#BritishGP: Moto3™ Sunday Guide

Stats on the lower class before the lights go out on race day

Francesco Bagnaia (PULL&BEAR Aspar Mahindra) starts from pole for the first time in his grand prix career, in his 63rd start.

This is the second pole for Mahindra in the Moto3™ class to add to the one achieved in the 125 class at the final race of the 2011 season at Valencia.

Enea Bastianini (Gresini Racing Moto3), who finished third at Silverstone two years ago, starts from the front row for the sixth time in 2016.

Third place on the grid is Niccolo Antonelli (Ongetta-Rivacold), who finished in third place last year at Silverstone. Antonelli has not finished on the podium since winning the opening race of the year in Qatar.

Championship leader Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Ajo) has qualified in fourth place on the grid and will be aiming to win for the first time since the Italian grand prix back in May. Binder has only managed to score one point from his four Moto3™ starts at Silverstone, which was 15th place in 2014.

Bo Bendsneyder (Red Bull KTM Ajo) has qualified third but has been demoted 5 positions and will start in 8th place on the grid. This is the best qualifying performance by any Dutch rider in any class of grand prix racing since Jurgen van den Goorbergh qualified in third place on the grid for the 500cc race at Estoril in 2000.
