Maverick Vinales suffered his first defeat as a Yamaha rider after falling from fourth, early in the race.

Team-mate Valentino Rossi now leads the world championship standings after passing Dani Pedrosa to claim second, despite a 0.3s post-race penalty for cutting the track after a close moment with Johann Zarco.
