2021 Silverstone Moto2 Race Result: The Agony And The Ecstasy

The intermediate class served the dessert at the end of a MotoGP ready meal in Silverstone and the remaining spectators enjoyed a showdown to the final lap between the championship leader and the poleman. Remy Gardner was the eventual victor over 18 laps, while Bezzecchi settled for second and Jorge Navarro returned to the podium after over a year off it.

Bezzecchi had made a good start from pole but Sam Lowes went around the outside at Becketts to lead the way by the end of the first lap from the poleman, Navarro and the KTM Ajo boys. Bezzecchi got back ahead at Brooklands one lap later and Gardner promptly joined the podium positions ahead of Navarro, leaving teammate Raul Fernandez in 6th, behind Di Giannantonio and ahead of Augusto Fernandez. Gardner’s next victim was Lowes on lap 4 and the championship leader pursued Bezzecchi for the next lap. The Australian attacked at Farm curve on lap 5 but Bezzecchi fought back at Stowe and resumed the lead. While Lowes, Navarro and Di Giannantonio kept in touch with the leading duo, the Fernandezes kept each other busy one second behind that podium battle.

Bezzecchi almost threw it all away at Aintree as he briefly lost the front and Gardner narrowly avoided a collision, but the duo finished lap six unscathed and trading places once more. Gardner pushed at the front but couldn’t shake off Bezzecchi, who reclaimed the lead at Stowe on lap 9, the exchanges allowing Lowes back into contention. However, the trio distanced Navarro and Di Giannantonio, who were slowly getting reeled in by Augusto and Raul Fernandez.

Things settled a little bit for the next few laps and Bezzecchi held onto the lead until seven laps remaining, when Gardner attacked once more at Village and picked up prime spot. Lowes was pushing to stay in the victory battle but then dropped almost a second back with four laps remaining, while Navarro was getting closer from behind. Navarro got ahead of the home favourite that same lap, but the cameras didn’t linger too long on that exchange, as Raul Fernandez crashed out of seventh place at Farm curve, in a big blow to his championship chances.

Agony for Fernandez and ecstasy for Gardner, who had broken away with Bezzecchi and left Navarro defending third place from Lowes. Bezzecchi kept close on the final lap but couldn’t find any weakness in Gardner and the championship leader secured victory over the Italian. Navarro took third, leaving Lowes fourth, while Di Giannantonio got past Augusto Fernandez on the final lap to reclaim fifth. Aron Canet, Xavi Vierge, Ai Ogura and Joe Roberts completed the top 10.

Gardner’s fifth victory in the intermediate class and his teammate’s disastrous result grows the gap between them in the championship standings to 44 points, with Bezzecchi 52 points down.

2021 Silverstone MotoGP Race Result: Three Parties In Silverstone

Although stands were sensibly full, the one spectator who did not turn up in Silverstone as expected was the sun, temperatures lower than predicted as riders lined up on the grid. That did not stop the premier class from putting on a show on their long-awaited return to the British GP and Fabio Quartararo perhaps predictably served a faultless ride to become the seventh different winner in the last seven visits to Silverstone. The Frenchman brought Yamaha back to the limelight on British soil after 20 impressive laps but the rest of the podium men had plenty to celebrate too. Having started 10th on the grid, Alex Rins pulled off another of his comebacks to claim his first podium of the season, but perhaps the biggest cheer in pitlane came from the Aprilia box, after Aleix Espargaro rode a feisty last lap to secure their first podium in MotoGP.

The hierarchy looked a little different at the start of those 20 laps, when surprise poleman Pol Espargaro kept the lead into turn 1, closely followed by Quartararo, Aleix Espargaro, Pecco Bagnaia, Marc Marquez and Jorge Martin. Although the Ducatis had made a nervy start, they quickly recovered their original positions. The poleman had extended a half second gap immediately from brother Aleix, Bagnaia and Quartararo, who traded places a few times on that first lap, but the threat from Marquez and Martin never materialised as the Spanish duo tangled and ended their race at turn 9. That promoted Jack Miller to 5th place ahead of Valentino Rossi and the two Suzukis. Johann Zarco was one second behind the chasing group and ahead of Takaaki Nakagami and Alex Marquez, who made solid progress from 17th on the grid to knock on the doors of the top 10 early on, together with Brad Binder.

Back at the front, Aleix Espargaro had reeled in his brother by lap 3 and attacked him at Stowe but the overly optimistic move dropped him back to second. Meanwhile, Quartararo got past Bagnaia and set off for the Espargaros, leaving the factory Ducatis in the company of Joan Mir. Both Suzukis had gotten past Rossi at this stage, who was soon getting harassed by the LCR men and was starting to fade.

