Danilo Petrucci is third in the title race, 36 points behind Dovizioso, with Alex Rins and Valentino Rossi making up the rest of the top five.

Previous British MotoGP Results
Last year’s British MotoGP was a wash out as the rain hit the English track and made it too dangerous to race.
Andrea Dovizioso won the race in 2017, which was his best result at Silverstone and his first podium finish at the track since he finished third in 2015. Britain is a happy hunting ground for the Italian, who finished runner-up at Silverstone in 2010 and 2011 and who also won the British Grand Prix in 2009 when it was held at Donnington Park. Dovizioso comes into this race in great form, having won in Austria last time out, and he is sure to be a threat again.
Marc Marquez has enjoyed two good results at Silverstone, finishing second in 2013 before winning in 2014. He hasn’t made the podium since that victory and failed to finish the race in 2017, when it was last contested.
Maverick Vinales, the runner-up at Silverstone in 2017, also recorded an excellent win at the track in 2016. Although he is sitting down in sixth place in the World Standings, he can certainly pose a threat. Valentino Rossi, currently fifth in the title race, was the winner of the British MotoGP in 2015. He also finished third in 2014, 2016 and 2017 so another podium finish is not out of the question.
Top Betting Tips for MotoGP Austria 2019
Marc Marquez has been installed as the odds-on favourite again at 3/4, but his record at Silverstone makes that price far too short to be of interest.
Andrea Dovizioso, who has a much better record in the British MotoGP, is a more appealing price at 4/1, especially after his recent form and the challenges he has been throwing down to Marquez of late.
Maverick Vinales is third-favourite at 13/2 – and although he has enjoyed some very good Silverstone performances in recent years, his form this season is not that great; it’s a shame he’s not a slightly bigger price.
Better value is offered by riders in good form and who currently sit in the top-five of the title race. Danilo Petrucci is 14/1, Alex Rins 18/1 and Valentino Rossi 16/1 – all offer excellent each-way odds for a podium finish.
