  • MotoGP Argentina GP

Because Marquez had stalled his bike on the start grid, bump started it, then performed an illegal maneuver to get back into position (he should have gone back to the pit lane), he was given a ride-through penalty that nuked his lead.

The head of the DORNA group that runs MotoGP, Carmelo Ezpeleta, on Tuesday told Radio Marca that he would talk to Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi after the Italian accused the Spaniard of deliberately crashing into riders at Sunday's Argentina GP.

"This is a very bad situation, because he destroyed our sport, because he doesn't have any respect for his rivals, never".

"One incident can happen to anybody, you can make a mistake in braking, you can touch the other guy".

"He shouldn't be disqualified, he was already punished in the race", Agostini said of Marquez. "It was unacceptable, unsafe and deserves a very strong penalty", he told MotoGP.com after the race.

The lackluster performances of Factory bikes and valiant display by independent team riders in qualifying has made for a very interesting race in Argentina. "It's a very risky situation and I hope that what I said to Race Director Mike Webb makes them take more responsibility, they have to do something". He added: "I'm scared, I'm scared on the track when I am with Marquez". "I was scared today when I saw his name on the board".

Marquez was hit with a 30s penalty for causing the crash and his attempt to apologise to Rossi post-race was rebuffed, and Toseland called out Marquez's actions on BT Sport's post-race show.

"Whilst we respect Race Direction's decision to impose a 30sec-penalty on Marquez, we feel his unsafe riding style should be further discouraged for safety reasons and for the sake of the sport".


As for Marquez, he was first penalized with for a botched start, and was later forced by Race Direction to give up his position due to clashing with Aleix Espargaro (Gresini Aprilia).

"I obviously tried to push to recover and unfortunately I made some mistakes, the biggest one I believe being with Aleix (Espargaro)".

"I don't want to speak with him". The line was dry but I hit a wet patch and locked the front, released the brake and there was contact. He was gobbling them all up, he could have waited for the next turn and maybe prepare the pass better, while he thought here was room and he didn't make it.

"Marquez was stupid, I say it as a friend". Tech 3 Yamaha rookie Hafizh Syahrin secured his best finish in the ninth place, while Danilo Petrucci of Pramac Racing finished 10th.

Further down the grid, Marquez was posting lap times that were more than a second faster than other riders and was up in sixth place behind Valentino Rossi.

Non-works LCR Honda rider Crutchlow, celebrating a third career MotoGP win and Honda's 750th grand prix success, leads the riders' standing on 38 points and leads Ducati's Italian Andrea Dovizioso by three after two races. Race Direction has his interpretation and the riders have his own interpretation.

It can be a good oppurtunity for top contenders of the title like Marc Marquez, Andrea Dovizioso and Valentino Rossi to establish a healthy lead over its counterparts.
