Behind him, the Spaniard Joan Mir (Suzuki) signed the first podium of his career by overtaking Jack Miller (Pramac Ducati) in the penultimate corner of the race.
On the other hand, the day was complicated for the French camp. Absent from the second start (for 20 laps) following his crash, Zarco (Reale Avintia Racing) left Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT) to start again from last place on the grid after his failed start to the race. The Frenchman seized this second chance to finally limit the damage by placing eighth, taking advantage in particular of the crashes of Alex Rins (Suzuki), Pol Espargaro (KTM Red Bull Racing Factory) and Cal Crutchlow (Honda LCR).
The Frenchman keeps the lead of the World Championship since his runner-up before the race Maverick Viñales missed his race. Starting sixth in the second start, the Spaniard was out of the game on the first corner to start again in last position before climbing back to tenth place, still dropping valuable points in the standings.
