Suzuki’s new shapeshifter upgrade has seemingly brought the Japanese manufacturer into the fold for race victories. Mir was keeping pace with Martin around a Ducati stronghold which bodes well for the reigning champion and team-mate Álex Rins for this weekend.
KTM’s Brad Binder put together a fine ride to steal fourth place on the final lap but the team did not perform as well as it might have hoped on home soil, especially with Miguel Oliveira securing a win for Tech3 12 months ago.
