The Spaniard got in the front group quickly and settled for fourth. Halfway in the race the temperatures started to drop and a few spots of rain appeared. Salom almost lost the front with the harder tire. He got his bike under control but lost connection with the first three. Salom won the fight for fourth with Miguel Oliveira and Danny Kent.

With Maverick Vinales out of the race after he quit with his team Salom regained second place in the championship. Sandro Cortese was crowned Moto3 champion.

Luis Salom (4th):
“I tried the harder tire than the one we used in practice. That turned out to be a mistake when the clouds came up and temperatures dropped. I almost lost it. But I had a good day, a good fight and I am happy with the result.”
