British GP: 5 different winners in 5 years

Silverstone has served up some classics and since 2013, Lorenzo, Marquez, Rossi, Viñales and Dovizioso have taken victory

Since its return to the MotoGP™ calendar in 2010, Silverstone has hosted some classic races and in the last five years, we’ve witnessed five different winners triumph at the Northamptonshire layout.

The unpredictability in MotoGP™ is one of the many reasons why so many love the sport, so what has happened in the last five years at the iconic Silverstone circuit?

2013: Jorge Lorenzo, who holds the record for the most number of wins at Silverstone with three (2010, 2012 and 2013), beat Marc Marquez in an epic duel between the two Spaniards, with compatriot Dani Pedrosa making it an all-Spanish rostrum.
