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.
