He found himself in 8th place after the preliminaries, where he began the race with a great start, making his way to 6th place within the first lap. Rossi kept moving forward without any decrease in his momentum, and on the ninth lap he caught up to his teammate Lorenzo, who was in 2nd place. For the rest of the lap the two kept up an intense back-and-forth between second and third place. At the end of the lap, he found himself in 1st, which he kept for the rest of the race, steadily increasing his lead the entire time. This became his 108th career win.
