Interesting grid for British GP
He is pretty much where they have been all year. He typically starts from 3rd row, but I think he already had 2 2nd rows this year.

Now I think most, if not all, bikes have the ability to lower the rear end while riding which they then use on the exit of corners. Most obvious to see that was in Styrian and Austrian GPs when exiting the final corner as camera was placed perfectly sideways. You could see them squatting down just before riders would open up the throttle.
Also, today in Misano

According to anyone that’s used them, they’re a big benefit during any ‘wheelie phase’, which is any time you’re accelerating hard in a low gear. That’s why you’ll often see the rear of a MotoGP bike squat very deliberately on corner exit. The rider simply presses a button and a mechanical or hydraulic system allows the rear to squat, lowing the centre of gravity. Any additional mechanical grip is also extremely welcome in racing. This means less electronic intervention and, ultimately, a faster lap time. That’s lovely.
