This time Marquez could not fight for the victory but only to follow Vinales at a safe distance, despite an almost perfect start. However, he was able to console with the absolute record of points in a season (395) and above all with the world title won by his brother Alex in Moto2. «I made an incredible first lap, but then I destroyed the tires. However you cannot understand how happy he is today for Alex – he commented – He has shown that he is not only the "brother of", but a champion ".
On the third step of the podium went Andrea Dovizioso, who had to contend up to the finish line with Valentino Rossi. The Ducati made the difference in a straight line, but the Doctor tried to undermine the Forlì until the end. "This is always a strange race, but I was optimistic before the start. I expected to be a little faster but this remains an important podium, "said Dovi satisfied.
Valentino in turn got the better of Alex Rins with Suzuki. The Yamaha of the Petronas team, who had shone in all the practice sessions, disappointed instead. Instead Fabio Quartararo, the only one with the M1 to have chosen to run with the soft tire at the rear, never entered the game and finished the 7th race, behind his teammate Franco Morbidelli. Behind them are the Ducati of Miller and Petrucci, with Mir closing the top ten.
