The 2015 British Grand Prix was won in dramatic style by Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Valentino Rossi who mastered the wet conditions at Silverstone to win ahead of Danilo Petrucci and Andrea Dovizioso.

A dry race was on the cards until a late change in the weather resulted in all riders riding into pit lane during the warm up lap to swap to their bikes fitted with wet tyres, resulting in race control deciding to restart the race. In the end all riders started and completed the race on the soft compound wet tyres front and rear as the rain continued for the full duration of the British Grand Prix.

Repsol Honda duo on first row with Marquez taking record breaking pole

Marc Marquez has racked up his sixth pole position of the season with teammate, Dani Pedrosa, clinching third.

It was a good day for the Repsol Honda team at Silverstone today, with both riders qualifying in the top three. Marc set the pace early in the qualifying session while Dani, who paced second fastest for much of the session, finished with the third fastest time.

The reigning MotoGP World Champion made his intentions clear from his first exit, taking the lead with a time of 2’00.564. During his second and final outing, Marc lowered his time to stop the clock at 2’00.234, a record breaking pole position time which he previously set in 2013 (2’00.691), which surpassed Jorge Lorenzo who qualified second by almost three tenths. This is Marc’s 28th pole in the MotoGP class, the only Spanish rider with more poles in the premier-class is Lorenzo with 31.

Dani joins his teammate on the front row in the third position, after being overtaken by Lorenzo in the closing stages of the session. The Respol Honda rider was less than two tenths off of the second position and less than half of a second off pole with his time of 2’00.716.

Bridgestone Press Release: Heat, Bumps, And Lap Records At Brno With Masao Azuma

Czech Republic MotoGP™ debrief with Masao Azuma
Tuesday, August 18 2015

Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Jorge Lorenzo was in complete control during last Sunday’s Czech Republic Grand Prix, the Spaniard winning ahead of Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi.

The weekend at Brno was characterised by high ambient and track temperatures, with things cooling off slightly on Sunday resulting in a peak track temperature of 42°C during the race. During Qualifying Practice 2 on Saturday, Lorenzo set a new Brno Circuit Best Lap record of 1’54.989 – beating Cal Crutchlow’s old record by half a second.

Q&A with Masao Azuma – Chief Engineer, Bridgestone Motorcycle Tyre Development Department

Many riders mentioned how poor the grip level was at Brno this year, particularly in hot conditions. How did Bridgestone help the riders manage track conditions which at times were quite challenging?
