However, the other Mahindra rider Miguel Oliveira missed out on points as he finished 16th on Sunday after recovering from a 11th lap crash. It was the first time that Mahindra failed to get both riders in the World Championship points.
The race was stopped after a crash with more than two-thirds distance completed and the results were taken from one lap earlier, the 15th of a scheduled 23. Vazquez said: “This is my second top-10 this year and Mahindra has had one or both riders in the top-10 at every race so far.
This is really important, so finally I am happy with this position. I had a slight problem with the engine temperature coming up so the bike was not really fast. I tried my best and then the red flag came out.”
