The Italian, starting tenth on the grid on row 4, moved up strongly into fourth by lap 18 but over the next few laps he suffered a performance drop in the rear tyre and could only finish the race in eighth place. In the overall standings Dovizioso is now in third, six points behind Marquez and one point behind Viñales, but four ahead of Rossi.
