Quartararo fastest from Rossi during Free Practice 3 for the British MotoGP at Silverstone.

The top ten riders after FP3 (combined times) receive direct access to the second and final part of qualifying. The track has been resurfaced following last year's rain cancellation, with four different front and rear tyre compounds to chose from this weekend..

Lorenzo is making his return from back fractures at Assen, while Mir is still absent after lung damage in the Brno test and is replaced by Suzuki test rider Guintoli.
