Championship leader Stefan Bradl led for the majorty of the race but was unable to hold off Luthi on the brakes in to the final corner. HP rider Pol Espagaro finished third.

Despite Marc Marquez not starting the race due to a crash on Friday - Bradl's second place means Marquez can still win the championship at the final race in Valencia.
