MotoGP: Cal Crutchlow Beats Johann Zarco To Win Scintillating Argentina GP

MotoGP: Cal Crutchlow Beats Johann Zarco To Win Scintillating Argentina GP

But Marquez still got an earful following his mistake on the track.

With four laps to go, Marquez climbed up the order and on to the back of Movistar Yamaha's Valentino Rossi but once again went in too hot up the inside of the Italian rider at Turn 13 and the pair collided in a similar incident to Marquez's hit with Espargaro.

The one who made the difference on this insane day was the aforementioned Cal Crutchlow: the English rider skilfully remained calm within the quartet (which turned into a trio) battling for the win, making his definitive move on the final two laps.

The Argentine Grand Prix verged on the farcical in a race won by Cal Crutchlow but dominated by chaos on the grid and the antics of defending champion Marc Marquez.

Seconds before the rescheduled start to the race, Marquez stalled and with remarkable composure, bump-started his Honda and was ready to go. He then pushed his bike across the finish line to come in 11th and score his first points in Moto3.

He was then quickly reeled in and passed by the charging Marquez - who was two seconds clear when he was given the ride-through on lap five of 24, which dropped him down to 19th.

Alex Rins took third place behind Crutchlow and Zarco.
