Jorge Lorenzo dominated the MotoGP race, finishing nearly seven seconds clear of a battle for second place. Andrea Dovizioso won the battle for second, with Ben Spies passing countryman Nicky Hayden for third on the last lap to get his first ever MotoGP podium, and Casey Stoner recovered from a terrible start which left him last at the first corner to finish fifth ahead of front row starter Randy de Puniet.
