El Diablo, given from the beginning as favorite, was ousted by the Portuguese driver who put his motorcycle in the head so as not to retreat almost never. His choice of hard tires both front and rear was perfect. The Frenchman paid not only for the choice of tires, which lost their bite towards the end, but above all for the broken zipper of the suit.
Having finished third at the finish line, the regulations penalized him for 3 seconds, taking him to 6th place and leaving his own to Jack Miller who saved the honor of the factory Ducati. Between the Australian and Oliveira we find Johann Zarco, who at the end had returned to put pressure on KTM.
Behind them follow Mir, Vinales and Bagnaia. Instead, Marquez and Rossi fall at turn 10, together with Aleix Espargarò and Petrucci, all at different times.
