Classification was marked by the change of results in two phases. In the first, a fall at the last minute caused the exclusion of Matteo Bertelle from the return, who ended up being eliminated from the classification by David Salvador. Already in the second round, Migno appeared in second place, but in the review, he fell to fourth. Moreira and Holgado had better chances and replaced the Italian.

The French Moto3 Grand Prix will take place this Sunday (14), starting at 6am, and will be broadcast on ESPN and Star+.
