Quartararo snatched the lead at the first corner away from Francesco Bagnaia, who started in pole position, and never looked back, but later revealed he had suffered with illness all weekend. “I’m tired, I was sick most of the weekend and was coughing during the race,” he said, “but I am super happy.”

This is his third win this season and Quartararo claimed back-to-back victories having also won the Catalan MotoGP at the start of June.
