Crutchlow wins, Marquez and Rossi collide

Miller late show secures Argentina pole ahead of Pedrosa

The Catalan's Repsol Honda collided with Rossi's Movistar Yamaha, shoving the Italian to the edge of the track and onto the wet grass run-off area. "Rossi is very angry and Marquez feels frustrated, I understand both of them, the situation they're in", said Ezpeleta.

"If you take for example what's happened this weekend-one by one, can happen, can happen to everybody, you can make a mistake in braking, you can touch the other guy, happens, this is racing", Rossi said. Marquez did head to the Yamaha pits post race to apologise, only to be sent back. So he went to his position because he thought the marshals were telling him to go there and nobody could take him out from that position and so that was the starting point to not a very good 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.

He said he had spoken to race director Mike Webb and hoped his words had an effect.

"When I start to arrive on the grid and I have a problem with the engine and I stop, normally it never happens", Marquez recalled.

"Today what happened with Valentino was a mistake, a outcome of the track conditions because I locked the front".




"When you go 300km per hour on the track, you have to have a respect for your rival, you have to be strong, you have to make the maximum, but doing it like this is over".

A first misjudged pass attempt saw him barge into Aprilia's Aleix Espargaro, for which race direction ordered him to drop a place, all before the calamitous incident with Rossi. "I'm thinking about Iannone who knocked Dovi down two years ago, he should have been disqualified then, but if we do this we'd have no-one racing". It's true he came to him very fast, he was lapping three or four seconds faster than Aleix and maybe approached to him a little faster. The line was dry but I hit a wet patch and locked the front, released the brake and there was contact.

Explaining the sequence events to media afterwards however, the Spaniard said there was no marshal instructing him to leave the grid when he indicated he had stalled, and that he was later given the all-clear to start along with the rest of the pack.

But Marquez's team are sticking by their rider. Frenchman Johann Zarco finishing a close second. The previous race victor and Factory Ducati rider Andrea Dovizioso will start from eight, whereas his teammate and two-time world champion Jorge Lorenzo could do no better than 14th spot on the grid.

Local hero Gabriel Rodrigo, on the only other non-Honda in the top 10, dropped back from the leading group late in the race, but held on for a top 10 finish in his home Grand Prix, ahead of top qualifier Arbolino, who carved his way through to 10th after opting for slicks at the start of the race.
