2022 Silverstone Moto2 Race Result: A Duel To The Line

The intermediate class got to close the show at Silverstone and did so in style, with a last lap all-Spanish showdown for victory. Experience paid off in the end, Augusto Fernandez taking a third consecutive victory to become the new championship leader, but Alonso Lopez was a formidable opponent all the way to the line, before settling for a well-deserved first podium in Moto2. Jake Dixon’s early struggles left him out of victory contention but he recovered to take the final podium position on home soil.

Despite his day ending with victory, Fernandez did not spend much time at the front, with Joe Roberts robbing him off the line and then Ai Ogura attacking for the lead at the end of the Hangar Straight. Lopez then came through from 8th on the grid to take control of proceedings by the start of the second lap, ahead of Ogura, Roberts and Fernandez, with Albert Arenas, Dixon and Aron Canet close behind. Celestino Vietti was getting ready to relinquish the lead in the championship after a sluggish start at the bottom of the top ten and a long lap penalty still to come.

Lopez built an early advantage of half a second over the first three laps, with Ogura, Roberts and Fernandez holding station behind the leader, while Canet was on a move early on, up to 5th after swiftly getting past Arenas and Dixon. The Spaniard was not to be stopped and soon after he picked up Roberts and Fernandez to join the provisional podium positions, six tenths behind Lopez and Ogura. Meanwhile, Vietti served his penalty on lap four and, after saving a crash on the long lap loop, he rejoined in 12th position and was quick to knock on the doors of the top 10, aided by an early tumble for Cameron Beaubier.

Back at the front, Lopez had a half second advantage by the time Canet became his main rival, having gotten past Ogura at Stowe corner. However, Canet was slow to bridge the gap to the leader and still had Ogura and Fernandez on his tail. Another half second behind, Dixon was pushing to join the victory battle and managed to tag along by lap nine, dropping Arenas. Tony Arbolino led Roberts another second and a half behind, while Vietti was down in ninth, five and a half seconds behind the leader.

The leader himself was pretty untroubled, picking up the pace to extend his advantage to a full second by the end of lap 10. The foursome behind him were a little more entertaining, Fernandez keeping Canet busy while Dixon was challenging Ogura, but the shenanigans between them didn’t help them bridge the gap to the runaway leader. On the other hand, there was no challenge from behind once Arenas crashed out at turn four with eight laps remaining, the incident also sending Arbolino wide and out of the top 10.

Lopez finally started to drop a few tenths here and there with six laps remaining and it was mostly down to the hot pace set by Fernandez behind him. Once he got in the lead of the chasing group, the poleman extended a one second gap over the rest of the pursuers with ease, hunting down his compatriot for the remaining handful of laps and leaving Dixon, Canet and Ogura to decide the final podium position. Fernandez sniffed around Lopez until the final lap, but the youngster defended admirably to start that last lap ahead by a mere nine thousandths of a second. Fernandez had to wait until Brooklands to make a move stick, but it was timed to perfection to secure victory by seven hundredths of a second. Dixon closed the gap somewhat on the final lap, after he finally dropped Canet, who faded on the last lap and allowed Ogura to claim fourth.

Vietti saved a sixth position in the end but had to surrender the lead in the world championship to the victorious Fernandez, the Spaniard now leading the way by 13 points from Ogura. Vietti drops to third, 15 points behind, with Canet a more sizeable 44.

2022 Silverstone MotoGP Race Result: Close Encounters Of The Moto3 Kind

The premier class truly made the best of the beautiful conditions at Silverstone and served a Moto3-style special, with a sizeable group of contenders keen to challenge for the podium. Despite the strong competition over 20 laps, Pecco Bagnaia returned to the top step of the podium to claim back to back victories and give Ducati only their second victory at the track. The Italian was in familiar company in parc fermé, with Maverick Viñales taking back to back podiums in second and Jack Miller also joining his teammate in third.

Poleman Johann Zarco had made a strong start off the line and immediately found himself in the company of compatriot Fabio Quartararo and with the factory Ducatis in tow, Miller ahead of Bagnaia. Alex Rins proved that he hadn’t forgotten his way around Silverstone as he went from 11th on the grid to 5th on the opening lap, ahead of both Aprilias, while teammate Joan Mir also got ahead of Jorge Martin and Miguel Oliveira. On the other hand, the likes of Enea Bastianini, Marco Bezzecchi and Luca Marini dropped out of the top 10 on the opening lap.

