Viñales: "I have no words! I just want to congratulate all the team. I'm so excited. Right now I'm living my dream because it's been such a long time without a win." 


Marquez: "It's like a victory. I saw Viñales was faster than me. I chased him just to get away from Quartararo. But I'm happy, this is a track where we struggle and we were there. Very happy!"


Quartararo: "It was really difficult to move the bike. I led the race for the first time so I'm happy. I hope I can rest my arm a bit now because now it's hard."

26/26: Viñales is back! A brilliant win for the Catalan, coming home 4.8s clear of Marquez. Quartararo makes it back to back podiums, while Dovizioso just holds off Morbidelli and Petrucci.


26/26: Viñales has been immense. He's a full second quicker than everyone. A 1st win of the year is just around the corner.


25/26: Mir's back to 8th after running off track at T3! Dovizioso still holds 4th, a decent result all things considered. 


25/26: Marquez has backed off and acknowledged 2nd will be enough. Viñales' lead is now 2s.


24/26: Morbidelli has passed Mir and now sits just behind Petrucci. 4th is still within reach. 


24/26: Viñales now has 0.7s in hand. This is his to lose. 


23/26: Marquez isn't taking this lying down. Not by a long shot. He's keeping that gap at 0.5s - nothing more.


22/26: Morbidelli has some real pace now, and he's joined the Dov-Pet-Mir fight. Crutchlow has lost time after nearly tagging his rear end into T1. 


22/26: Another personal best time from Viñales on lap 21 - the 2nd lap in a row he's done that. He has some breathing space now, 0.5s ahead.


21/26: Viñales' lead is up to 1/2 a second. 


20/26: We've waited 2 and 1/2 years for this, but finally we have the Viñales-Marquez punch up. It's finely poised. Quartararo is 1.5s back in 3rd. 


19/26: Mir's got by Petrucci! A phenomenal showing by the rookie, who sits 4th at present.


This was how much speed Quartararo lost with the earlier head-shake from his Yamaha on the back straight...


19/26: Dovizioso's really in trouble. Now Mir's past at De Strubben.


18/26: Quartararo is out of this fight for the victory. The Dutch TT is now a two-rider duel - and what a duel it is! Vinñales is back through under T12! 


18/26: Viñales makes a mess of T1 and suddenly Marquez is 0.4s clear! 


17/26: Petrucci has passed Dovizioso at T5.
