Casey Stoner  will be bidding to record his second straight win at Silverstone when he contests the British Grand Prix on Sunday. The Australian world champion has a great record in England, boasting three wins in England during the past five years. Stoner, who is retiring at the end of the season, has won two of the five races that have been contested in 2012, but was a disappointing fourth in the Catalunya Grand Prix at the start of the month.

Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo  has won the three races that Stoner hasn’t this year and also tasted success at the Silverstone circuit when winning the corresponding race in 2010. German Stefan Bradl  won the Moto2 race at the track last year, while Dani Pedrosa , Andrea Dovizioso  and Valentino Rossi  are all previous winners of the British Grand Prix having been victorious when the race was contested at Donnington.
