With mixed conditions, an initial red flag and then a load of faffing around over tyre choices before the restart, you could be forgiven for being a bit worried about how chaotic the (reduced) run might go, but it turned out pretty well actually, with Alvaro finally coming home a fine, respectable and close third.
Simoncelli was first and Alex Debon just behind, with just 1.2 seconds covering the first five riders over the finish line.
After a lacklustre start, Alvaro soon warmed up – spending most of the race swapping places with Hiroshi Aoyama and Hector Barbera – and finally took Aoyama heading into the first corner, and then went on to break the circuit lap record on the last lap.
Triffick!
