MotoGP's Valentino Rossi is 'Scared' of Marc Marquez's Riding Style

MotoGP's Valentino Rossi is 'Scared' of Marc Marquez's Riding Styleā€¯

Yamaha star Valentino Rossi hit out at Marc Marquez for his unsafe riding at the Argentine Grand Prix, criticising the reigning MotoGP for "destroying our sport". This left Miller's Ducati GP17 the only bike on the grid in his well-earned pole position.

Cal Crutchlow narrowly held off Johann Zarco to win the 2018 MotoGP Grand Prix of Argentina on Sunday, a race that will go down as one of the most eventful and dramatic of the year.

"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". Having them all start from the pit lane wasn't an option, so instead, the grid was laid out anew, with Miller receiving a head start.

Honda team principal Alberto Puig backed up his rider's version of events, while admitting the incident was the root of Marquez's incident-strewn race.

Cal Crutchlow wins the action-packed Argentina MotoGP, but it's Marc Marquez who grabbed the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Trump says he was unaware of Stormy Daniels payment
Nearly immediately after the president's statements were reported, Daniels' attorney challenged him to make them under oath. On Monday, Trump's lawyers sought to get that lawsuit out of federal court and into private arbitration .

Nevertheless, the Argentina GP started with Miller in the lead but was quickly denied of his lead by a charging Marquez.

With six laps to go, Miller had a major moment at Turn 13 and gave up the lead to Crutchlow and dropped back from the lead battle. Following him were Dani Pedrosa of Honda, Tito Rabat of Avintia Racing, Alex Rins and Marc Marquez. Pedrosa's race came to a disastrous end after an overzealous move from Zarco pushed him off wide and on to a wet patch. After the 15 minutes of Q1, a dry line had started to appear on the track but the riders chose to keep the wet setup while going into Q2, with the exception of Jack Miller, Marc Marquez and Cal Crutchlow.

With Marquez out of the way, the top four of Miller, Rins, Zarco and Crutchlow broke away out front, escaping into the distance from the chasing pack that was led by Andrea Dovizioso.

Meanwhile Marquez had passed Ducati Team rider Andrea Dovizioso for seventh and was chasing the works Yamahas of Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales.

Meantime, at the front, the battle for the win was intensifying between Zarco, Crutchlow and Rins, while Miller dropped back a little owing to a mistake. Enea Bastianini (Honda) threatened late in the race to take his first podium of the season, but a mistake on the last lap ended his chances, and he finished a solid fourth. He was given a 30-second penalty for his reckless behaviour by race officials, meaning he slipped to 18 spot. Danilo Petrucci was tenth, whilst Pol Espargaro was eleventh.
