    Marco Bezzecchi took the third place as his first podium of this season.
    Beginning of the race, Francesco Bagnaia and Marc Marquez led and followed by Jorge Martin (Pramac Ducati).
    Jorge Martin led the field on lap 2 ahead of Marco Bagnaia and Marquez Marc Marquez, but crashed out at Turn 6 15 laps to go.
    Francesco Bagnaia led the race again after Jorge Martin crashed out and competed against Marc Marquez (Gresini Ducati) to win until the last lap.
    Finally, Francesco Bagnaia took his second victory of the season ahead of Marc Marquez by 0.372s, following Qatar GP.
    Marc Marquez's brother and team-mate Alex Marquez (Gresini Ducati) was 4th. followed by, Enea Bastianini (Ducati Lenovo) was 5th and Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM) was 6th, respectively.
    Rookie Pedro Acosta (Red Bull GASGAS Tech3), who finished runner-up in the Sprint Race, early contacted with Johann Zarco (LCR Honda) but rounded out the top 10.
  • Francesco Bagnaia said, “Yesterday I lost a lot; I tried to do the same overtake in corner six but the outside was a bit wet. So I just tried to do it again today when it was dry and it went perfectly. It was very important to not force too much under braking today. The feeling with the front was not the ideal one. Maybe because of the temperature, I don't know. But it was moving a lot. I'm very happy because the race was very long but we managed it perfectly without taking too much risk and also having some margin for the last few laps. I'm very happy about that. When I saw Martin crash I was braking very hard in corner six, but on that lap he was gaining a bit of time in the braking and lost the front. It is difficult to know why he crashed. Sometimes it can happen in that corner because the asphalt is a bit strange when you arrive with straight tyres in that moment. The fight with Marc was intense for sure. You know perfectly when you are fighting with Marc that you have to put your elbow out. It was a nice battle with Marc because when we touched, normally when you have this type of contact the one on the inside loses the direction and goes outside. He was smart to pick up a bit and was smart to leave me with angle because more-or-less it was what happened yetserday. Everything went perfectly but the second time he tried I just tried to push again and open the gap in the last laps.”
  • Marc Marquez said, “It was a super important race. In the beginning I was a little bit stiff - you know, I crashed in Austin, I crashed yesterday and in the beginning with the full tank and everything I was a bit stiff and lost positions. But the speed was there to come back, the speed was there to fight with Bagnaia. It was a tight fight, like old times - it was good racing! I tried to close the door, he was inside and that's what happens in racing. The last lap, he was super good, and I tried to follow him, but he had a bit more. But I'm super happy about this podium. It doesn't matter what happened in the past, I just want to fight until the end.”

    Marco Bezzecchi said, “I'm very happy because the beginning of this year and also the end of last year for me was tough. To bounce back here in Jerez where last year I also struggled a lot is very nice. I'm very happy, I'm very grateful to my team, they never stopped believing in me and always give me the right support.”
