In June 20 ,2010 at Silverstone It was the 2nd times Valentino Rossi missed since his debut in 1996, due to a shin bone fracture at Mugello in practice for the previous Grand Prix. And last year Jorge Lorenzo take the 1st potition and 2nd for Andrea Dovizioso and the 3rd for Ben Spies with Yamaha tech 3 won the battle and passing Nicky Hayden on the last laps to get his first podium . And duo Ducati Nicky Hayden and Casey Stoner for 4th and 5th potition. The last year stat bike for top five is Yamaha , Honda, Yamaha, Ducati, Ducati
Ducati strong enough in the first time this circuit replaced Doninghton for the Britsh Grand Prix last year, Nicky Hayden almost grab 3th position and Stoner in 5th position after get a bad start.
But For Valentino Rossi this circuit is new for him after last year he absent because the injury. He already try this circuit last month with ride the Ducati 1198 Road bike complete with plate number, and its totally different with the bike he use for real race. But when he try this track he already say he like Silverstone Circuit, difficult with all type corners and have a long and fast straight. When he feel like that, he will doing the best and find some idea to make all happen in this circuit for first time be a beautiful memory for MotoGP history.
Colin Edwards after breaking his right collarbone in a practice crash at Catalunya and missed race on there, for Silverstone already confirmed and got permission from Medical Center to riding back at Silverstone. But the situation is different with Dani Pedrosa from Repsol Honda, after missed the Catalunya Grand Prix and lost point in Le Mans because the incident on there, now he decided to not riding in Silverstone. This recovery going very slow than they expect before and Dani must take all this thing with big heart and stay calm with all recovery because the full recovery most important.
Alvaro Bautisata with his Suzuki blue bike very optimistic to face the race of Silverstone, after great battle he did in Catalunya and the good result during all Practice Catalunya on any condition of track. Look like Varo already getting his 100% health after bad crashed on round 1 of MotoGP.
