Top spot for Rins on Silverstone grid

Alex Rins will get away from the front of the Moto3™ grid at the Hertz British Grand Prix on Sunday having taken pole, leading from Niccolo Antonelli and Alex Marquez in QP at Silverstone.

Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) produced a superb 2’13.112 lap to set a new pole position record time and grab the front position on the grid for race 12 of the year, ahead of Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN), by 0.112s.

Rins’ teammate Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0) held provisional pole with ten minutes to go, but was eventually 0.338s behind his colleague on the front row.

Meanwhile, the second row positions were secured by Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3), Brad Binder (Ambrogio Racing) and Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold).

Behind them Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing), standings leader Jack Miller (Red Bull KTM Ajo) and Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team) will occupy the third row.

Niklas Ajo (Avant Tecno Husqvarna Ajo) completed the top ten, whilst Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3) was unlucky to slip to 11th after a mechanical problem. Local rider Danny Kent (Red Bull Husqvarna Ajo) rounded out the fourth row in 12th.

Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46) had a difficult session and qualified down in 22nd. Early in the QP wild card Jasper Iwema (KRP Abbink Racing) went down and limped away. He qualified 28th whilst fellow wild card Joe Irving (Redline Motorcycles/KTM UK) was 32nd.
