2014 Silverstone MotoGP Qualifying Result: Hard Fight To The Very End

Result and summary of qualifying below:

Marc Marquez has taken his tenth pole position of the season, falling just short of his lap record from last year. The Repsol Honda rider displaced Jorge Lorenzo from pole on his penultimate lap, to claim his tenth pole of the year and the fourth in a row. 

Andrea Dovizioso bumped Lorenzo further down the order, the factory Ducati rider posting a number of impressive laps. Dovizioso set the fastest time in his first run behind Jorge Lorenzo, but he set the lap with which he claimed 2nd completely on his own. Dovizioso's time leaves Lorenzo in 3rd, but after his disastrous start on Friday, starting from the front row will be good enough for the Movistar Yamaha rider.

Aleix Espargaro heads up the second row, the Forward Yamaha rider making optimum use of the softer tire. Dani Pedrosa starts from fifth, with Valentino Rossi alongside rounding out the second row. Qualifying has been Rossi's weakness, so starting from the second row puts him in with a chance in the race.

Impressive was also Scott Redding, the Go&Fun Gresini rider showing great speed to get through to Q2 from Q1. Redding made good use of a tow from his teammate on his first run in Q1, but then improved his time without a tow, to finish ahead of Alvaro Bautista. Both men had run through their softer tires in Q1, leaving them with a tougher task in Q2.

2014 Silverstone Moto3 Qualifying Practice Result: Leading From The Front

Results and summary below:

Alex Rins has taken pole for Sunday's Moto3 race at Silverstone, the Estrella Galicia rider putting in a fast lap at the end of the session to open a gap over his teammate Alex Marquez. Rins and Marquez had swapped best times throughout qualifying, but Rins did enough at the end of the session to secure his third pole of the season.

Marquez was dropped to 3rd on the grid, after Niccolo Antonelli boosted his way to 2nd in the dying minutes of the session. Enea Bastianini heads up the second row of the grid, ahead of Brad Binder on the Ambrogio Mahindra and Alexis Masbou, fresh from his maiden win. 

Championship leader Jack Miller will start from 8th on the grid, not a strong position, but with a large group expected to battle tomorrow, it could be good enough. Romano Fenati had a disastrous qualifying and will have a much tougher job on his hands. Fenati starts from 22nd on the grid, and has his work cut out for him if he is to reach the front group.

2014 Silverstone Moto2 FP3 Result: Folger Leads Rabat And Vinales

Jonas Folger has topped the final session of free practice for the Moto2 class at Silverstone, the German taking a clear lead as the session came to an end. Tito Rabat took second, and could have been in for more had his bike not packed up on him as the session came to an end. As it was, it left him pushing his bike back to the pits. Maverick Vinales took third, just ahead of Rabat's Marc VDS teammate Mika Kallio. Marcel Schrotter took a strong fifth position, the Tech 3 bike clearly more suited to the Silverstone track.

The session was marred by a couple of serious crashes. Azlan Shah and Tetsuta Nagashima went  down early on, in a very ugly collision which caused the session to be red-flagged. Nagashima was transported to the medical center, where he was treated for hip and back injuries. After the session restarted, Axel Pons crashed heavily, and was left lying on the ground for a long time while he received treatment. The crash brought to an end a strong run of results for Pons at Silverstone, the Spaniard having performed very well so far this weekend.

2014 Silverstone MotoGP FP3 Result: Marquez Fastest, Lorenzo, Rossi And Pedrosa Back On The Pace

Dani Pedrosa, Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo rescued themselves from disaster on Saturday morning, all three rider finding the pace they had been missing and earning a passage straight to Q2. All three had struggled on the first day of practice, but qualified comfortably for Q2 in FP3.

But it was Marc Marquez once again topping free practice for the MotoGP class, the Repsol Honda man dominating FP3 right from the start. Just how hard Marquez was pushing became clear towards the end of the session, when he lowsided at the Loop, the front coming loose over a bump. Marquez was unhurt, and went on to post another hot lap before the end of the session.