Quartararo soon broke up the Espargaro party as he got past Aleix one lap later and broke away from the chasers in his pursuit of the poleman. Pol Espargaro lost the lead on lap 5, at Farm curve, and Quartararo immediately attempted to stretch a gap at the front, getting a one second advantage over the next half a lap. Aleix became his closest Espargaro after he got past his brother one lap later, but the Aprilia man could not keep up with the Yamaha’s pace and the gap to the leader continued to increase. The Espargaros also had a sizeable group behind them, including the Suzukis and the factory Ducatis, who had an advantage of 1.5 seconds on the remaining Marquez and Rossi.

Quartararo continued to steadily increase his lead, up to 2 seconds over Aleix by lap 8, while Pol got pushed off the provisional podium by Rins. Status quo was maintained to the halfway point of the race, with no moves made in the top 10, but Mir and the Ducatis seemed to be losing touch with the podium battle. Rins became the favourite in that particular battle when he attacked for second with 9 laps remaining, helped by Aleix Espargaro running wide and leaving the siblings to duel it out for the final podium position. One second behind, Miller took up the pursuit from Mir and less than two seconds behind, Alex Marquez got past a quickly fading Bagnaia for seventh place.

While Quartararo was managing a three second gap to Rins, the Suzuki man couldn’t shake off the Espargaros and Miller also joined the party for the final 7 laps, leaving Mir over two seconds behind. A mistake from Pol Espargaro at Stowe made things easier for Miller, who claimed fourth, but finding a way past Aleix proved more difficult, the Aprilia man keeping the Ducati behind until the final lap.

While Fabio wrapped up his cruise to victory, Rins, Aleix Espargaro and Miller started that final lap in close proximity and the pressure was on the Aprilia man to defend a precious podium from Miller. The Australian had one try to overtake but Aleix retaliated immediately at turn 14 and defended beautifully to secure third place at the checkered flag. Pol Espargaro finished four seconds later in fifth, with Binder pulling off another late comeback to make it six manufacturers in the top six. The KTM man had caught up with Mir with three laps remaining and the reigning world champion also got demoted by Iker Lecuona and Alex Marquez, dropping him to 9th place.

Quartararo’s masterful display coupled with underwhelming results for his closest challengers in the championship standings sees the Frenchman extend his advantage to 65 points from Mir. Zarco, who finished 11th, is 69 points behind his compatriot, while Bagnaia’s 14th place finish dropped him to fourth, another point back.

2021 Silverstone Moto3 Race Result: True To Form

Race day in Silverstone was just as overcast as any other day this weekend but slightly higher temperatures welcomed the lightweight class for their opening act. If practice and qualifying results made victory a foregone conclusion, Niccolò Antonelli did his best to go against the prediction and apply some pressure on runaway poleman Romano Fenati. However, 17 laps later, Fenati confirmed his superiority around Silverstone once again and provided us with the first winner from pole of this Moto3 campaign. Antonelli finished one second away from victory in a phenomenal comeback from injury and was joined on the podium by Dennis Foggia, who made it an all-Italian top 3 after a fought-out final lap of the race.

Fenati was nearly untouchable from the start, the poleman leading the way into turn 1 despite a challenge from front row starter Gabriel Rodrigo. The Argentinian rider immediately started going backwards instead and allowed Antonelli, Andrea Migno and Riccardo Rossi past. Having shared a start on the 8th row of the grid, title contenders Pedro Acosta and Sergio Garcia quickly recovered to knock on the doors of the top 15 by the end of lap 1.

By lap 2, Antonelli was the only rider close enough to attack Fenati, with Migno also eager to join the battle for victory and doing so one lap later, while the chasing group led by Rossi and Darryn Binder had dropped almost a second back. Another second down the road, Acosta and Garcia were engaging in direct battle just outside the top 10 while trying to bridge the gap to the sizeable group ahead.

The Italian leading trio stretched a one and a half seconds gap by lap 4 and the exchanges between Binder, Foggia and Rossi seemed to be helping their escape. Jaume Masia, Tatsuki Suzuki, Izan Guevara and Deniz Öncü were also part of the chasing group, with Garcia not making much of an impression in their pursuit.

Back at the front, Antonelli and Migno were not showing a wheel to Fenati yet but were keeping him close in their sights. Migno however, never got a shot at victory, as he had to retire with a mechanical issue on lap 6, leaving his two compatriots in the lead and with Foggia inheriting third at the helm of the chasing group that suddenly found itself battling for a podium position. Migno’s bad luck also promoted Acosta to the top 10 but the championship leader had over three seconds to find if he was to join the sizeable third place battle and Garcia was still keeping him busy with the occasional overtake. However, the main championship contenders were not alone, with John McPhee, Carlos Tatay and Filip Salac demoting them every so often, while Rodrigo had dropped all the way down to 19th by lap 8.

