Moto2: Corti on pole for Silverstone

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).

1. Corti (Suter) 2m 9.624s
2. Cluzel (Suter) +0.413s
3. Bradl (Suter) +0.789s
4. Simon (Suter) +0.795s

Great to see Yonny Hernandez up there, he led a couple of preseason tests, has been lurking here and there, but now is really getting to the top. Amazing progress if you look at his career trajectory.

Don't get me wrong I think the new moto2 class is great and what motogp needed but I just want a a few guys who are the class acts of the class who are consistent OK Elias, Gadea, Corsi and Talmacsi have scored points at every round so far and its great to see differnet riders up there but i just wish that we had a few that stay up there with the 1 rounders
