A red-flagged race in Assen put the MotoGP riders through their paces, Jack Miller mastering the wet to take his maiden premier class win after some of the favourites crashed out of the Grand Prix. Known for his ability in the wet, Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) made steady progress off the line and soon found himself in second behind Marquez. After an injury-hit start to the season, Miller seized his chance and took the lead of the race at the final chicane on lap four after the restart, as bad weather halted the proceedings. Marquez tried to close down the Australian but Miller kept his cool. Miller’s victory is the first MotoGP win by an Australian since Casey Stoner’s final victory at Phillip Island in 2012. He also becomes the first rider on a non-factory bike to win a race since Toni Elias won the infamous Portuguese GP in 2006.
