In the MotoGP class, Dani Pedrosa took the victory after overtaking Johann Zarco on the final lap, while Marc Márquez clinched his fourth premier class title and sixth overall with a third place finish after rival Andrea Dovizioso crashed out. The victory would prove to be Pedrosa's last in MotoGP, as well as his final podium finish.

In the Moto3 class, this was the final race for both the Peugeot and Mahindra MGP3O chassis packages, as the teams that used those bikes, CIP, Ángel Nieto Team, and Redox PrüstelGP all switched to KTM for 2018.
