Spain’s Joan Mir on a Suzuki robbed Ducati of a one-two by clinching second spot from Australian Jack Miller with a single corner to spare.
Further back, though Binder missed out on the podium, he did enough to climb one position to fourth overall in the season standings.
The race featured a string of crashes and narrow escapes notably for Yamaha’s Franco Morbidelli and Frenchman Johann Zarco.
In a two-way tangle on lap eight at the empty Speilberg circuit, Yamaha’s Morbidelli and Zarco hit the deck at high speed.
Zarco’s Ducati carried on without him, cut a corner and narrowly missed the veteran Valentino Rossi, who was clearly shaken by the close shave.
The riderless bike exploded into pieces at a safety barrier scattering debris through the air as the race was red flagged.
Morbidelli was taken away on a stretcher but was later able to walk to an ambulance as Zarco appeared unhurt.
The accident followed a similar spectacular spill in the earlier Moto2 race.
