The MotoGP world was turned upside down again as KTM Racing rider Brad Binder secured his second Sprint Race win of the season. KTM Jack Miller was also in the mix in an intense battle at the front of the field. The two exchanged positions throughout the race, but a late lunge down in Turn 6 secured the win for Binder. It was an overall successful day for KTM Racing wth Jack Miller rounding out the podium in third. Francesco Bagnaia stole second place away on the final lap while the KTMs were involved in their scrap for first. Bagnaia was able to double draft the two to make up one place.

Alex Marquez (Gresini Racing) and Franco Morbidelli (Monster Energy Yamaha) came together and set off a chain reaction that took out championship leader Marco Bezzecchi and Augusto Fernandez. Morbidelli was abel to continue but finished in P16. Bezzecchi was able to salvage a P9 finish and Augusto Fernandez finished P17 for GasGas Factory racing.
