Welcome back everyone, with second instalment of MotoGP in Argentina. After the Qualifying and weather fluctuations seen in Free practices and Qualifiers, the race day conditions were totally different. Which made each team scratch their heads for most appropriate tyre selection. Most of the riders switched from Hard to Medium compound, with few still on Hards. Another importance of this day was, The Doctor was making his 350th Premier class appearance. The only rider in history to reach this number. With the pole position dominated by the world champion Marc Marquez, beside him a surprise entry on first row of Karel Abraham and Cal Crutchlow with 3rd in start. Right after the flag off, Jorge lorenzo was out due his contact with Rear of Iannone resulting the ride through penalty for him. Later after Marc was pushing very hard in lead which made him lose his contact and slipped out on turn 2 in 22nd lap, a horrendous disaster for pole position starter. Espargaro later crashed out of line and took Dovizioso along, dismissal of both the riders. Then it was Pedrosa who slides out at same turn where Marc did and it was a bad day for Repsol Honda team. The battle for second was most eye catching part of the race today. With Cal having a good grip on second position and Rossi poised right behind him. Later calm and concentrated Rossi made a move at turn 5 and successfully won the Second position on podium with Cal 3rd and Maverick grabbing another 25 points as a race leader in championship.
Stay tuned for some more action on 24th April at Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas.
