Teammates Maverick Viñales and Valentino Rossi fought for the victory throughout, with the Italian crashing out for the final lap, and Viñales taking his third win for Yamaha in five races. Johann Zarco scored his first podium finish and became the first French rider in the MotoGP class to stand on the podium since Randy de Puniet in the 2009 British Grand Prix.
