MotoGP Grand Prix of Great Britain | Schedule and where to see the classification on TV

After more than a month of hiatus, usual in summer, the Motorcycling World Championship restarts its engines this Saturday, August 6, with the qualifying dispute for the MotoGP British Grand Prix. The fight for the title resumes between the current leader, the Frenchman Fabio Quartararo, and the Catalan Aleix Espargaró.

The fight for pole position on the English circuit will begin at 3:10 p.m. with Q1 followed by Q2 at 3:35 p.m. and can be seen in streaming on the DAZN platform, in addition to being able to follow minute by minute through the La Vanguardia website.

The premier class stopped on June 26 after the exciting race at the Assen circuit, where Quartararo went down and Espargaró, who also went to the gravel although without losing his verticality, took advantage of his rival's misfortune to cut points with a spectacular comeback, from 15th position to fourth place.

The triumph in the 'cathedral of motorcycling' went to the Italian Pecco Bagnaia, but the protagonist was undoubtedly the rider from Granollers, who in the last corner, at the chicane from the entrance to the finish line, overtook Brad Binder and Jack Miller in a single maneuver. "Today was a good match point, I didn't win, but I cut 13 points off it," Espargaró said after the race.

With his excellent race on Dutch soil, the Aprilia rider approached Quartararo in the fight for the World title, now with the Frenchman 21 points ahead of the Spaniard at the top of the standings with nine races remaining for the end of the season . Third overall, Johann Zarco, is 37 points behind Espargaró.

In the race held last year at the Silverstone track, Quartararo won with solvency, leading Álex Rins by almost three seconds and Aleix Espargaró by more than four. Pole position in 2021 went to the Catalan's little brother, Pol Espargaró, who was 22 hundredths faster than Bagnaia's Ducati.
