From the very beginning, Dovizioso took the lead and did not yield to him throughout the race. He finished with the best result 42: 36,902. Marc Marquez hid behind Danilo Petrucci in front of the checkered flags in order to catch up with the leading racers without risk. He overclocked to slip-stream, but was not able to bypass Andrea. With the first place he was divided only one thousandth of a second. The top three was Cal Calchlow.

Valentino Rossi started the 14th, but in the final grid broke into fifth place. Maverick Vinales, who dominated all the pre-season tests, was only the seventh.

In a conversation with journalists, Dovitsioso admitted: “I am very happy to win, because there was such a strong wind! You know, we didn’t work a lot on the tests. I didn’t have a very good impression about the bike. But continuing the work turned out that we are doing everything correctly. We have improved and we have speed. ”[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]
