Cal Crutchlow takes a dominant home pole position in the wet at Silverstone, ahead of Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales.

Marc Marquez, Andrea Dovizioso and Eugene Laverty were among the pole contenders to fall during the session - Laverty while under Crutchlow's pole time on his final lap.

Alex Lowes is making his MotoGP race debut, in place of the injured Bradley Smith at Tech 3 Yamaha. Smith suffered knee ligament injuries at last weekend's Oschersleben round of the World Endurance Championship and has also been ruled out of Misano.

Jack Miller is returning to action after missing the last two races due to injuries in Austria...
