Full British MotoGP qualifying results at Silverstone

Marc Marquez has stormed to yet another pole position beating nearest rival Valentino Rossi at Silverstone ahead of the British MotoGP.

The Repsol Honda rider clinched his 60th career pole position with a stunning new lap record of the British track with a 1m 58.168s on his final flying lap in Q2, taking pole off of Rossi by an impressive 0.428s.

In the last-lap attacks Miller also starred by surging on to the front row with third place for Pramac Ducati, pushing Fabio Quartararo down to fourth place having led the opening three practice sessions for Petronas Yamaha, while the MotoGP rookie suffered a suspected technical issue midway through Q2.

Suzuki’s Alex Rins bolted through Q1 to secure the middle of the second row as Maverick Vinales could only manage sixth place on the Monster Yamaha.

Andrea Dovizioso, who topped Q1, heads up row three on the Ducati and is joined by Petronas Yamaha’s Franco Morbidelli and home rider Cal Crutchlow who crashed out late on at Stowe which denied him his final qualifying lap for LCR Honda.

Takaaki Nakagami struggled to recover from losing his initial Q2 lap for exceeding track limits as he claimed 10th place for LCR Honda ahead of Ducati’s Danilo Petrucci and Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro who complete the fourth row.

Pol Espargaro led the KTM charge but was unable to breakout of Q1 behind Dovizioso and Rins with the Red Bull KTM rider qualifying in 13th place directly in front of team-mate Johann Zarco who produced a partial recovery after stopping on his out-lap at the start of the session.

Miguel Oliveira slotted in behind the factory KTM duo for 15th place on the Tech3, ahead of Avintia Ducati’s Tito Rabat on his return to the track where he suffered serious injuries 12 months ago.

Andrea Iannone struggled in qualifying for Aprilia and will line up in 17th place but ahead of Pramac Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia and Sylvain Guintoli who is standing in for the injured Joan Mir at Suzuki.

With Hafizh Syahrin taking 20th on the grid for the British round on the Tech3 KTM, Jorge Lorenzo could only manage 21st overall as he battles back from fractured vertebrae sustained in a crash at Assen in June. Karel Abraham completes the grid in last place for Avintia Ducati having suffered three crashes already this weekend.
