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.
