to the MotoGP class, this was expected. Marco Bezzecchi, an Italian Ducati VR46 rookie, was in second place and had experienced 23 crashes. With 21 crashes each, Honda riders Pol Espargaro and Alex Marquez round up the podium.
