2014 British GP: MotoGP Qualifying Results - Marvellous Marquez Takes Tenth Pole

The MotoGP™ pole was secured by Marc Marquez in Q2 at the Hertz British Grand Prix, whilst Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo have also qualified on the front row.

Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) grabbed his tenth pole of the season right at the end of the qualifying shootout, clocking a 2’00.829 to secure the top spot on the gird as he looks for an immediate return to winning ways, after his fourth place Brno race finish.

Dovizioso (Ducati Team) made good use of the softer option qualifying tyre again to trail by 0.311s in second place.

Despite his troubles on Friday to get on the pace and to get the best from this weekend’s tyre allocation Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) qualified on row one in third place.

Aleix Espargaro (NGM Forward Racing) impressed once more on his Open Forward-Yamaha in fourth, qualifying ahead of factory equipped riders Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP).

Teammates Bradley Smith and Pol Espargaro (both Monster Yamaha Tech3) will line up on row three in seventh and eighth respectively. Stefan Bradl (LCR Honda MotoGP) ended up in ninth place, having escaped unscathed after two crashes earlier in the day.

Andrea Iannone (Pramac Racing) also crashed, in his case towards the end of Q2, leaving him tenth on the grid. Colleagues Scott Redding and Alvaro Bautista (both GO&FUN Honda Gresini) made it through from Q1 but could only qualify 11th and 12th.

Yonny Hernandez (Energy T.I. Pramac Racing) and Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team) missed out on Q2 in third and fifth in Q1, leaving them 13th and 15th respectively on the grid.

A crash towards the end of Q1 for Leon Camier (Drive M7 Aspar) hindered his progress, but the Briton walked away unhurt, qualifying 18th.

Moto2: Superb Saturday action concludes as Zarco takes pole

Sunday’s intermediate class race at the Hertz British Grand Prix will start with Johann Zarco on pole, with Mika Kallio and Simone Corsi behind him on row one.

Frenchman Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) achieved his first Moto2™ pole and the first pole for Caterham in Grand Prix, with a 2’07.094 lap of Silverstone.

Title candidate Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team) and experienced Italian rider Corsi (NGM Forward Racing) will line up behind Zarco on row one, in second and third respectively.

Kallio’s teammate and championship rival Tito Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) appeared to be furious with himself at the end of QP, qualifying fourth but apparently feeling he had missed an opportunity to get onto the front row with a late charge.

Rookie Jonas Folger (AGR Team) and Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) qualified just behind Rabat on row two, respectively in fifth and sixth.

The top ten was completed by home rider Sam Lowes (Speed Up), Maverick Viñales (Paginas Amarillas HP 40), Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP) and Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team).

Tetsuta Nagashima (Teluru Team JiR Webike) will miss Sunday’s race after breaking a leg and damaging a shoulder in an FP3 crash, whilst veteran wild card Jeremy McWilliams (Brough Superior Racing) found the going tough in QP, crashing twice and recording a lap time nine seconds off the pace.

Dakota Mamola, substituting for Nico Terol in the Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2 outfit, qualified in 33rd place.

Moto3: Top spot for rampant Rins on Silverstone grid

Alex Rins will get away from the front of the Moto3™ grid at the Hertz British Grand Prix on Sunday having taken pole, leading from Niccolo Antonelli and Alex Marquez in QP at Silverstone.

Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) produced a superb 2’13.112 lap to set a new pole position record time and grab the front position on the grid for race 12 of the year, ahead of Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN), by 0.112s.

Rins’ teammate Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0) held provisional pole with ten minutes to go, but was eventually 0.338s behind his colleague on the front row.

Meanwhile, the second row positions were secured by Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3), Brad Binder (Ambrogio Racing) and Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold).

Behind them Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing), standings leader Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) and Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team) will occupy the third row.

Niklas Ajo (Avant Tecno Husqvarna Ajo) completed the top ten, whilst Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3) was unlucky to slip to 11th after a mechanical problem. Local rider Danny Kent (Red Bull Husqvarna Ajo) rounded out the fourth row in 12th.

Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46) had a difficult session and qualified down in 22nd. Early in the QP wild card Jasper Iwema (KRP Abbink Racing) went down and limped away. He qualified 28th whilst fellow wild card Joe Irving (Redline Motorcycles/KTM UK) was 32nd.
