Then, with two laps remaining, the race defining moment would unfold. With Binder already having been usurped as the race leader by Marquez, fellow Championship contender Baldassarri tried to squeeze past into Turn 4 but the front end folded, and the pair would go down. A livid Marquez would berate the Italian in the gravel trap, meanwhile Fernandez fortuitously accepted the lead. The 21-year-old would take the chequered flag and a debut victory. He was joine on the podium by the battling Binder, for the the first time this season, and SKY Racing Team VR46’s Luca Marini.
