After keeping the lead off the start, Razgatlioglu was relegated to second by Rea following a small mistake in sector three. 

Michael Rinaldi moved from fifth to third heading into turn one, however, the Ducati rider allowed Andrea Locatelli through after running wide at turn six. 

It was a dreadful opening few laps for Alex Lowes as he went from second to P11. Rinaldi suffered a bizarre fall on lap five - turn three and was unable to continue, before Samuele Cavalieri became the second Ducati rider to crash out just moments later.

On lap eight, there was big contact at the front as Razgatlioglu attempted a late move on Rea. 

The Yamaha rider was unable to get fully alongside Rea and ran into the back of the six-time world champion - pushing both riders wide. 

Leandro Mercado became the third rider to retire after his handlebar was completely broken on the throttle side. 

The gap between Rea and Razgatlioglu then stabilised at around six tenths of a second, while Redding began losing ground on Locatelli for third.

With just seven laps remaining, Razgatlioglu completed a hard but brilliant move on Rea into turn one to claim the lead. 

It must be said, Rea was very compliant and did well to see the Yamaha rider coming, as contact looked inevitable. 

Razgatlioglu then edged away from Rea by a couple of tenths per lap to claim victory and extend his points lead from one to six. Redding gained third place off Locatelli on the final lap. 

After missing Saturday’s Superpole qualifying and FP3 sessions, it has been confirmed that Lucas Mahias will miss the remainder of 2021 due to injury.

Isaac Vinales has chosen not to race today given the tragedy of his cousin, Dean Berta Vinales, who sadly lost his life yesterday following an accident in the WorldSSP300 race.
