    The British rider Cal Crutchlow finished second on the home ground, 3.5s from Vinales and just 0.583secs ahead of Valentino Rossi. After a fierce battle with Rossi and Crutchlow, Marc Marquez ran wide while trying to overtake Crutchlowís bike and ran wide enough to lose two positions. He ended up crossing the finish line in 4th.
