Marquez takes pole position for the British MotoGP at Silverstone ahead of Rossi and Miller.

The trio knocked Quartararo from pole to fourth while riding together on their final lap - Rossi being followed by Marquez, with Miller behind the Honda rider.

Home star Crutchlow fell during the session.

The track has been resurfaced following last year's rain cancellation, with four different front and rear tyre compounds to choose 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.
