Bagnaia was denied the chance to start at the head of the grid despite setting a record lap on Saturday as he exceeded track limits and the Italian hit the tarmac on lap 20 after losing control of his bike at turn six.

Seven-times MotoGP champion Valentino Rossi, who was chasing his 200th podium finish, crashed at turn four on the second lap in tricky conditions following earlier rain.

The first seven rounds of the COVID-19-hit season have produced six different winners, with Quartararo taking the opening two races in Jerez, Spain.

Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso finished eighth to cling on to the world championship lead with 84 points, a point ahead of Quartararo and Vinales. (Reporting by Shrivathsa Sridhar in Bengaluru, editing by Ed Osmond)
