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.

2014 Silverstone Moto3 FP3: Rins Ahead As Pace Hots Up

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.

Championship leader Jack Miller recovered from his shaky FP2 session yesterday to post the sixth quickest time almost four tenths behind Rins. Italian rider Niccolo Antonelli claimed seventh position from Miguel Oliveira, Romano Fenati and Juanfran Guevara rounded out the top ten. 

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.
