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.

2021 Silverstone MotoGP FP4 Result: Quartararo Confirms His Speed Once More

The final practice session of the premier class brought a slight rise in temperature that saw more brave souls look towards the hard rear tyre but Fabio Quartararo was not one of them after his adventures on Friday. He had no need for it either, the Yamaha man setting an impressive and unrivalled pace throughout the session on the medium. The Frenchman started fast right out the gates and with a sizeable advantage that rivals steadily brought down to a quarter of a second at the checkered flag. Pol Espargaro came closest, ending the session second and closely followed by Pecco Bagnaia. The Marquez brothers did some more tandem riding early on, with Marc climbing into fourth position and Alex eventually dropping to 10th.

Alex Rins carried the flag for Suzuki in fifth place and as the final rider to post a time within half a second of the leader, while Joan Mir was left 18th after a bit of a moment on the hard rear tyre. Jack Miller was sixth quickest ahead of Aleix Espargaro’s Aprilia, with Valentino Rossi and Johann Zarco joining Alex Marquez in the top 10 positions. Enea Bastianini and Cal Crutchlow also posted times within a second of Quartararo’s, while Brad Binder was the lead KTM man in 13th place.

2021 Silverstone Moto3 Qualifying Result: Inevitable But Only Just

The first qualifying session of the day got underway under rare blue patches of sky and although the end result will not come as a surprise, Romano Fenati’s route to pole was not as smooth as anticipated. Given his speed throughout the weekend, the Italian left pitlane with a handful of devoted followers on his tail and spent a good few laps trying to shake them off, including a stroll through pitlane. Fenati was yet to post a time with one minute remaining of the session and was not helped by some yellow flags but one final flying lap proved to be enough to secure him pole position. Gabriel Rodrigo sailed through Q1 and held top spot in Q2 for much of the session but lost out on pole by four hundredths of a second. Riccardo Rossi also impressed on his way to third place and a front row start at Silverstone.

Andrea Migno’s late charge promoted him to fourth, the Italian opening the second row of the grid ahead of compatriot Niccolò Antonelli, who made a fast comeback from injury. Q1 graduate Filip Salac completed row two after a tricky time in FP3. Jeremy Alcoba was again on the naughty cruising list but managed to secure seventh place on the grid ahead of Dennis Foggia and Deniz Öncü. Jaume Masia in 10th place was over a second slower than the poleman and opens row four ahead of rookie Izan Guevara and Stefano Nepa.

Tatsuki Suzuki, Carlos Tatay and John McPhee make up row five in a particularly poor session for the Petronas boys, Darryn Binder ending up down in 16th place and sharing sixth row with Ayumu Sasaki, who crashed late in the session, and Lorenzo Fellon, whose persistence in following Fenati ended with a crash at turn 17.

Q1 was fairly entertaining as well and the two big surprises came from the title contenders, with Pedro Acosta not making much noise on his way to 22nd on the grid and Sergio Garcia making too much noise as he started off with a crash at turn 3 before even posting a time and then riding around some bike damage to 24th on the grid.

2021 Silverstone Moto2 FP3 Result: Canet Climbs To The Top

There was a hint of sunshine for the final practice session of the intermediate class but riders were in no hurry to improve their times from Friday and it was not until the final seven minutes of FP3 that Aron Canet demoted Raul Fernandez from the lead of the combined standings. Although the Spaniard soon followed it up with a crash at turn 9 following a slight clash with his compatriot, Canet kept top spot in the session. Remy Gardner came closest to challenging that, finishing second by three hundredths of a second. Jorge Navarro continued his solid run in Silverstone with third place, three tenths off the lead and another tenth ahead of Fabio Di Giannantonio, with Marco Bezzecchi joining the top 5.

Raul Fernandez dropped to sixth, ahead of Joe Roberts and Sam Lowes, while Nicolò Bulega and Marcel Schrotter completed the top 10 positions. Augusto Fernandez and Bo Bendsneyder were the last riders to post a time within a second of the leader and the final tickets straight to Q2 were secured by class veteran Tom Luthi and impressive newbie Fermín Aldeguer. Xavi Vierge was left to deal with Q1 after a late crash at turn 12 and will be joined there by the likes of Ai Ogura and some of the other names on the FP3 crash list: Albert Arenas and Stefano Manzi.

2021 Silverstone MotoGP FP3 Result: Miller Makes His Move

The cool conditions in Silverstone saw a lot of fresh soft rubber out to play in FP3 and a long fight for the top 10 positions, started, as usual, by the world champion attacking the timesheets halfway through the session. However, things didn’t really hot up – metaphorically more than literally – until Jack Miller demoted Fabio Quartararo from the lead of the combined standings for the final 12 minutes of FP3. Aleix Espargaro came closest to challenging him, less than a tenth behind the Ducati man and one hundredth of a second ahead of Jorge Martin, who was one of the last riders to improve on their Friday times, but he did so to join the top 3 in the final couple of minutes.

Fabio Quartararo dropped to fourth eventually but less than two tenths off the lead and showed great pace in his runs. Pecco Bagnaia was another of the late improvers but managed to join the top 5 while giving mentor Valentino Rossi a helpful tow into seventh position, to the delight of the spectators. The two Italians were separated by Pol Espargaro on the timesheets, the Spaniard continuing a solid weekend in Silverstone, despite a late tumble at Stowe.

After his early attack, Joan Mir continued to push to secure eighth place, while Brad Binder rejoined the top 10 in the final shootout and Marc Marquez secured the final ticket to Q2, less than four tenths off the leader’s time. Johann Zarco was the final rider to post a time within half a second of Miller and will entertain us in Q1 along with the likes of Takaaki Nakagami, Alex Marquez and Alex Rins, the Suzuki man crashing out at the busy Farm curve on a hot lap in the final handful of minutes.

2021 Silverstone Moto3 FP3 Result: Fenati Showing Off

Another cold morning in Silverstone meant that riders were slow to get up to speed and challenge for Q2 positions. Times eventually started to rival FP2 ones in the final 15 minutes of the session and the final shootout for the top 14 got underway with five minutes remaining, when Romano Fenati, who didn’t even need to go out to secure a Q2 ticket, did so regardless and casually improved his own all-time lap record by over half a second. With rivals busy tripping each other up, only Ayumu Sasaki managed to finish the session within half a second of the leader, while Darryn Binder, Jeremy Alcoba and Dennis Foggia posted times within a second of Fenati.

Jaume Masia in sixth was little over a second behind the top man and two tenths ahead of John McPhee and Tatsuki Suzuki, who both saved their day in the final time attack. Andrea Migno and Deniz Öncü completed the top 10 of the session, with Stefano Nepa missing out by three thousandths of a second. The remaining tickets directly to Q2 were handed out to Niccolò Antonelli, Riccardo Rossi and Lorenzo Fellon, who were fast enough in FP2, despite not improving their times on Saturday morning.

The last lap shenanigans left championship leader Pedro Acosta out of Q2 for now, by one hundredth of a second and will have serious competition in Q1 from the likes of Gabriel Rodrigo, Izan Guevara and title rival Sergio Garcia, whose attempt to put in a flying lap on his own did not serve him well either.
