MotoGP British Grand Prix – Start time, how to watch & more

The Repsol Honda rider claimed his first pole for the team after Jorge Martin missed out by having his provisional pole time deleted for cutting the chicane at the Vale section of the Silverstone circuit.

That saw Espargaro rewarded with his third career MotoGP pole and Martin pushed back to fourth place, as Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia and Yamaha’s Fabio Quartararo were promoted to second and third respectively.

Marc Marquez had to settle for fifth place for Honda, having bounced back from a high-speed crash in FP1, with Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro completing the second row.

Despite topping FP3, Jack Miller could only manage seventh place in Q2 as he felt his qualifying was hampered by tyre issues with his Ducati.

Valentino Rossi enjoyed a small resurgence in eighth place for Petronas SRT Yamaha as Johann Zarco rounded out the fourth row on the Pramac Ducati having progress through from Q1.

Alex Rins also made it through from Q1 to qualify 10th, directly ahead of Suzuki team-mate Joan Mir, with Austrian GP winner Brad Binder taking 12th place for KTM.

Home riders Cal Crutchlow and Jake Dixon both struggled in qualifying and will line up on the grid in 19th and 21st place respectively.
