Britain's Crutchlow wins MotoGP in Argentina

It's been an incredible weekend for F1 fans and MotoGP too ensured that the action was any less nail biting. Because the press flocked to Marquez and Rossi after the Argentina Grand Prix, and many were missing from the post-race conference, the race victor, LCR Honda Castrol's Cal Crutchlow, had some negative words for the press.

Cal Crutchlow won the race but Rossi and Marquez's scuffle grabbed the limelight in Argentina. However, the main highlight of the race wasn't the fight at the front, but the events that were unfolding at the back, especially with Marc Marquez. If all the riders race like this, this will become a very risky sport and it will finish in a bad way.

"It was nice to win but it was to be expected", a confident Crutchlow said. The Pramac Ducati rider gambled on slicks during the rain-hit qualifying and took the pole.

Marquez then moved up to behind Miller, just as Zarco collided with Pedrosa, pushing the Honda rider onto a wet patch, down and out of the race.

"When the marshal, I asked him, because he is connected directly with Race Direction and I ask him, 'pitlane, or grid?'" Most riders chose to switch to wet tyres, but Miller held on to slicks having proved his mettle in the wet during qualifying.

After an impromptu meeting with the top bosses and the organisers at Dorna, it was decided that Miller will be starting in the front row, while the other riders will pushed further back. Marquez had stalled his bike after the warm-up and was trying to jump start it in the middle of the pack, seconds before the race start!

Nadal routs Zverev, Ferrer outlasts Kohlschreiber to lead Spain past Germany
But 16-times Grand Slam victor Nadal kept his foot on the gas and wrapped up the match in two hours and 33 minutes. Zverev had given Germany a 1-0 lead by defeating Ferrer in three sets.

In 2015 both riders were summoned to a meeting amid a "damaging feud" between the two after Rossi knocked Marquez off his bike during the Malaysian Grand Prix in October that year.

Marquez sent Rossi tumbling to the grass with just four laps to go of the second MotoGP race of the season in South America.

With three laps to go Zarco leads and Miller, despite the initial 30m advantage drops to fourth place. Vinales was promoted to P4, followed by Dovizioso, Rabat, Andra Iannone of Suzuki.

Rossi, who was not present in the garage for Marquez's visit later labeled his efforts a Public Relations stunt and suggested the Honda rider is not truly apologetic, and that it was only done for the attention of the television cameras.

"Then I start the race, "ride-through penalty" appears on the dashboard, something that I didn't understand, because if one marshal says you are allowed, why then in a few laps say you are not allowed and you need to have a ride-through?"

"A satellite team leading the championship, we are really pleased".
