Brad Binder, the South African rider, commenced the season in Qatar with promising performances, securing podium finishes in both the sprint and grand prix. However, his subsequent races have been marked by a lack of podium appearances.

In the American leg of the season, Binder encountered setbacks due to setup changes that failed to yield the desired results. This led to his failure to progress beyond Q1 and a modest ninth-place finish in the Grand Prix.

At the Jerez circuit, Binder faced a crash during the second practice session on Friday, which relegated him to Q1. Despite this setback, Binder expressed optimism about the changes made to the front end of his RC16 bike, noting a significant improvement in his riding experience. He credited these tweaks for restoring his confidence, particularly in braking and corner entry, describing his performance throughout the day as notably strong.
