Rins wins the British MotoGP at Silverstone by 0.013s after a thrilling last-turn pass on Marquez.

The Suzuki rider spent most of the race shadowing Marquez, only briefly taking the lead until he cut under the Honda rider at the last possible moment,  through the fast Woodcote corner. Vinales completed the podium after steadily edging closer to the leading duo, but running out of laps.

It was the second time in as many races that Marquez has been beaten at the final corner, after Dovizioso in Austria.

But the Ducati rider didn't get beyond turn one after a scary incident saw rookie star Quartararo highside, with his fallen bike then wiping out Dovizioso, Marquez nearest title rival. The Italian, whose bike burst into flames after being launched into the air, was initially taken away on a stretcher before eventually standing up.

Zarco collided with fellow KTM rider Oliveira while trying to pass, taking them both out.

Silverstone was resurfaced following last year's rain cancellation, with four different front and rear tyre compounds to choose from this weekend. Lorenzo was making his return from back fractures at Assen, with Mir still absent after lung damage in the Brno test and replaced by Suzuki test rider Guintoli.

Mir aims to return at this week's Misano test.
