South African Brad Binder got his first win in only his third MotoGP race in Brno on Sunday. This was also a first win for KTM in the class. Binder started from seventh on the grid and made his way to the top to claim a famous rookie victory in a race full of surprises. Franco Morbidelli finished second, while polesitter Johan Zarco managed to stay on the podium despite a long lap penalty after a collision with Pol Espargaro. Pre-race favorites Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Viñales could only manage seventh and fourteenth on the day.
