    This marks his second career grand prix victory since the 2022 Argentine Grand Prix.

    This result marks Francesco Bagnaia leads the standings by 41 points now from Jorge Martin on Championship, with Marco Bezzecchi 47 adrift.

    Aleix Espargaro said, “I'm very happy to be back on top! Maybe at the beginning of the season the expectation was a bit too high on my side and the team. I made too many mistakes and lost too many points. I've had good speed, many Fridays and in many sessions I was very close to Pecco but it doesn't matter. You have to be fast on Sunday. For one reason or another I was not able to match my speed with the results. Obviously we don't have the points that I think we deserve, but I was fast here on Friday, yesterday, unfortunately it was a wet race but I was quite happy about my performance. But today I was super convinced and knew that it would be an opportunity for me. My plan was to overtake Pecco in turn three but in corner two when preparing the overtake I did a highside and I lost ground. Then I tried to recover the gap to him and in the last corner of last year's circuit [layout] I saw that Pecco had a lot less traction than me. I gained a lot of time there and I knew in the next one he would struggle more. I braked very, very late, went to the outside and I accelerated better than him.”
