Moto GP 2016 Round 12 Silverstone ***SPOILER***

Well 7 races to go, Marc holding on to that big lead, can he increase it even more with a win here, or will Cal be calling his wife again :) Smith out Lowes in, that should be interesting to see, hope he does well. Lorenzo will be looking for the 25 pts no doubt, and Rossi hopes to do the same he won last year here

About the circuit
With more than 60 years of history Silverstone has become one of the most prestigious venues dedicated to motorsport. Completely revamped in recent years, a multimillion pound investment saw the completion in 2010 of a first phase of works to greatly improve the venue, making it one of the fastest tracks on the MotoGP calendar and earning high praise from the World Championship riders who enjoyed the new layout. The ‘Silverstone Wing’, a state-of-the-art, multi-million pound complex, became a new landmark at the circuit from 2011, thus adding to already breathtaking facilities at Silverstone.

Smith out for Silverstone and Misano - Lowes to step in
Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider to sit out the upcoming back-to-back GPs, with WorldSBK rider set for replacement duty
Tags MotoGP, 2016, OCTO BRITISH GRAND PRIX, Bradley Smith, Monster Yamaha Tech 3
Bradley Smith (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) has been confirmed as having to miss his home race at Silverstone and the following Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini after a crash in a free practice for the Oschersleben 8H endurance race left the British rider with an injured thigh. Initially fearing a break, it was later confirmed that there was no fracture, but Smith underwent surgery on the laceration sustained and has now confirmed his absence from the Octo British Grand Prix at Silverstone, and the back-to-back visit to Misano.

PATA Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team rider Alex Lowes recently tested the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 machine at the one day official test following the Czech GP, with the Brit given the opportunity as a reward for his win for Yamaha in the prestigious Suzuka 8H - alongside Tech 3's Pol Espargaro. Lowes will now be the replacement for Smith at the back-to-back British and San Marino GPs, joining his brother Sam Lowes (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) in the MotoGP™ paddock.

Marquez is dialed in this year. I'd be amazed if gets overtaken for the championship. He's learned enough to avoid too many chances, though he'll still take a few.

Domi Aegerter is out of the race due to injury (torn shoulder ligaments and broken ribs).

Jorge Navarro well move up to Gresini's Moto2 team:

Moto3™ frontrunner Jorge Navarro (Estrella Galicia 0,0) is set to make the move up to Moto2™ next season, with the Spaniard having signed a deal with Federal Oil Gresini Moto2. The team are title contenders in the intermediate category of the world championship with Sam Lowes in 2016, and have called on the services of Moto3™ title contender Navarro to take the seat as Lowes graduates to MotoGP™ to ride the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini bike.

Navarro's career has seen him move from title contention in the FIM CEV Repsol through to his first taste of the world championship with the Marc VDS team in the latter half of 2014, before the Valencian signed on full-time with Estrella Galicia 0,0 for 2015. Having scored pole positions and podiums, as well as a first win in the Catalan GP earlier in 2016, Navarro is ready for another challenge as he sets his sights on Moto2™.

Jorge Navarro:*“I’m very happy and excited to have the opportunity to step up to the intermediate class of the World Championship with the Team Federal Oil Gresini Moto2. It’s an exciting challenge that I face with great enthusiasm. I would like to thank Federal Oil and Fausto Gresini for the trust they put in me, and for giving value to the work I’m currently doing in Moto3. I’m convinced that starting from next year we will do great things together!”

Fausto Gresini, Team Principal:*“It’s a great pleasure and pride to be able to continue the important project in the Moto2 World Championship together with Federal Oil, a valuable partner since 2012. Our efforts in recent years led us to become top players in an extremely fought category, as evidenced by the results we are getting with Sam Lowes, currently fighting for the World Title. In 2017 we are determined to remain at the top and consequently, with Lowes who will step up to MotoGP, the choice fell on Jorge Navarro, undoubtedly one of the most interesting young talents of Moto3, with whom we signed a 2-year contract. Navarro proved to learn quickly, becoming a ‘big’ of the smaller displacement: we are convinced that he can fast adapt also to Moto2, a Championship where the level is currently very high. It will be an exciting challenge and we look forward to start working with Jorge, aware that we can offer to him a top team and a strong technical package, thanks to the support of Federal Oil. For this reason we are already organizing some important testing sessions to prepare his debut in the best possible way”.

