In his 250th premier class start, Valentino Rossi took his second victory of the season, after benefitting from an accident for Marc Márquez, while he was leading the race. It was Rossi's sixth win at the circuit, after five successive wins from 2001 to 2005. Second place went to Rossi's teammate Jorge Lorenzo finished in second place, while Tech 3's Bradley Smith finished in third place, recording his first premier class podium, after Ducati's Cal Crutchlow crashed out late on. As a result, it was the first all-Yamaha podium since the 2008 French Grand Prix[4] and the first time since the 2011 Australian Grand Prix where all three riders on the podium were of the same manufacturer. For the first time since the 2009 Dutch TT, both Repsol Honda riders failed to finish the race; further to Márquez's accident, Dani Pedrosa collided with Andrea Iannone, causing both riders to retire from the race.[5] Karel Abraham, Stefan Bradl and Pol Espargaró also crashed out of the race, and only 14 of the 23 starters reached the finish.[6][7]

In the support categories, Maverick Viñales took his third win of the season in Moto2, ahead of Thomas Lüthi and championship leader Esteve Rabat.[8] In Moto3, Jack Miller took his fifth win of the season on home soil, in a photo finish; he finished just clear of Estrella Galicia 0,0 teammates Álex Márquez (the championship leader) and Álex Rins.[9] The top six riders were covered by just under a quarter of a second at the finish.[10]
