Ahead of the race, Yamaha announced that it has dropped Maverick Vinales for the remainder of the season for deliberately trying to damage the engine on his M1 during the Styrian Grand Prix.

Cal Crutchlow has been announced as his replacement for the British GP, but it's clear if he would see out the rest of the season or not.
