In the closing couple of minutes, rather crucially, Championship leader Mir was P12. His teammate Rins popped up into P8 before Mir then went P6 just before the chequered flag came out, with Quartararo lingering in P17. That changed on his final lap though, the Frenchman shot up to P6 with teammate Morbidelli taking top spot. Miller then produced a late time to claim P1 for the second time today, Aleix Espargaro demoted Morbidelli to third and this movement saw Mir drop to P11. Title contender Morbidelli, like Miller, showed strong pace in both conditions.
