Pramac’s Johann Zarko takes center stage in the British MotoGP Championship by setting a new lap record at Silverstone.

The Frenchman will be joined in the front row by Aprilia Maverick Vinales and Ducati’s Jack Miller, while Fabio Quartararo and injured title rival Alex Espargaro will join the second row.

Limping Espargaro back on the court after soaring at 160km/h in FP4, defying the pain to briefly put Aprilia in pole position, as he seeks to close the 21-point lead over Quartaro on Sunday.

Quartararo, the winning world champion and defending champion at Silverstone, will have to take a long lap penalty in the early laps of the race and therefore needs the front row more than ever today.

Quartararo reached pole position by 0.118sec as the final round started, but the Yamaha star lost in frantic final laps and was pushed into fourth, directly ahead of Francesco Bagnaia.

The top eight runners were under Marc Marquez’s previous lap record.

His Suzuki teammates Alex Rins and Joan Mir struggled in qualifying, leaving 11th and 12th places.

Fabio Quartararo started the British MotoGP, the first event after the summer break, with a 21-point lead over Alex Espargaro after suffering his first DNF of the season at Assen.

Crucially, the French star will also need to serve a long-lap penalty at Silverstone on Sunday as a penalty for forcing Espargaro off the track during a faulty pass, which ended with the Yamaha rider on the ground before a second crash ended Dutch drama.

Quartararo and Espargaro both have fond memories of Silverstone from last year, when Quartararo won from Suzuki’s Alex Rins and Espargaro stepped on Jack Miller’s Ducati to claim the first-ever RS-GP motorcycle podium.

Espargaro and Aprilia’s impressive season means that despite the Assen incident and another near-certain podium handover in Barcelona, ​​the Spaniard has arrived in the UK in pursuit of his sixth podium finish and second this year.

Pramac Ducati’s Johan Zarco leads third, albeit 58 points from Quartararo and still chasing a long-awaited Serie A win, with Factory Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia eight points behind after collecting three wins and three DNFs in the last six races.

Silverstone will be Bagnaya’s first motorcycle event since his drunk driving accident in Ibiza.

Enea Bastianini (Gresini Ducati) and Jorge Martin (Pramac) are still stuck in a battle to be Bagnaia’s 2023 teammate, and Silverstone will likely be their last chance to impress before a decision is made at the end of August.

Triple race winner Bastianini slipped to fifth in the standings after his early championships in the season, with 2021 Championship winner Martin currently in 11th with a second place finish.

Only two points separate Brad Bender and future KTM teammate Miller in the fight for sixth place in the championship, with the same slim margin that splits Joan Mir and Alex Raines last season with their Suzuki teammates.

While Rins officially confirmed the switch to LCR Honda over the summer break, Mir’s expected move to Repsol Honda instead of Pol Espargaro has not been confirmed.

With Marc Marquez still recovering from his recent arm surgery, Espargaro – who is expected to return to KTM and Tech3 next season – is shared again by HRC test rider Stefan Bradel this weekend.
