Round five of the Moto2 World Championship will see a fifth different rider start from pole after grand prix rookie Claudio Corti ruled Saturday's qualifying session for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Jules Cluzel completed a perfect day for the Forward Racing team by slotting into second place - a sizeable 0.413sec behind Corti - with Stefan Bradl (Viessmann Kiefer) and Julian Simon (Mapfre Aspar) forming an all-Suter front row.

Yonny Hernandez (BQR) had been leading the session with just a few minutes to go, but will start fifth, just in front of Xavier Simeon (Moriwaki), Alex Baldolini (ICP) and rne Tode (Suter).

Title leader Toni Elias, the only double winner so far this season, will start just 19th for Gresini (Moriwaki) and will be glad that he holds a 19 point lead over Shoya Tomizawa, who will start from eleventh for Technomag-CIP (Suter).
