Quartararo crucifies lap record to take control on Friday

Thanks to a track limit photo review after FP2 had ended, Fabio Quartararo’s (Petronas Yamaha SRT) 1:59.225 was allowed to stand to give the rookie phenomenon the advantage on Friday at the GoPro British Grand Prix – and a brilliant new lap record.
Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) sits as Quartararo’s closest challenger, 0.251 splits the duo, with Maverick Viñales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) completing the top three.
In the meantime, this relegated Rossi from second to 17th, Quartararo dropped to fourth thanks to his FP1 time.
This saw Quartararo crowned as Friday’s fastest man and the new lap record holder at Silverstone.
