Mick Doohan dominates qualifying with more than a second under Kevin Schwantz in 2nd place.

At the start, Wayne Rainey gets the first turn from Wayne Gardner, Doohan and John Kocinski. Doohan gets past Gardner and he and Rainey start forming a gap at the front. Kocinski starts putting pressure on Gardner.

Doohan takes the lead, with Rainey doing everything he can to stay in contact. Schwantz starts moving through the field. It ends in that order.

Schwantz complains that with two laps to go, Gardner almost pushed him into a barrier, and there are heated words after the race.
