2021 British MotoGP session timings

MotoGP will run its standard schedule across the British GP on Friday and Saturday, with two practice sessions on Friday that will run for 45 minutes each. On Saturday third practice will also run for 45 minutes, with the top 10 on the combined FP1-2-3 timesheet automatically entering into Q2 of qualifying. A final 30-minute FP4 session is held on Saturday afternoon ahead of qualifying.

Q1 of qualifying sees all riders who did not finish in the top 10 of the combined practice times take part, with the top two finishers progressing into Q2 alongside the top 10 who gained an automatic spot via their practice times.

Q2 is the pole position shootout which decides the order of the front four rows, with the rest of the grid organized on Q1 times, for the British GP on Sunday.

Due to clashes with the Formula 1 Belgian GP at Spa-Francorchamps, the MotoGP race will take place before Moto2 on Sunday. Moto2 and Moto3 are also in action during the British GP.