Andrea Dovizioso was second fastest, getting very close to Marquez using the extra soft tire. But Dovizoso had been quick throughout, even when lapping on the medium tire, the hardest of the two options for the Ducatis. Dani Pedrosa took 3rd, ahead of the Movistar Yamahas of Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, restoring some semblance of the normal order. Pol Espargaro was the fastest of the Tech 3 satellite Yamahas, beating his teammate Bradley Smith by nearly a quarter of a second. Stefan Bradl ended the session in 7th, after falling heavily in the middle of the session, though he walked away unhurt.

There was also a dangerous moment at the end of the session. Marc Marquez was on a fast lap when he came across Jorge Lorenzo cruising on the racing line. Marquez was surprised, and missed Lorenzo by just a few centimeters.

Alex Rins has topped the time sheets following the third Moto3 Free Practice session at Silverstone, making the most of fine and sunny conditions the Estrella Galicia rider guided his Honda to a time of 2:14.273, which was over a second quicker than Danny Kent's benchmark Friday time. Fellow Spaniards Isaac Vinales and Alex Marquez completed the top three positions ahead of Jakub Kornfeil and top Mahindra rider Brad Binder.

2014 Silverstone Moto2 FP2: Rabat Leads Rivals In Second Practice

Moto2 Championship leader Tito Rabat lead the way during a shortened second Free Practice session at Silverstone, after early rain had cleared and the track had dried out the Spaniard managed to set a time of 2:08.652 which put him eight hundredths of a second ahead of fellow Kalex riders Simone Corsi and Jonas Folger. The morning's pace-setter Johan Zarco had to settle for fourth position aboard his Caterham Suter, finishing ahead of Maverick Vinales and Mika Kallio.

Briton Sam Lowes continued his strong home race showing to post the seventh fastest time, less than half a second behind Rabat while Dominique Aegerter, Sandro Cortese and Mattia Pasini completed the top ten. 50 year old British wild card rider Jeremy McWilliams managed to improve on his FP1 lap time by almost four seconds and put his Taylor Made-Brough Superior machine within 107% qualifying range for Sunday's race.

2014 Silverstone MotoGP FP2: Marquez Romps To Friday Clean Sweep

Marc Marquez has sent an ominous warning to his rivals following MotoGP FP2 at Silverstone as the Spaniard headed the majority of the field by over a second. As if responding to his 'disappointing' result from the previous round at Brno, Marquez circulated with calculated consistency to set a benchmark time of 2:02.126 which improved his morning time by more than one second and put him five tenths clear of fellow Honda rider Stefan Bradl. Andrea Dovizioso set the third fastest time but languished nearly four tenths further behind the session leader.

Bradley Smith gave the home crowd something to smile about on his way to setting the fourth quickest lap while Yonny Hernandez and Scott Redding extracted the maximum performance from their super soft rear tyres to take fifth and sixth positions respectively. Redding's performance was particularly outstanding given the horsepower disadvantage that he suffers aboard the production Honda racer.

While making it two Brits in the top ten Redding also managed to finish ahead of Andrea Iannone and the factory backed (and perhaps red-faced) Honda pairing of Alvaro Bautista and Dani Pedrosa. Aleix Espargaro took his Forward Racing Yamaha to tenth place and also managed to outshine some factory bike riders as Jorge Lorenzo, Pol Espargaro and Valentino Rossi struggled to get to grips with the Silverstone circuit.

2014 Silverstone Moto3 FP2: Kent On Top At Home

Local rider Danny Kent has topped a tightly contested second free practice for the Moto3 class at Silverstone in a session that once again saw lashings of sunshine sprinkled with the odd light rain shower. Kent managed to snatch top spot with his final lap, setting a time of 2:15.572 which put him less than a tenth clear of Niccolo Antonelli. Alex Rins posted the third fastest time ahead of KTM riders Isaac Vinales and Romano Fenati.

Alex Marquez lead the session briefly but had to settle for the sixth quickest lap while Mahindra's Miguel Oliveira and Brad Binder followed very closely behind. John McPhee claimed ninth position, the Scot managed to edge out fellow Racing Team Germany rider Efren Vazquez. After leading the morning session Championship leader Jack Miller looked unsettled throughout and spent a lot of time in the pits with his crew, he could only manage 23rd place.
