Saturday action concludes as Zarco takes pole

Saturday action concludes as Zarco takes pole

Sunday’s intermediate class race at the Hertz British Grand Prix will start with Johann Zarco on pole, with Mika Kallio and Simone Corsi behind him on row one.

Frenchman Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) achieved his first Moto2™ pole and the first pole for Caterham in Grand Prix, with a 2’07.094 lap of Silverstone.

Title candidate Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team) and experienced Italian rider Corsi (NGM Forward Racing) will line up behind Zarco on row one, in second and third respectively.

Kallio’s teammate and championship rival Tito Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) appeared to be furious with himself at the end of QP, qualifying fourth but apparently feeling he had missed an opportunity to get onto the front row with a late charge.  

Rookie Jonas Folger (AGR Team) and Thomas Luthi (Interwetten Paddock Moto2) qualified just behind Rabat on row two, respectively in fifth and sixth.

The top ten was completed by home rider Sam Lowes (Speed Up), Maverick Viñales (Paginas Amarillas HP 40), Sandro Cortese (Dynavolt Intact GP) and Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team).

Tetsuta Nagashima (Teluru Team JiR Webike) will miss Sunday’s race after breaking a leg and damaging a shoulder in an FP3 crash, whilst veteran wild card Jeremy McWilliams (Brough Superior Racing) found the going tough in QP, crashing twice and recording a lap time nine seconds off the pace.

Dakota Mamola, substituting for Nico Terol in the Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2 outfit, qualified in 33rd place.
