In a flag to flag wet race Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team), after being unable to match the pace of the leading group led by Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team), took a gamble on the seventeenth lap and entered the pits changing to a bike with slicks. This decision proved a master stroke on a drying track with Marquez immediately lapping much faster than the rest of the field, passing everyone to win the race by over nine seconds.
Second place went to Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda), who like most riders left the change to slicks too late finishing ahead of Andrea Dovizioso who passed the intermediate tyre shod Scott Redding (OCTO pramac Yakhinch) for third spot on the last lap leaving Redding a disappointed fourth.
Fifth place went to Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team) with Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) sixth.
Championship contenders Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) and Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) had a poor race with Rossi finishing eighth and Lorenzo fifteenth.
