MotoGP classificationEdit

After a four-round absence due to a broken leg sustained at the Mugello Circuit, Valentino Rossi made his return to the MotoGP grid. A crash between Randy de Puniet, Álvaro Bautista and Aleix Espargaró caused the race to be red-flagged on the 10th lap. All three riders were eligible to make the restart as the results of the first race go back to the last lap therefore showing the riders being classified. However they failed to return to the pits with their bike within five minutes of the race being stopped and therefore were not allowed to make the restart. Colin Edwards retired from the first race before the race was stopped and was ineligible to restart the race. The restarted race was shortened to 21 laps, and grid positions for the second race was based on the classification of the first race.
