Incident[edit]

Julian Simon, a Spanish racer in the 125cc race, celebrated victory one lap early, as he was confused with the sign that his team had shown him. He thought the sign said he was first position with no laps left, when the sign actually says 'L1' which means that he had one lap remaining. Andrea Iannone stormed to the lead and won, whilst Simon could only finish fourth.