Congrats to Cal getting Pole on his home track :) Lav was in a pos to take it but sadly crashed out, Marc falls and is fine but lost P3 to Maverick. Terrible conditions

Cal Crutchlow takes a dominant home pole position in the wet at Silverstone, ahead of Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales.

Marc Marquez, Andrea Dovizioso and Eugene Laverty were among the pole contenders to fall during the session - Laverty while under Crutchlow's pole time on his final lap.

Alex Lowes is making his MotoGP race debut, in place of the injured Bradley Smith at Tech 3 Yamaha. Smith suffered knee ligament injuries at last weekend's Oschersleben round of the World Endurance Championship and has also been ruled out of Misano.

Jesus, massive crash at the start at turn 2. PE off on a stretcher, Loris Baz still down. Red flag. They both went down and slid back onto track, but neither was hit. It looked bad anyway, but it could have been so much worse.

Quick restart procedure, race reduced to 19 laps. Baz taken off in the ambulance, but he was conscious and waving as he was loaded into the bus. Pol will not be restarting the race as he didn't return to his box.

Fantastic race! Maverick was head of the class once he got to the front to take Suzuki's first win in 9 years. Fantastic battles for the remaining podium spots, resulting in Marquez over-cooking it and going off-track to lose a few positions. (Good thing he ended up being Pedrosa so DP26 could yield and give him another spot or MM93 would have lost a little more to Rossi in the championship.) Domination by Vinales, a Lorenzo-like performance. Crutchlow backs up his win with a 2nd, Rossi completes the podium and makes a slight gain (3 points) on Marquez in the championship. Lorenzo finishes 8th, and the surprise of the entire weekend, Bradley Smith's replacement Alex Lowes, gains points in his first appearance, placing 13th.

Dorna's dreams have come true, parity is coming to the premier class. Seven different winners this season, two independent wins, 4 different manufacturer wins, 4 first time winners, and long droughts for Ducati and Suzuki have ended. Granted, weather has played a huge role in those results, and even with all those different winners, Marquez is almost running away with the championship, but the racing has been pretty memorable this season.

Awesome battle, good comments from Vale and Cal on Marc


MotoGP: Crutchlow: 'Marc hit me at 200mph, Vale's fork hit my head!' 5 September 2016
"I told Vale; I felt his fork or his wheel hit my head in Turn 13" - Cal Crutchlow.
Sunday's British MotoGP was highlighted by some fierce battles among the pack fighting for second place, behind out-of-reach race leader Maverick Vinales.

Home star Cal Crutchlow was in the thick of that action, repeatedly swapping the runner-up spot with world championship leader Marc Marquez in the closing stages - until Marquez clipped the LCR Honda rider at the end of the Hangar Straight on the penultimate lap.

While Crutchlow kept control, Marquez ran wide and rejoined the track in fifth, later gaining one place by the chequered flag.

"Yeah, there was contact. He hit me at 200mph!" Crutchlow said. "Marc didn't mean to do it; I shut off and he was still accelerating. The speed that he hit me in the leg... The wing hit me. It dead-legged me. And then it pushed me wide and I thought, 'I have to make this corner' because that was the move for second.

"I think it was a fair fight between us. At the end of the day I'm never one to complain about people's maneuverers. I've done them before and I'll do them again.

"We actually hit each other in the straight as well, where I got the run on him and he was wheelieing - typical Honda - and we couldn't keep a straight line so we were veering towards each other!

"I think it was a fair fight from everyone today though, from what I saw."

