Espargaro completes home double as Bagnaia crashes out after dramatic start

The Grand Prix race started with a major crash involving five Ducatis at turn one. Enea Bastianini collided with Johann Zarco, causing a chain reaction that took down Marco Bezzecchi and both Gresini riders. The race was temporarily stopped due to a red flag, and polesitter Francesco Bagnaia had a highside crash before being hit by Brad Binder’s KTM. After the restart, Jorge Martin took the lead, but both factory Aprilia riders quickly overtook him. Pol Espargaro retired due to technical issues, and Martin was overtaken by Alex Espargaro for second place. Binder also retired from the race. Maverick Vinales and Espargaro fought for the lead, but Espargaro eventually took the win, securing Aprilia’s first 1-2 finish in MotoGP.
