Also a few positions at the back, Crutchlow was chasing Dovizioso and also crashed his bike. The conditions of the race gave us more crashes like the one of Loris Baz who was trying to catch Miller and also a crash for his teammate Hector Barbera.
Smith fought against his teammate and overtook Pol Espargaró and also Iannone, who retired due a problem with his racing suit, and meanwhile we saw how both Aprilia retired after crashing, something that also happened with Rabat, being the 9th crash of the day.
It wasn’t the day for Pedrosa, who lost all the positions that he won at qualifying saw how he was overtook by Crutchlow, a rider who crashed and could return to the race.
During the final laps of the race, Marquez was chasing Danilo Petrucci who wanted his first victory at MotoGP and both riders started a battle of fastest laps with a few woobles of them. On the final lap Marquez overtook Petrucci and took the victory at the San Marino GP.