That 'fair fight' verdict included a previous incident with Valentino Rossi, where Crutchlow tried to hold on around the outside.

"I told Vale - and this is no joke - I felt his fork leg or his wheel hit my head in Turn 13," said the Englishman. "But I wasn't willing to give it up. He was already alongside me and I thought 'if I give it up it's going to screw me for the next left, and then someone else will go past as well'.

"So I thought I'd just stay there and try and get him back on the next left. But in the end I felt my head on something and I thought, 'I need to pick the bike up a little bit here!'

"But the funniest thing of the race was when I had a moment out of Turn 16. I nearly highsided and I was watching myself on the big screen at the exact time I was twisting the throttle. I thought, 'f**k that doesn't look right'!"

Three podiums in four races means Crutchlow has moved up to eighth in the world championship standings.



MotoGP Great Britain: Rossi: Marquez battle strong but fair 5 September 2016
'Marquez is always very aggressive for sure, but compared to the Sepang battle this one was a lot different because both riders have the same target – try to arrive in front' - Valentino Rossi.
Valentino Rossi says he had no issue with title rival Marc Marquez's aggression as the pair battled it out for a place on the rostrum during the British MotoGP round at Silverstone.

After trading blows in the final part of the race, Marquez finally made a slight break from Rossi to slot into third place and began to challenge Cal Crutchlow for the runner-up spot.

The Repsol Honda rider was equally aggressive as he went head to head with Crutchlow, clipping the British star at the end of the Hangar Straight before running off the track and losing ground, eventually finishing fourth as Rossi secured the final place on the podium.

The battle between Rossi and Marquez rekindled memories of their infamous clash at Sepang last season, which ended with Marquez sliding out after the pair touched. However, nine-time world champion Rossi said their Silverstone tussle had been a 'fair' confrontation.

Asked if he was more worried when he had Andrea Iannone or Marquez for company during a race, Ross said: “More when I have Marquez, because I know that he has special treatment with me! But also with Iannone, it is not easy. Apart from the joke, it was a great battle with Iannone and also with Marquez – it is always a strong battle, but fair.”

Marquez ran off the track as he locked horns with Rossi but failed to gain an advantage, re-joining the race in a similar position behind the Yamaha rider. Rossi, though, feels it is unfair that any rider running off the track escapes unpunished.

“When you go out of the track it means that you make a mistake and at the end it is not fair that you don't lose nothing. But the rule is like this and if you go out of the track at a place that have the tarmac and you don't gain any advantage, you can continue. It is also like this for all the other riders,” he said.

“But Marquez is always very aggressive for sure, but compared to the Sepang battle this one was a lot different because both riders have the same target – try to arrive in front and try to go faster. This was the difference and I enjoy a lot.”

The Italian rider has reduced Marquez's advantage by three points and is now 50 points behind at the top of the table, but the 37-year-old was more satisfied with his performance in the race after a challenging weekend at Silverstone.

“I'm very happy, not for the three points because it's still 50 points, but to arrive on the podium after a race like this and a battle like this was very fun, very exciting, because we already know that on the dry we suffer a bit. It was a difficult weekend and I know that I have to use the advantage to start in the front row and to fight from the first corner to the last.

“It was a great race, a great fight with [Cal] Crutchlow, with Marquez especially and with Iannone. When I was fifth with Marquez in front and Iannone in front, I say, 'difficult' – also because I had [Dani] Pedrosa behind. I tried to not give up, to ride at the limit; I was also lucky at the end but this is an important podium for me and for the team because I arrive on the podium after a difficult weekend.

“The only shame is that Maverick [Vinales] doesn't wait for us because we need to have this fight for the victory! But it was very fun.”

Rossi - who celebrated his 250th MotoGP start at Silverstone - is now looking forward to a 'special' race weekend at Misano, where the Yamaha has traditionally been strong in the past.

