Marc Marquez, who is also the world champion of MotoGP Racing, soon reclaimed the No. 1 position when he finished his first finish in the second race, the Argentinian Grand Prix. Marquez won the legendary Valentino Rossi with a distance of up to 9,816 seconds.

The two took turns taking the lead in the race, but in the end, “Desmo Dovi” only won with a microscopic distance of 0.023 seconds.

However, that did not reappear at the Autódromo Termas de Río Hondo racetrack (in Santiago del Estero). The driver of the Honda team, with the advantage of starting first, soon created a 1-second gap with the legendary Italian racer. Rossi excelled in taking the No. 2 spot, though only starting in the 4th position.

Then, after the first 10 laps of the race, which had only 25 laps, Marquez created a distance of up to 7 seconds. At times, he increased the gap to more than 12 seconds, which is a staggering distance for long-distance cyclists.

In the end, Marquez‘s victory won at a distance of 9.8 seconds faster than Rossi. The third finish was “Desmo Dovi”, he lost to Marquez to more than 10.5 seconds. The 26-year-old rider has won the world championship seven times (with five times crowned in the MotoGP Racing arena) winning too deservedly, retaking the No. 1 spot with 25 plus points.

With this latest result, Marquez has 45 points after 2 races (in the opening race in Qatar, he won second place and got 20 points). He has 5 points more than Dovizioso (Italian rider has 40 points). Ranking from 3rd to fifth are Rossi (Yamaha) – 31 points, Alex Rins (Spain, Suzuki) – 24 points, and Danilo Petrucci (Italy, Ducati) – 20 points.
