|MotoGP Rider Standings|
Vinales gave the display of a veteran despite his young age (21), as he dominated at the Grand Prix of Britain.
The real action unfolded behind the winning rider, as current world championship leader Marquez battled for position with Crutchlow and Italian legend Rossi.
Rossi was quickest off the mark as he grabbed the lead, but a huge crash occurred on the opening bends. It produced a red flag, as the bikes of Baz and Espargaro flew through the air at Becketts.
Debris was strewn across the track, as medical staff attended to Baz and Espargaro after both men took sickening falls.
Both motorcycles were completely wrecked in the high-speed incident.
Moto GP's official Twitter feed gave updates on the injured riders:
The race restarted after a substantial delay, and Crutchlow took advantage, taking the initiative to head the field early on as Rossi chased him.
Marquez was 11th when the red flag was shown, and despite his more conservative and tactical displays of recent times, he produced his aggressive best once again to rise through the field.
Vinales caught Rossi as he made a play for the front, and he duelled with Crutchlow at the head of the race. The 21-year-old Spaniard was tactically supreme as he maintained a gap between himself and the English rider.
As the young starlet edged away from Crutchlow, Marquez made his move and attacked with intent. Rossi refused to let the pair fight alone and punctured the standings.
Stefan Bradl crashed his Aprilia, causing more drama, and Scott Redding also soon hit the tarmac when he attempted to battle through from ninth place.
There was a further accident when Andrea Iannone pushed hard to take a podium place but crashed with five laps remaining.
As the winner earned his procession to victory, Crutchlow held off seven-time champion Rossi and the irrepressible talent of Marquez.
The Brit reacted to his fine finish after the race, per BT Sport (h/t BBC Sport).
"It was a long race but good fun," said Crutchlow. "We deserved that result. The crowd deserved it. They've backed me for years. Pole and second I'll take that all day long. I expected to be in the top six."
The championship now belongs to Marquez, but the emergence of Vinales reinforces the competitive nature of MotoGP.
Rossi is still in tremendous form as he monitors the development of the wonderful young talent around him, but he is unlikely to lift another world title this season.
