Lorenzo tops practice at Silverstone  Reigning MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo was fastest in practice as the Hertz British Grand Prix weekend began at the Silverstone Circuit on Friday.

The Yamaha Factory Racing rider and last year’s winner led championship leader Marc Marquez and his Repsol Honda Team partner Dani Pedrosa.

Very light rain had affected Moto3 practice during the morning, but blue skies were prominent over Northamptonshire by the time the afternoon arrived, accompanied by a steady breeze.

Lorenzo led the way with his best effort of 2:02.734, two tenths up on Marquez whose last Silverstone victory came in the 125 class three years ago.

Behind Pedrosa, the top five was rounded out by GO&FUN Honda Gresini’s Alvaro Bautista – the 2012 pole-sitter – and Lorenzo’s teammate Valentino Rossi.

Marquez paced the morning session at 2:03.816, followed by Lorenzo and Cal Crutchlow.
