Marc Marquez’s lap record at Silverstone (1’58”168) shook as the drivers completed a quality end of 3 free practice sessions this Saturday morning. Under the English sun, Aleix Espargaro was the fastest with a lap in 1’58”254. The Aprilia rider was ahead of Jorge Martin (Pramac, +0”028) and Jack Miller (Ducati, +0”078).
The two Frenchmen quietly obtained their place for the second qualifying round, scheduled for 3:35 p.m. Johann Zarco finished 4th (+0”090) and he could have hoped for better since he had the best intermediate time before crashing in his last attempt at a fast lap.
Fabio Quartararo presents the 6th record (+0”328), after finishing first in practice 2 on Friday. In Q2, he will be well accompanied by Francesco Bagnaia (Ducati), who joined the top 10 after being ejected the day before.
