Aoki finishes first – but it's a Honda Pons 1, 2!

Rossi passed Biaggi and Criville on the track and set about building the gap necessary to take third. Meanwhile, Capirossi made a mistake to allow Barros to pull away from second (first overall).

Capirossi's mistake left the Italian under attack from Rossi – who forced his way through on the last lap – only to crash off his Honda through the esses (where Abe had fallen) his front wheel seemingly sliding away after hitting a puddle on the apex, Capirossi nearly followed his countryman while taking avoiding action, but hung on finish second on aggregate and complete a West one, two.

However, Aoki crossed the line first (even if he could only finish fifth overall) and was without doubt one of the many heroes in a thrilling Italian Grand Prix.

Full aggregate results to follow….

1. Barros
2. Capirossi +8.359secs
3. Biaggi +8.509secs
4. Criville +8.996secs
5. Aoki +20.651secs
6. Gibernau +24.723secs
7. Ukawa +27.745secs
8. Nakano +32.768secs
