Marquez: "I think it was the first time I used the soft front. Normally this is a good track for Ducati, a good track for Yamaha. But we there."

13:52

Dovizioso: "The feeling wasn't special from Friday. The speed was there but I wasn't comfortable enough to push in the race. I couldn't stay with Marc. He was a bit faster, but I didn't want to take that risk. The soft tyre dropped a bit too much at the end. Second is good but we want more."

Petrucci: "In the first laps I made 2 mistakes and lost many positions. But I had this feeling, started to push, push, push. At the end me and Dovi were fighting hard. I'm really happy to score this podium. I needed it a lot."

25/27: Petrucci out-brakes Dovizioso at T7, but he's wide. The #04 is back through. 2nd place is between this pair. 

13:38

24/27: Nice 4-way fight for 2nd at the moment with Dovizioso, Petrucci, Miller and Rossi all together. It's hard to imagine Rossi being able to outbrake the Ducatis here, though.

21/27: Quartararo posts the fastest lap of the race. He'll be cursing himself for that early mistake, when he run on at T8. This will be a case of 'what might have been...'
