Alex Rins took the win by just 0.011s from Alex Marquez in a final corber decider. Enea Bastianini (Junior Team GO&FUN) and Miguel Oliveira (Mahindra Racing) had also run with the Spanish pair in a leading group of four riders. On this occasion, Miller couldn’t run with the leaders and spent his time involved in a group scrap for fifth, a few seconds back at the end. Marquez remains second in the overall standings while Rins moves up to third place, 29 behind the leader. For Rins, this was his first win since Phillip Island late last year: “I am very happy to have taken this win. Everything worked out well for us – the last three corners were perfect – although it was very difficult to follow a strategy when part of a four-rider group fighting hard to win.” “Alex (Marquez) and I had planned to push hard from the start to make it a small group, but we had both Bastianini and (Niccolo) Antonelli making things difficult at the beginning. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the race and it went by very quickly. This victory is undoubtedly down to teamwork and the support of Honda.” Championship leader Tito Rabat rode brilliantly from fourth on the grid to grab the British Moto2 GP on the last lap. Rabat (Marc VDS Race Team) hung with the front group throughout and made his move on early leader and team-mate Mika Kallio in the final stages, honing in on the last lap to take maximum points again. Kallio did his best to hold off his Spanish colleague but was eventually beaten to the line by just 0.063s, whilst Maverick Viñales (Paginas Amarillas HP 40) showed his talent once again to finish in third place, only 0.14s adrift of Rabat. Pole man Johann Zarco came home fourth, 2.571s back from the race winner. Thomas Luthi (Inter wetten Paddock Moto2) and Franco Morbidelli (Italtrans Racing Team) picked up good points in fifth and sixth. An early crash ruined the day for Dominique Aegerter as he clipped Vinales back wheel and ended up in the gravel. The Swiss rider remounted to finish 21st. Also struggling early in the race was debutant Dakota, son of Randy, Mamola, who was forced to pull into the Mapfre Aspar pit with a technical problem. Substituting for ill Spanish rider Nico Terol, Mamola rejoined and gathered experience at the back of the field. A mistake from Jonas Folger (AGR Team) at on lap 13 saw him slide out and take Simone Corsi (NGM For ward Racing) out as well – a DNF for both riders.