Zarco and Quartararo quickly extended a slight gap over the Ducatis, but not enough to keep the world champion ahead by the time he had to serve his long lap penalty on lap 4. He was somewhat helped by Rins, who started mingling with the Ducatis and slowing them down, the Frenchman rejoining the action behind the trio, in fifth position. Zarco was left in a slightly more comfortable lead but while all eyes were on Quartararo’s long lap adventure, the poleman slid out of contention at turn 8, after only five laps. Miller inherited the lead but was immediately under pressure from Rins, the Silverstone specialist taking control of the leading pack by the end of lap 6.

With Rins immediately attempting an escape at the front, Quartararo was struggling to keep up with the two factory Ducatis and had Martin sniffing around. The Pramac man breezed past the Yamaha on the Hangar Straight to join his colleagues’ chase of Rins, although the Suzuki’s advantage was nearing one full second by lap 8. The gap started slowly coming down once Bagnaia picked up the chase, while the exchanges between Miller and Martin allowed Quartararo and the Aprilias to get closer, although the chasing group was still significant in numbers, the likes of Mir, Oliveira, Binder and Bastianini still in contention. While Bagnaia was reeling in Rins, Viñales was the man on the move amongst the chasers, getting past Quartararo and closing the slight gap to the Ducatis ahead, keeping the Yamaha at a safe distance.

Bagnaia was right on Rins’ tail at the halfway point of proceedings and the attack came two laps later at Stowe, the Italian taking the lead with nine laps remaining, but not stretching much of an advantage at the front. He was helped somewhat by teammate Miller getting past Rins with 7 laps left, but the leading pack was still pretty sizable with 10 men still in contention. Bastianini was the fastest man of the lot at this stage, despite losing some aero appendages early in the race, and the Gresini rider swiftly got past Oliveira, Aleix Espargaro and Mir and set off to challenge Quartararo, who was a trickier proposition. The leading group reduced slightly when Mir crashed out of 8th position with six laps remaining.

Despite a track limits warning on his scorecard, Bagnaia maintained a half second advantage over Miller and Rins in the next few laps, while Viñales finally found a way around Martin to claim fourth and Bastianini settled the score with Quartararo for sixth. Viñales’ charge continued as he overtook a fading Rins with four laps remaining and then attacked Miller one lap later. That left the Spaniard with a six-tenth deficit to recover on Bagnaia over the remaining three laps and Viñales was already attacking the Italian on the penultimate lap.

The duo entered the final lap separated by only a couple tenths of a second, but a scrappy last lap from Viñales allowed Bagnaia to take the chequered flag with four tenths of a second’s advantage. Viñales and Miller joined him on the podium, with Bastianini getting past Rins and Martin in consecutive laps to claim fourth place. Martin kept fifth, while Oliveira’s late charge demoted Rins another position to seventh. Despite still feeling the consequences of his FP4 high-side over 20 long laps, Aleix Espargaro still had a go at Quartararo on the final lap, but the Frenchman reclaimed eighth place, leaving the Aprilia man ninth. Marco Bezzecchi rounded out the second closest top 10 in premier class history, the rookie only 6.6 seconds behind the winner.

Although seemingly underwhelmed by the result, Quartararo extends his advantage in the world title battle to 22 points over Espargaro, while victor Bagnaia closes the gap to 49 points. Bastianini’s late charge gains him one position in the standings, but at a distant 62 points from the leader.

2022 Silverstone Moto3 Race Result: A Dramatic Return To Action

Fresh off a bout of sunbathing, lightweight class riders were in top form as race day got underway at Silverstone and the usual chaos ensued over 17 long laps under the sun. With over a dozen riders in contention amongst the leaders, it predictably came down to the final lap, when Dennis Foggia made an enthusiastic return to the top step of the podium. The Italian had to fend off a particularly feisty Jaume Masia, whose qualifying woes left him 21st on the grid but didn’t stop him from making another impressive comeback onto the second step of the podium. Deniz Öncü was another consistent fixture at the front of the pack but eventually had to settle for a solid third place.

The main actors were slightly different as the lights went off on the grid, when poleman Diogo Moreira was immediately challenged by his front row colleagues, Izan Guevara and Ryusei Yamanaka. Guevara was in charge of proceedings at the start of lap two, but Öncü had come to the fore as well, with Ayumu Sasaki making some early progress to join the leaders. While Moreira was kept busy by the Leopard Racing machines, championship leader Sergio Garcia was still lingering at the bottom of the top 10 and trying to bridge an early half second deficit to the leading group ahead. David Muñoz was keen to be in the mix as well and despite a long lap penalty dropping him down to 14th early on, the rookie was quick to recover ground and rejoin the leaders.

