ReportEdit

Dani Pedrosa took his second consecutive MotoGP pole position ahead of Cal Crutchlow and Jorge Lorenzo. Pedrosa set a new circuit record for MotoGP with a 1:40.893, which beat his former teammate Casey Stoner's record of 1:41.186 set in 2008. Lorenzo went on to win the race, ahead of pole sitter Pedrosa, and Marc Márquez. Valentino Rossi finished in fourth place, after the collision with Álvaro Bautista in Italy.

Turn 10, a right hander after the back straight, had caught out many riders due to the hot temperatures on race day and caused many retirements during the first few laps of the race.

In Moto2, Pol Espargaró took pole position, and went on to win the race, ahead of Esteve Rabat and Switzerland's Thomas Lüthi, who took his first podium of the season.

In Moto3, Luis Salom took his second successive victory from pole position, ahead of Álex Rins and Maverick Viñales.
