ALEX MAR­QUEZ (ESTRELLA GALI­CIA KALEX) scored his first Moto2 win. In the early stages of the race Mar­quez and team-mate Franco Mor­bidelli raced ahead to dis­pute the lead be­tween them­selves. Mar­quez led the first seven laps, putting Mor­bidelli ahead, but the very next lap the cham­pi­onship leader slid off.

That left Mar­quez four sec­onds clear of rookie Francesco Bag­naia (Sky VR46 Kalex) who had a su­perb ride to sec­ond, 3.4 sec­onds be­hind Mar­quez and just ahead of Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM). Oliveira made sure of his sec­ond podium of the year when he got the bet­ter of Mat­tia Pasini (Ital­trans Kalex) who had used up his rear grip.

Franco Mor­bidelli had a crash early on in the race
