Another cool and windy day at the Silverstone track, with track temperatures 13ºC lower than in 2013 (22º compared to 35º), meant that the pole position record was never in jeopardy, however, Marc came very close. His pole time of 2’00.829 on his final flying lap (6 of 7) was just 0.138s off his record lap here last year (2’00.691). Dani missed out on a front start by just 0.289s with his best lap of 2’01.464 also on his final flying lap of 7.

Tomorrow’s Grand Prix will commence at 13h00 local time.

TEAM QUOTES

Marc Marquez
1st - 2'00.829
“It was a difficult qualifying session, because it was hard to get heat into the front tyre. However, I am happy with pole position - more than anything because of how comfortable I am feeling this weekend. I am finding it easy to set a fast pace, and this is important at this track, which is bumpy and long. Let's hope that we have a sunny day tomorrow, or at least that it doesn't rain, and we will try to fight for the win right from the first lap.”

Dani Pedrosa
5th - 2'01.464
“Today was a positive day and we have taken a step forward from yesterday with the setup. The tyres also performed better today than in the previous practice sessions. However, I think that we still need to fine-tune the setup to get the tyres performing even better. Qualifying didn't go completely smoothly, but we were able to put in a good lap. It will be important to get a good start tomorrow and find a strong pace in the race.”
