The MotoGP race was originally scheduled to run over 27 laps, but was shortened to 19 laps after Bridgestone announced that the safety of its tyres on the newly resurfaced track could not be guaranteed after 10 laps. Riders were required to make a pitstop to swap bikes or change tyres at least once during the race, and no rider was permitted to use the same set of tyres for more than 10 laps.[4] Marc Márquez and Bryan Staring were both disqualified for riding an 11-lap stint without pitting. Jorge Lorenzo won the race and closed up the gap to Márquez in the championship to 18 points.[5] The Moto2 race distance was also shortened, from 25 to 13 laps.[6]

Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi on the podium after finishing second, first and third in the MotoGP race.