Although Guevara kept the lead of the group for the next couple of laps, there was quite a queue forming behind him, with Öncü, Tatsuki Suzuki and John McPhee in prime position to challenge the Spaniard. However, the first challenge that stuck came from Foggia, who attacked at the start of lap 6 to take control of the feisty pack. Masia had joined the list of challengers meanwhile, the Spaniard making quick progress in a handful of laps, from 21st on the grid right up to 5th, while compatriot Garcia was still lingering at the bottom of the top 10.

Foggia’s mistake at Brooklands allowed rivals to squabble for the lead, first Guevara, then Suzuki and Öncü taking turns at the front on lap 7. Foggia quickly composed himself to reclaim prime position one lap later, while a particularly busy turn 7 pushed Guevara out of the top 5 and left him directly behind his teammate.

Having teammate Suzuki as a wingman over the next couple laps helped Foggia extend a half second gap over the rest of the pack by lap 10, while Suzuki battled the likes of Muñoz, Öncü and Sasaki. Back in the title battle, Garcia finally had the upper hand, helped by Guevara struggling to improve on 10th position, stuck in between Dani Holgado and McPhee. Meanwhile, Moreira and Yamanaka were still in leading group but close to slipping out of point scoring positions in 14th and 15th.

Although Foggia continued his march at the front, Suzuki could not keep rivals behind for much longer and Öncü managed to bridge the gap to the leader with 7 laps remaining, the Turkish rider attacking one lap later. Öncü and the Leopard boys continued their exchanges and the KTM rider was back in charge of proceedings with 4 laps remaining, but some new challengers had emerged. A notable presence amongst the leading group was that of Ivan Ortolá, the rookie joining the top five after starting 18th on the grid, ahead of Masia and Muñoz, who had kept him company towards the back of the grid as well. Ortolá went on to briefly take the lead with 3 laps remaining, but his rollercoaster of a race was soon to come hurtling back down – much like the Aspar boys were about experience. Garcia had climbed as high as fourth for those final laps but disaster struck when he got tagged by Sasaki at turn 13, taking both riders out in the gravel. That handed the lead in the world championship to teammate Guevara, who was still stuck at the bottom of the top 10, but Stowe found with Guevara in the wrong place at the wrong time, on the outside of an unlucky Ortolá crashing out on the final lap.

Back at the front, Öncü had held onto the lead going into that final lap, but Foggia and Masia attacked at the right time to avoid the chaos behind and sneak ahead on the podium. The last lap shenanigans also saw Suzuki and Muñoz crash out and while the gravel was still settling, Foggia took the chequered flag two tenths of a second ahead of Masia and Öncü. Kaito Toba came out of pretty much nowhere to claim fourth, ahead of Stefano Nepa and poleman Moreira. McPhee, Yamanaka, Andrea Migno and Carlos Tatay completed the top 10 after the eventful final handful of laps.

The dramatic final couple of laps restored the status quo in the world championship standings, Garcia maintaining a three-point advantage over Guevara, while Foggia’s victory helped him back into the fight, reducing his deficit to 42 points.

2022 Silverstone Moto2 Qualifying Result: A Tango To Pole

The final battle of the day was that of the intermediate class and once the local favourite wiped himself out of contention, the fight came down to Augusto Fernandez and Joe Roberts. The American started the session at the top of the timing screens before getting challenged by the Spaniard with five minutes remaining. The two traded places once more on their respective final flying laps and Fernandez was the eventual winner, the Red Bull KTM rider taking his first pole position in a couple of years. Although Roberts tried to retaliate, he came three hundredths of a second short and settled for second, with Ai Ogura completing the front row of the grid.

Albert Arenas got demoted to the second row in the final couple of minutes of Q2 and will be joined by Celestino Vietti and Jake Dixon, both of whom sampled the gravel during Q2. Dixon was first to crash at turn 14, with five minutes left on the clock, but was able to pick up the bike and climb back into sixth position. Vietti was less lucky, following his example at turn 9 but unable to rejoin and lucky to save fifth place out of only three timed laps. However, the championship leader will lose some more ground after the first few laps on Sunday, having to serve a long lap penalty for his poor practice-start etiquette on Friday.

Bo Bendsneyder made a late jump into seventh position, joined by Alonso Lopez and Marcel Schrotter on the third row, while Aron Canet somewhat underwhelmingly rounded out the top 10, opening fourth row ahead of Tony Arbolino and Q1 leader Jorge Navarro. Cameron Beaubier shares fifth row with rookies Jeremy Alcoba and Manuel Gonzalez, with Somkiat Chantra starting 16th, ahead of the Gresini duo of Filip Salac and Alessandro Zaccone on sixth row.

