Bagnaia shines at Silverstone


The Italian rider takes the win in a thrilling finish with Spain’s Maverick Viñales

The show was again served in the queen category with a great final between Pecco Bagnaia and Maverick Viñales for the win. The victory went to the Italian, who won for the first time in Great Britain and climbed to the top of the podium for the fourth time this year.

The Spanish Aprilia rider got Bagnaia into serious trouble, but had to settle for a creditable second place after sometimes even taking the lead. The podium was completed by Australian Jack Miller, who defeated Bastianini.

Johann Zarco failed to complete the weekend. The Frenchman who had taken pole the previous day failed to cross the finish line after crashing on lap five when he was in the lead. The Prima Pramac Racing driver returned to the track, but later dropped out of the test.

World Cup leader Fabio Quartararo, who finished eighth, also didn’t have his best day. Despite this, the Frenchman remains at the top of the general classification for another week and extends his lead over Aleix Espargaró, who finished just behind, by one point.
