MotoGP Race Result: Austrian GP

Race result from the Red Bull Ring in Austria, round 11 of the 2021 MotoGP World Championship

Brad Binder took an extraordinary victory for factory KTM in front of the manufacturers home-crowd at the Red Bull Ring, Austria. The South-African stayed on slicks after a late downpour forced most of the grid to pit for wet tyres.

Binder had moved up to 6th when the rain started to appear and the leaders grouped together as the conditions became more challenging. The five riders ahead of him elected to pull into the pits to change to wet weather settings but Binder gambled and gingerly guided his KTM RC16 to take the chequered flag.
