    Maverick Vinales was 5th and Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM) was 6th ahead of Fabio Di Giannantonio (VR46 Ducati).
    Alex Marquez and Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia Racing) completed the top 9 and got points, respectively.
    Enea Bastianini crashed out at Turn 1 after contact with Jorge Martin.
    The incident between the two Ducati riders was investigated, but both were cleared of any wrongdoing.

  • Jorge Martin said, “It was a difficult day overall from the morning. I could do this fast lap [for pole] but we are far away from the top pace. In the Sprint I had the podium under control but I just missed a lot of front grip, after three laps I felt like the tyre is really, really used. It's a really strange feeling, but it is what it is. We need to understand why [and] make for sure a big change on the front because if not tomorrow will be difficult. In the crash, I braked a bit earlier than the lap before. I was even slower trying to be calm on that corner because the lap before I went wide. And even then I crashed, so for sure something is not right and we need to solve it for tomorrow.”

    Francesco Bagnaia said, “I'm very happy, we were close in the last one in Barcelona… we managed everything in a perfect way, The start - I started to push - I just trued to move a bit s the rear tyre drop was huge. I was not expecting to have this sort of drop from the front of the tyre, the last two laps were quite difficult to manage, to remain in a constant pace, but very happy. I saw that it was the same for everybody, it was the same situation. Tomorrow with double the laps will be tough, but happy for today. It was super scary, when I arrive at corner ten, that is the one... and also on corner twelve, luckily I managed to finish it. It really depends on the start and from the pace - it will be another story, but we are here to fight and we try to fight.”
