The Yamaha SRT rider led off the line from second on the grid, and was only overtaken by eventual race winner and newly-crowned six-time premier class world champion Marc Marquez at Turn 3 on the last lap.

He tried to pass Marquez at the final corner, but ran wide and missed out on a maiden win by just under two tenths of a second.

At Misano, Marquez was able to study where Quartararo was strong while shadowing him, and did the same on Sunday in Thailand.
