Marquez and Pedrosa got a good start from the front row. But Dani was soon overtaken by Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider Jonas Folger on lap five. The German then overtook Marquez on the following lap but Respol Honda rider managed to move back on top on lap 11. Marc dedicated his 31st MotoGP win (the same tally as Eddie Lawson) to Nicky Hayden, who passed away in May.
