The Valencia route was a real battle for survival due to wet conditions. At the very beginning of the race, Aleic Espargaro and Jack Miller experienced falls. Marks Markess, Danilo Petruči, Andrea Inanone and others soon joined the list. Altogether, after 14 laps, the red flags appeared on the track, indicating the cessation of the race due to adverse weather conditions.
For the second time in the race for riders to start, with the 14 laps behind, the first position was Alex Rins, followed by Andrea Doviciozo and Valentino Rosi. Directly after the second start, Dovicioso managed to take over the race. On the other hand, Rossi left the track, allowing Aleksim Espargaro to take third place. The leading rider did not change the positions until the end of the race. Consequently, the Dovicioso season ended just like it began – with victory. Rinse finished second, but Espargar climbed to the MotoGP award-winning pedestal for the first time in the career.
With fifth place in Valencia, Dani Pedros finished his brilliant career. After leaving the track, Valentino Rosi returned to the 13th place. Two more motorcyclists finished the famous Italian. Nine motorcyclists did not reach the finish.
