16/22: Rossi is under Viñales at the last corner.

17:32

15/22: Mrorbidelli has dropped away. Viñales posts his personal best lap on lap 14 and is now all over Rins. Rossi is right there, too.

Another brilliant move from Rins, passing Marquez at T15!

14/22: Miller has retired too. Desperate day for the Pramac Ducati guys.

14/22: Rins is on it, hacking the 1/2s disadvantage to the front in half a lap. Dov, Mar, Rin the top 3.

11/22: This could be crucial - the last 2 laps Rins has led out of the final corner and just had enough in hand over Dovizioso to lead over the line.
