Italy’s Francesco Bagnaia claimed back-to-back MotoGP wins with victory at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

The Ducati rider, who is third in the world championship, won the Dutch MotoGP in June, the last race before the five-week summer break.

Spaniard Maverick Vinales was second with Aprilia with Australian Jack Miller from Ducati third.

Leader Fabio Quartararo was eighth but pole-sitter Johann Zarco fell on the fifth lap in the lead.

“I think it’s the best win I’ve ever had,” said Bagnaia, who now has four wins this season.

Quartararo, who had to serve a long lap penalty during the race, still managed to increase his championship lead over Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro, who finished ninth, to 22 points after 12 of 20 laps.
