Binder no esperaba ser el mejor rookie de 2020

El piloto de KTM era uno de los tres debutantes en la parrilla de MotoGP en 2020, junto con Iker Lecuona (KTM Tech3) y Márquez (Repsol Honda), que llegaba como campeón de Moto2.

Tras conseguir su primera victoria en MotoGP en el Gran Premio de la República Checa, el premio al mejor rookie del año parecía destinado a Binder, pero un bajón de rendimiento en la segunda mitad de la temporada coincidió con el repunte de Márquez, que consiguió hacer funcionar la Honda a su gusto y acabó segundo en Le Mans y Aragón.

A pesar de caerse en la última carrera del año en el GP de Portugal –cuarto abandono–, Binder terminó la temporada 11º en la clasificación y mejor debutante después de que Márquez solo pudiera ser noveno en Portimao.

"Siendo sincero, estoy realmente sorprendido de que lo haya conseguido con la cantidad de veces que me he caído esta temporada", dijo Binder tras ganar el premio al rookie del año.

"Realmente quería terminar la temporada con buena nota y conseguir un podio al menos. Pero no pudo ser, así que tendremos que intentarlo la próxima".

Binder volverá a formar pareja en 2021 con su antiguo compañero de equipo en Moto2 y Moto3, Miguel Oliveira, que ganó el GP de Portugal.

El sudafricano dice que se sintió "súper contento" al ver a Oliveira ganar en su propio país y está deseando volver a compartir box con él de nuevo.

"Ha sido un compañero y un rival durante muchos años ya", comentó Binder. "Estoy súper contento de verle ganar delante de sus fans, el gran premio de casa".

"Miguel es un tipo súper genial y es increíble verle hacerlo bien aquí. Estoy deseando compartir el garaje con él el año que viene".

Alex Márquez no pudo impedir que Honda terminara la temporada por primera vez sin victorias en la categoría reina desde la creación de HRC en 1982, siendo además el único piloto de la marca que subió al podio. El catalán reconoció que sus caídas marchando delante en los grandes premios de Teruel y Europa hacen de Binder un justo ganador del premio al debutante del año.

"Binder se ha merecido el ser novato del año en dos errores, en la segunda carrera en Aragón y en la primera, en Valencia", dijo Márquez.

"El balance del año es positivo, aprendí mucho. Me habría gustado haber comenzado mejor, pero ese siempre ha sido mi ADN, el ir de menos a más. Hemos conseguido el objetivo de que la gente del taller se divierta, y creo que eso es positivo. Además he sido el único piloto de Honda que ha subido al podio, de modo que eso hace que la temporada sea positiva", añadió.
