Marc Marquez rode to a flag-to-flag victory in the 2019 MotoGP Argentina Grand Prix on Sunday. The Honda rider finished ahead of Yamaha Valentino Rossi by a huge margin at the Autodromo de Termas de Rio Hondo.
Defending champion Marquez has moved ahead of Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso, who settled for third, in the standings after two races. Marquez made the most of the pole to blitz the first lap and open a worrying gap over the chasing pack. Those further back were already embroiled in an intense scrap to stay in touch. Rossi was staking his claim after quickly surpassing Yamaha teammate Maverick Vinales. The latter's strategy was coming in for criticism.
Dovizioso and Rossi continued to fight for second, with the latter looking determined to snap a run of nine races without a place on the podium. Fourth place was prompting another interesting scrap with Suzuki's Alex Rins making his move.
