Jack Miller wins the French Grand Prix at Les Mans, followed by Zarco's Ducati Pramac and Quartararo on Yamaha.

Jack Miller puts on the second first place in a row, with a splendid race that saw him in the lead almost all the time, everything happened in front and behind him. A grand prix punctuated by falls due to rain, one of those not exactly spectacular but where everything happens.

The Australian driver in fact dominated a very difficult race, which saw the riders also tackle the gearbox motorcycle required by the flag-to-flag regulation. The riders started on dry track conditions, but the sky soon clouded over and after a few laps it began to rain heavily. On the fifth round Miller, who was in fourth position after a straight, returned to the pits to make the bike change, then managed to return to third place. The pilot of the DucatiLenovoTeam however, he also had to serve a double “long lap” as a penalty for exceeding 60 km / h in the pit lane. However, Jack remained in third place and then in the twelfth lap, after the crash of Márquez, overtook Quartararo, and remained in command until the checkered flag, securing his second consecutive success this season. Behind him closed the home rider Johann Zarco, according to the Ducati Desmosedici GP of Pramac Racing Team.

The rain then fell like a scythe on many pilots who do not feel at home with the water: Márquez, very fierce, after a first fall and after taking the lead during the bike change, he fell again and went out; Kidneys e Mir, falling too, they left there Suzuki dry points; Morbidely he could not hold up, perhaps also thanks to the injury due to a bike change test, and went out of the race.
