The 900th premier class race certainly didn’t let us down. It was a race that saw the Championship close right up with second place finisher Miller now sitting just 14 adrift of Quartararo. Rookie sensation Brad Binder (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) is fourth, 21 points adrift, with a mere six points separating the South African and Oliveira in ninth. 25 points – a race win total – covers Quartararo down to seventh place Valentino Rossi (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP). Moreover, five of the six manufacturers are inside the top eight in the standings, split by 26 points – Yamaha, Ducati, KTM, Honda and Suzuki. The first three have all won this season.
