1 of 1

British teenager Danny Webb claimed only the second front row start of his 125GP career today with a brilliant performance in Indianapolis.

The Aprilia rider will start tomorrow’s race from fourth after he surged to the front row in the dying seconds of final qualifying.

It is the first time he has qualified on the front row since he was fourth on the grid at the third round of the season in Estoril.

The 17-year-old said: “Today was the best day since Portugal. I felt good and went for it. It was the first time we were riding in the dry so I had to push to the limit. It worked it out for me and it put me on the front row.

"The whole weekend I have the fastest bike on top speed and I want to thank the team for that. I want to get a good start tomorrow and push for the podium.”
