Marc Marquez has performed flawlessly in the sessions leading up to the race at the British Grand Prix, leading every practice session and qualifying on pole. He led both practice rounds yesterday and did the same in both of today’s sessions, marking the end of the day with the best grid position for the race tomorrow. A positive day was also had by teammate Dani Pedrosa, who worked to improve on his setup and tomorrow will start from the center of the second row in fifth position.

Not even a crash in today’s first session –at the entry of the slow corner 14– marred the performance of the current World Champion. Marquez returned to the garage following the spill to reenter the track on his second bike to finish first on the timechart, while Pedrosa improved his previous day’s time by over a second to place him in third in the rankings. Both returned to the track for the final session, which saw Marquez clinching his tenth pole position of the season with Pedrosa taking fifth.

Tomorrow at 13:00 local time, the twelfth round of the MotoGP championship will be contended.

Marc Marquez 1st 2:00.829 31 laps 183 km
"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 34 laps 201 km
"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.".