2022 Silverstone MotoGP Qualifying Result: No Dinosaurs Were Harmed In The Making Of This Pole

The premier class returned fast and fresh from their long summer break and put on a quickfire show to open the second half of the season. While all eyes were on Aleix Espargaro’s fitness as he got back on track following the nasty high-side in FP4, it was the Pramac Racing duo keeping top spot warm throughout the session. After some early tentative laps, Espargaro was suddenly on course for pole on his second outing, posting the first 1:57 time on a MotoGP bike around Silverstone – but as impressive as that was, the Spaniard found himself down in sixth position in the blink of an eye, with the timing screens covered in red. The honour to claiming the new all-time lap record eventually went to Johann Zarco, despite the Frenchman being short on winglets compared to some of his Ducati colleagues. Almost as impressive was Maverick Viñales, who secured his first front row start for Aprilia, while Jack Miller put the Desmosaurus into third place on the grid, a tenth and a half off pole.

Fabio Quartararo had to settle for fourth, the world championship leader particularly grumpy as he faces the prospect of the long lap penalty losing him even more ground on Sunday. It won’t be helped by having Pecco Bagnaia breathing down his neck from fifth on the grid, with Espargaro filling the second row despite concussion to both ankles. Marco Bezzecchi was KTM’s number one enemy in Q1, as he demoted both their riders to steal a Q2 place away and then climbed as high as seventh on the grid, sharing third row with Q1 leader Enea Bastianini and early Q2 pacesetter Jorge Martin.

Luca Marini completed the top ten, half a second off pole and sharing fourth row with the rather anonymous Suzukis of Alex Rins and Joan Mir. The KTMs and Hondas were left out in the cold of Q1, with Miguel Oliveira leading Brad Binder on the fifth row, and Alex Marquez the top Honda in the middle of sixth row, after a light tumble.

2022 Silverstone MotoGP FP4 Result: Zarco Leads After Big Tumble For Espargaro

The final practice outing of the day came with its fair share of drama, with a big high side for the quickest man of the weekend so far, Aleix Espargaro taking a painful-looking tumble at turn 12 and returning to the Aprilia garage with a notable limp but thankfully no fractures. While cameras followed the Spaniard on his trip to the medical centre and back, Johann Zarco claimed top spot on track, half a tenth quicker than Maverick Viñales and Jack Miller. Miguel Oliveira found some pace to climb into fourth, with the reigning world champion rounding out the top five positions.

Jorge Martin in sixth was half a second off top spot, while Alex Rins was the lead Suzuki this time around, in seventh position. Marco Bezzecchi, Brad Binder and Joan Mir completed the top 10, with Enea Bastianini just behind, as the final rider to post a time within a second of the leader. Having done only a couple of laps, Aleix Espargaro dropped to 12th, still quicker than the quickest Honda, although Takaaki Nakagami also joined the crash list with a lighter tumble at turn 13. Despite a cold hard rear tyre presumably contributing to Espargaro’s incident, plenty of riders were keen to test it out during the session. Pecco Bagnaia was not tempted but he did not get much airtime down in 21st place, except for a bit of grass-tracking.

2022 Silverstone Moto3 Qualifying Result: Back and Better

Qualifying at the British GP got underway under nearly spotless skies, and it was a truly spotless performance from Diogo Moreira, the rookie back to his best and posting the top time only two laps into the session, which was never to be outdone. In addition to Moreira’s maiden pole position, the MT Helmets squad also got to celebrate Ryusei Yamanaka’s first front row start, the duo bookending the front row, with a less surprising Izan Guevara filling in the middle.

Q1 leader Riccardo Rossi impressed in Q2 as well, missing out on the front row by only three hundredths of a second, while Stefano Nepa in fifth was less than two tenths off pole. After a solid showing in practice, Deniz Öncü secured a second row start rom sixth on the grid. Despite taking prime position in FP3, there were no fireworks from the Leopard Racing duo in Q2, Dennis Foggia finishing three hundredths of a second quicker than Tatsuki Suzuki – the teammates opening row three from Ayumu Sasaki.

Friday’s leader, John McPhee, faded somewhat in the background, only qualifying 10th, while Sergio Garcia managed to escape Q1 and climb into 11th, putting his teammate into prime position to rob him of the lead in the championship come Sunday. Garcia will also have to contend with Dani Holgado on the fourth row, ahead of a strong fifth row made up of Andrea Migno, Kaito Toba and Q1 graduate Xavier Artigas. Amongst the notable losses in Q1 were David Muñoz, who missed out by one tenth of a second, Jaume Masia, who will be starting in a pretty anonymous 21st place and Scott Ogden, the home favourite particularly upset to be starting 24th after a strong showing throughout practice.
