"Amazing job this weekend, we prepared really good... Pecco (Bagnaia) was really fast. I tried to save the tyres for the last 10 laps and started to push at the end of the race," Vinales said.

"After he made a mistake, I tried not to crash and take the maximum points. It feels fantastic, I'm very happy... we need to continue like this because we have a lot more potential."

Bagnaia was denied the chance to start at the head of the grid despite setting a record lap on Saturday as he exceeded track limits and the Italian hit the tarmac on lap 20 after losing control of his bike at turn six.

Seven-times MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi, who was chasing his 200th podium finish, crashed at turn four on the second lap in tricky conditions following earlier rain.

Also enduring a disappointing afternoon was South African Brad Binder, winner of the Czech Grand Prix, who suffered an early crash.

The first seven rounds of the COVID-19-hit season have produced six different winners, with Quartararo taking the opening two races in Jerez, Spain.
