But he very nearly didn’t achieve the win had it not been for a late-race crash that took out the leading rider.

That isn’t to say it was an easy ride for Vinales. The rider did manage to secure a solid setup during warm-up, but he started the race on the wrong tires and had to work doubly hard to stay up front.

When Miller ran wide (as often happens when fast-starting riders arrive hot into One) Marc Márquez passed for second.

Premac rider Francesco Bagnaia pushed into the lead early in the race, opening up a large gap between himself and the competition while chaos struck behind him. Valentino Rossi slid and ultimately had to withdraw from competition. Brad Binder crashed.

It was, unfortunately, Bagnaia’s race to lose. On lap 21, he was managing a one-second gap between himself and second-place Vinales when he lost control in Turn 6 and crashed.

Vinales took the lead, and he didn’t look back.

Disappointment came for Fabio Quartararo, who was sitting firmly in third place and battling with Joan Mir for second. He exceeded track limits one too many times and was served with a long lap penalty. A long lap penalty requires a rider to ride through a specifically designated line through the run-off asphalt that is several seconds slower than the racing line.