Fenati started the final half of the race still in the lead but with Antonelli in close proximity and Foggia still holding onto third, almost four seconds down the road. While Guevara, Binder, Suzuki and Masia were biding their time to attack for the podium, Öncü and Rossi lost touch with that group but were a safe six seconds ahead of the battle for 10th place, where Acosta and Garcia were not having it all their own way. With the exception of that particularly feisty group, things were unusually quiet for a Moto3 race at the front, Antonelli yet to attack Fenati as the race entered its final five laps and the gap between the two seemed to be growing from then on.

The leading Italians entered the final lap separated by one full second and Antonelli’s focus turned to the threat behind him, where Foggia and Guevara were closing in for the final couple of laps. The duo got within half a second of Antonelli, but the KTM rider held onto second place. Guevara sniffed around Foggia for a long time before making his bid for the podium at the start of the final lap, but Foggia retaliated soon after at Abbey and secured third place. Guevara settled for fourth as his best result of the season, with Suzuki leading Masia and Binder over the finish line in the battle for fifth. Öncü and Rossi took the checkered flag seven seconds later, while the battle for 10th was still raging on over the final lap and saw Tatay come out on top. The frequent exchanges left Acosta outside of point scoring positions with three laps to go, but a several of fortunes saw him climb up to 12th on the last lap, while rival Garcia lost a lot of ground and dropped to 16th place.

As if Acosta needed the help, a late track limits penalty for John McPhee promoted him to 11th position and handed him an extra point in the championship standings, leaving Garcia 46 points behind, with victor Fenati 69 points down on the leader.

2021 Silverstone Moto2 Qualifying Result: Last Minute Showdown

Silverstone was overcast but reasonably warm for the final qualifying session of the day and it looked like a pretty tame affair at first, with Sam Lowes looking comfortable in provisional pole for much of Q2. However, a very late attack from Marco Bezzecchi saw him take pole with the all-time lap record on his final flying lap. The Italian will lead the way off the line from Jorge Navarro, who followed up a solid performance throughout practice with second on the grid, while Lowes dropped to third but was less than a tenth off pole.

A front row without Remy Gardner and Raul Fernandez is a pretty strange sight but the Red Bull KTM Ajo duo will look good with a second row start ahead of Fabio Di Giannantonio – the Italian only three tenths of a second off pole. Augusto Fernandez opens row three from Aron Canet and Q1 qualified Xavi Vierge. Joe Roberts completed the top 10, one second off the poleman and sharing fourth row with Nicolò Bulega and Q1 leader Stefano Manzi. The rest of the men who escaped Q1 were a bit lower down the list, rookie Ai Ogura down in 14th and Somkiat Chantra 18th, with another notable mention going to Fermín Aldeguer, the teenager qualifying 16th and ahead of veteran Tom Luthi.

2021 Silverstone MotoGP Qualifying Result: A Great Day For Pole

At the end of FP4 it looked like a straightforward plotline for qualifying in the premier class and Fabio Quartararo seemed to confirm that by posting the first 1:58 time of the weekend on his very first flying lap. However, his advantage was not as big as you’d expect, only three tenths or so heading into the second run of laps, when Pol Espargaro flashed at the top of the timing screens for a brief second. It was only brief because Jorge Martin went faster by almost nine tenths of a second, with an unreal advantage of well over a second in sector two, raising lots of eyebrows across pitlane when he crossed the finish line in pole. After an exceedingly long moment of confusion, it turned out that Martin had cut the corner at turn 8 and pole position went back to its rightful – if unlikely – owner, Pol Espargaro. The Spaniard takes his first pole position of the season after a tough start to his life with Honda, while Pecco Bagnaia missed out by two hundredths of a second.

Quartararo wasn’t even on the front row when the checkered flag came out but was promoted back to third once Martin’s time got cancelled and the Pramac rider will start fourth. Marc Marquez’s enthusiastic approach to track limits left him with no lap time posted after his first run but the Spaniard eventually climbed onto the second row of the grid, ahead of compatriot Aleix Espargaro.

Jack Miller in seventh place was half a second off pole and ahead of an impressive showing from Valentino Rossi in eighth. Johann Zarco ruled the roost in Q1 on his way to 9th on the grid, while the most recent victor at Silverstone, Alex Rins, leads Suzuki teammate Joan Mir on the fourth row, where they will be joined by Brad Binder.
