At the start, Viñales led for two laps, then slowed, being passed by Quartararo and Márquez. Quartararo then led with Márquez right behind. Viñales, as in some previous races, recovered pace but could not reach the lead pair. Valentino Rossi, having moved to fourth with difficulty, was back some 10 seconds. Márquez attacked from the start of the last lap, was repassed, and the brief battle was won by Márquez as Quartararo had to lift at a point. The finish was one Honda followed by the Yamahas of Quartararo, Viñales, Rossi, and Franco Morbidelli.
