2019 Silverstone Moto2 Qualifying Result: Catch Him If You Can

After MotoGP pulled a bit of a classic Moto3 dawdle, the intermediate class was in no mood for shenanigans and got straight down to business. It was the Spanish trio of Jorge Navarro, Augusto Fernandez and Alex Marquez who immediately stood out as the main contenders for pole position and amongst the three, it was the Marc VDS rider who will be starting his defence of the world championship lead from top spot. Navarro came closest to challenge his compatriot, making do with second on the grid by four hundredths of a second. Fernandez was third best, completing the front row of the grid with a best time two tenths of a second off pole.

Remy Gardner was best of the rest, opening the second row of the grid ahead of Xavi Vierge and Luca Marini. Tetsuta Nagashima in seventh position was the final rider within half a second of the leader, with Q1 survivor Brad Binder and local man Sam Lowes completing row three. Fabio Di Giannantonio rounded out the top ten ahead of Nicolo Bulega and with Tom Luthi making a rare mistake on his final flying lap, which left him stranded in 12th grid spot.

Marcel Schrotter led the escape out of Q1 but could not do any better than 13th position in a difficult weekend for the Dynavolt team, but will at least start ahead of Lorenzo Baldassarri, the Italian last in Q2 and over a second and a half slower than the poleman.
