Moto3Edit

The race, originally scheduled for 18 laps, was red-flagged on lap 15 after Maria Herrera crashed into the back of Livio Loi in Turn 15. Since two thirds of the original distance required to award full points was completed, the race was not restarted. Maria Herrera was not classified in the final results since she failed to recover her bike into pit-lane within five minutes of the race being red-flagged (as required by the rules).