“It's a good way to arrive because next week in Misano will be the most special and important weekend of the season because it is in my home an for sure we will have a lot of pressure, but also we will have a great atmosphere, a lot of people and a lot of fun around,” said Rossi, who raced with the old chassis and swingarm instead of the upgrades he tested at Brno, with Yamaha deciding the time lost in practice to evaluate the parts left too much to chance in a race situation.

“I like the track and usually our bike is good but you never know until you go on the track with the different tyres but we need to give the maximum and also a little bit more.”

Marcs comments:


MotoGP World Championship leader Marc Marquez conceded that he 'maybe attacked too much' as the Repsol Honda rider fought for second place in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Marquez was involved in a fierce battle with Valentino Rossi as the pair swapped places before the Spaniard made a break, chasing after Cal Crutchlow in second place.

He reeled in the LCR Honda rider and again become embroiled in a battle with the home favourite before clipping Crutchlow's knee at the end of the Hangar Straight and running off the track, losing time and eventually having to fight back and pass team-mate Dani Pedrosa to snatch fourth place.

“Maybe in the beginning of the race I was able to be even faster, but the biggest problem for me was after only four laps, I started to feel that soft tyre in the front was a mistake. It was moving too much, it was slow to turn the bike, and I was with the elbows all the time trying to manage the front. This was the first mistake,” Marquez said.

“Then I tried to manage the race behind Valentino, because I know that he is the main opponent for the championship, and then when five laps remained, I started to attack. Maybe I attack too much, take too much risk, but I believe that I was able to finish second. For that reason I push, but when two laps remain, I did the mistake with Cal, and then I lost many positions. But we need to see the positive things, that we lose only three points.”

Marquez denied last season's infamous clash with Rossi at Sepang entered his mind as he traded blows with his old foe and said he preferred instead to think about the future.

“No. In the end, I don't want to think about the past, I want to think about the future, because this championship, we are working really hard, and I don't want to spend one second to think about the past. Just thinking about the present and the future and try to work for the next race.”

The 23-year-old said instability with the rear of the Honda also proved an issue during the in addition to set-up woe and front tyre problems.

“This is one thing that we struggle a lot with in this circuit, for example. We lose the FP1 a little bit with one change, we made a mistake there. Then we lost the FP4 with the rain, and we couldn't find the best set up. For that reason it was really unstable,” he said.

“But you know, we are struggling this race, but even though we were struggling with the set-up, with the front tyre and everything, we were able to fight with Valentino and for the podium.”

Marquez, who opted for the soft front tyre in contrast to the top three of Maverick Vinales, Crutchlow and Rossi, said the decision to run with the softer compound was entirely his.

“No, always the last decision is mine. In Brno, OK, on dry conditions is more a question mark. It's like a gamble. But here, the team said to me, maybe the K (hard front) can be the option, but I didn't try it.

“And I was a little bit scared of having some locking on the braking, and the temperature on the ground was honestly 21°, yesterday in the morning was 20°, and I felt OK. But in the end in the race, with other riders, with the drifting, it didn't work well. But experience for the future.”

Misano is next up on the calendar with only a few days' respite before free practice commences on Friday and Marquez is optimistic it will prove a more favourable circuit for the Honda.

“The bike was working not so bad here, it was working well because all the acceleration points are in a different way. All the corners we start with third gear, more or less, and is in a different way. In Misano is different, but that circuit for example, I like it. For my riding style is a little bit better than this one,” he said.

“We will see how it is in Misano, but the important thing is that step by step, Honda is getting better and better, and in this circuit with my set up on the bike, I was struggling a little bit more, but we were able to be there.”

Asked for his expectations for the race next Sunday, he added: “Difficult to say, but I expect to fight with Yamaha. Why not? In the end, we must go there with this mentality, we cannot go there and think, maybe we will struggle. We need to be convinced. And I think that if we work well during the weekend, maybe we can fight for the podium.”

Maverick Viñales did a great job. MM was right, he got wreckless. Looked like last year all over again.
