It was all too easy for Marc Marquez in Argentina, with the Repsol Honda rider storming to a dominating victory at the Autódromo Termas de Río Hondo.
Marquez got a good start and didn’t look back, completely riding the wheels of his Honda machine to take an impressive victory.
Further back, there was a tight battle for the podium, with Valentino Rossi pipping Andrea Dovizioso to second place after the two Italians fought throughout the entire race.
It would be a disappointing Sunday for LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow, who suffered a penalty for a jump start, leaving him to fight through the order.
But who were the true winners and losers from the Argentina GP? Here, we look at four things we found out from the race in Termas de Rio Hondo.
Marquez is unstoppable on his day
Marc Marquez is an unbelievable talent. Nobody out there watching him today could say otherwise. If you’re not respecting this mans ability on a motorcycle, I don’t know why you bother watching this sport.
Yes, this win was boring as a spectator. However, his talent is just immense and this was just another showing of it. Sublime.
Cal Crutchlow's luck
The Briton got a podium at Qatar, and could’ve easily gotten one here…
…but his jump start penalty put an end to that.
His riding afterwards must be given all the plaudits, however, considering he was basically given a 25-second penalty. Who knows where he could’ve ended up if he had been penalty free at the place he won at last year.
The Doctor still has it
Seemingly every year we now have the rumours of “is it his last year?”
But Rossi showed here why he still has it. Despite being on the slowest factory bike on the grid, the Doctor was able to hang and beat what many consider the best.
He said afterwards that he felt like he was riding like he used to, when he was younger, and I really hope this trend continues.
Alex Rins' fightback
Alex Rins deserves enormous credit for his race today.
The Spaniard started way down the order and had to weave through the pack.
But a fifth-placed finish is a massive achievement, and the Suzuki rider showed why he was signed by the Japanese manufacturer last year. Superb.
