Pramac’s Johann Zarco takes British MotoGP pole position with a new lap record at Silverstone.
The Frenchman will be joined on the front row by Aprilia’s Maverick Vinales and Ducati’s Jack Miller, while Fabio Quartararo and injured title rival Aleix Espargaro will start from the second row.
A limping Espargaro is back in action after his blistering 160km/h FP4, dealing with pain to briefly put his Aprilia on pole as he tries to close the 21-point gap on Quartararo on Sunday.
Reigning world champion and Silverstone winner Quartararo will have to serve a long lap penalty in the opening laps of the race and so needed a front row today more than ever.
Quartararo was on pole by 0.118 seconds when the final heat began, but the Yamaha star lost in the final few hectic laps to finish fourth, just ahead of Francesco Bagnaia.
The top eight riders were all short of Marc Marquez’s previous lap record.
Suzuki teammates Alex Rins and Joan Mir suffered in qualifying, finishing eleventh and twelfth.
Fabio Quartararo starts the British MotoGP, the first round after the summer break, with a reduced lead of 21 points over Aleix Espargaró after suffering his first DNF of the season in Assen.
Crucially, the French star will also have to serve a long-lap penalty at Sunday’s Silverstone race as punishment for forcing Espargaro off the track during the ill-judged pass, which finished off the Yamaha rider on the ground before a second accident ended his Dutch drama.
Both Quartararo and Espargaro have fond memories of last year’s Silverstone, when Quartararo won on Alex Rins’ Suzuki and Espargaro held off Jack Miller’s Ducati to claim his first RS-GP MotoGP podium.
Espargaro and Aprilia’s spectacular season means that, despite the Assen incident and the delivery of another almost certain podium in Barcelona, the Spaniard arrives in the UK looking for a sixth podium and second victory of the year
Pramac Ducati’s Johann Zarco is best of the rest in third, albeit 58 points adrift of Quartararo and still chasing a long-overdue win, with Factory Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia eight points behind after three wins and three DNFs in the last six races.
Silverstone will be Bagnaia’s first MotoGP event since his drink-driving incident in Ibiza.
Enea Bastianini (Gresini Ducati) and Jorge Martin (Pramac) remain locked in the battle to be Bagnaia’s team-mate in 2023, with Silverstone likely to be their last chance to impress before a decision is made at the end of august
Triple race winner Bastianini has dropped to fifth in the standings after his early season heroics, with 2021 winner Martin currently eleventh with two second places.
Just two points separate Brad Binder and future KTM team-mate Miller in the fight for sixth place in the championship, with the same slim margin separating Joan Mir and Alex Rins in their final season as Suzuki teammates.
Although Rins officially confirmed the switch to LCR Honda during the summer break, Mir’s expected move to Repsol Honda in place of Pol Espargaro is yet to be confirmed.
With Marc Marquez still recovering from his latest arm surgery, Espargaro, with the possibility of a return to KTM and Tech3 next season, is once again joined by HRC test rider Stefan Bradl this weekend.
