MotoGP returns with the British Grand Prix at the legendary Silverstone circuit, with every session live across an unmissable weekend on BT Sport.

World champion Fabio Quartararo didn’t finish after crashing twice at the iconic Dutch track, but the Frenchman still leads the 2022 standings at the halfway stage.

The 23-year-old leads Spaniard Aleix Espargaro, with Johann Zarco, Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini completing the top five.

Quartararo will look to come roaring back at Silverstone, a legendary track known the world over that has produced high-octane drama, thrills and spills aplenty.

As ever, we’ll be bringing you every minute of the action across the race weekend. Read on to find out all you need to know about how to watch the 2022 British MotoGP on BT Sport.

2022 British MotoGP: Preview

The MotoGP season kicks back into gear with the British Grand Prix at the iconic Silverstone Circuit.

Thousands of fans will flock to the legendary track for one of the highlights of the sporting calendar as MotoGP returns after a six-week summer break.

We’ve been treated to some stunning action and unbelievable drama at the British GP in recent years, with a different winner emerging in each of the last seven races.

There is a good chance of that streak continuing this weekend as championship leader and last year’s winner Fabio Quartararo serves a Long Lap penalty.

The Frenchman has been the standout rider in the 2022 season but will need to make up considerable ground at Silverstone after being reprimanded for crashing into Aleix Espargaro in Assen.

FIM stewards deemed his attempted Turn 5 overtake, which saw him crash out, as “overly ambitious” and slapped him with the first penalty of his career.

That said, Yamaha are the most successful manufacturer at the track and Quartararo, enjoying a rich vein of form after his maiden title last year, shouldn’t be discounted at a track he dominated last year.

“This time will be tricky but if I’m really honest, that only motivates me to do even better”
- Quartararo

“I am really looking forward to Silverstone,” he said. “I won there last year. This time will be tricky because we know that we have that long-lap penalty, but if I’m really honest, that only motivates me to do even better.”

He has left the door open for his title rivals to close the gap at the top of the standings though, with Aprilia’s Espargaro 21 points behind in second with nine races remaining.

A heroic recovery at Assen saw the Spaniard close in on his rival and the 33-year-old has another opportunity to make up ground at the mecca of British motorsport. Teammate Maverick Vinales will also be looking to build on an unexpected podium finish at The Cathedral.

Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia has three wins and three podiums this season and remains in the championship hunt as he searches for consistency in the second half of the season.

Bagnaia bounced back with a win at Assen after crashing out in Germany the week before and could claw back some points in the championship at Silverstone.

Fellow Ducati riders Jack Miller and Marco Bezzecchi could also contend. The latter has established himself as one to watch after a second-place finish last time out.

Prima Pramac Racing’s Johann Zarco and Gresini Racing’s Enea Bastianini are both in the top five of the riders’ world championship, but they need to podium to reignite an unlikely title charge.

In Moto2, only one point separates Celestino Vietti Ramus, Augusto Fernandez and Ai Ogura and a sensational second half of the season is surely in store.

Spaniard Sergio Garcia leads the Moto3 standings, with it looking like a two-horse race between him and compatriot Izan Guevara for the championship.

Strap yourselves in for one of the fastest races of the year at the legendary Silverstone Circuit that never fails to deliver. Are you ready for more?
