2022 MotoGP British Grand Prix: Full UK television coverage details

The championship has been on hiatus since last June's Dutch Grand Prix at Assen, with the summer break extended by two weeks due to the cancellation of the Finnish Grand Prix that was due to take place on 10 July.

Reigning world champion Fabio Quartararo comes into the British GP leading the standings by 21 points, after he crashed out of the Dutch GP and Aprilia's Aleix Espargaro recovered to fourth having been dropped to last in the collision with the Yamaha rider.

Quartararo - last year's British GP winner - has been handed a long lap penalty for the incident, something he raged against back in June. 

Ducati's Francesco Bagnaia won the race at Assen, but comes to Silverstone mired in controversy after he was involved in a drink/driving accident while on holiday in Ibiza last month.

During the summer break, Honda announced it has signed Suzuki's Alex Rins to a two-year deal to join the LCR squad from 2023 replacing Gresini-bound Alex Marquez.
