The NGM Forward Racing rider Aleix Espargaro impressed once again on his Forward Yamaha clocking a 2’01.448 to secure the 4th place, just 0.619 from pole man Marc Marquez.

First open on the grid, Aleix will take the start of the British GP from the first spot of the second row alongside Dani Pedrosa and Valentino Rossi.

After a difficult start of the weekend, Espargaro was very satisfied with his lap time that gives him extra confidence for the race.

Aleix Espargaro
“I’m really happy with my best lap time. Silverstone is a tricky track and the cold temperatures make more complicated to find the right set up with the bike. In the practices we struggled with the front, but in the qualifying I made a very good lap that gives me extra confidence for tomorrow’s race. We are close to the provisional podium. Regarding the tyre choice, which is really crucial here, I think I will race with the soft compound, even if I usually prefer the hard option. It’s cold and I prefer a safer solution”.
