Maverick Vinales has claimed his first MotoGP victory with a dominant ride in the British MotoGP at Silverstone!

Cal Crutchlow claims second with Valentino Rossi third, while Marc Marquez runs off track during a late battle with Crutchlow and drops down the order.

The original race was red-flagged on the opening lap following a huge accident involving Loris Baz and Pol Espargaro. Baz required the most treatment at trackside, but waved as he was moved to the ambulance.

Alex Lowes was making his MotoGP race debut, in place of the injured Bradley Smith at Tech 3 Yamaha. Smith suffered knee ligament injuries at last weekend's Oschersleben round of the World Endurance Championship and has also been ruled out of Misano.

Jack Miller was returning to action after missing the last two races due to injuries in Austria...
