Andrea Dovizioso wins his home Italian MotoGP for Ducati, ahead of Yamaha title leader Maverick Vinales and Pramac's Danilo Petrucci.

Valentino Rossi, riding with chest and stomach injuries from a motocross training accident last week, fought with the lead group throughout on his way to fourth place.

Reigning world champion Marc Marquez was never a contender at the front and lost out to Alvaro Bautista for fifth. Repsol Honda team-mate Dani Pedrosa took Cal Crutchlow on the final lap, while trying to pass the Englishman for 11th.

Sylvain Guintoli was again replacing injured rookie Alex Rins at Suzuki, while Ducati test rider Michele Pirro had his first wild-card appearance of the season.
