S1 E5: A great last lap battle for the third spot saw a MotoGP rookie take his first premier class podium. Jorge Lorenzo flew off from his pole position wasting little time in finding a rapid rhythm and by lap seven his advantage at the head of the race was a substantial one at over five seconds. Meanwhile Dovizioso and De Puniet ignited an intense contest for second spot, with Hayden hot on their tails. Rookie Ben Spies was also making progress as he moved through to enter the top five and latched onto the chase for a podium spot. Soon Dovizioso, De Puniet and Hayden were separated by less than half a second as they continued their tactical tussle for the final two podium spots – Spies keeping a tag on as well. With three laps to go Hayden and Spies both managed to pass De Puniet, and the final lap provided a fitting climax as Spies got through on Hayden at Farm Curve to take third spot, a position he held to the finish whilst ahead Lorenzo crossed the line first, ahead of Dovizioso. In Moto2 there was great drama on the final lap as Tom Lüthi ran wide and Jules Cluzel went through on him to take his first World Championship win. In 125cc Marc Marquez made it back-to-back victories as he won a fiercely contested fight for first place with Pol Espargaró.
