In a thrilling start to the MotoGP season, South Africa's Brad Binder clinched an impressive second place at the Qatar MotoGP on Sunday. Beginning the race from the fourth position, Binder quickly escalated to second place, overtaking Jorge Martin, only to briefly lose and then regain his position from the Spanish rider, maintaining it for the remainder of the race.


While defending champion Francesco Bagnaia led comfortably from start to finish, claiming the victory, Binder showcased remarkable performance, narrowing the gap with Bagnaia towards the race's end, though an overtaking move remained elusive.


Expressing his excitement, Binder remarked, "I'm super stoked, especially after also securing second in the sprint. It was a challenge to sustain till the end. I aimed to close in on 'Pecco' (Bagnaia), who performed flawlessly without a single error."


The MotoGP season is set to continue in Portugal on March 24, with riders and fans eagerly anticipating the next race.
