Malaysian Hafizh Syahrin ninth in Argentina MotoGP

Malaysian Hafizh Syahrin ninth in Argentina MotoGP

"Other mistakes were made by race direction on the grid, and others were due to the hard conditions, but one thing I know for sure: never in my career have I intentionally hit another rider". "In that case I put my hand up, but nobody was there. He was gobbling them all up, he could have waited for the next turn and maybe prepare the pass better, while he thought there was room and he didn't make it. It's not right, I don't want to defend him but you have to see the situation too: with the tension there is, you're not lucid like you are sitting at a desk". This meant Miller got a bit of a head-start.

A delayed start was announced and Miller was given a five row start on the rest of the field, then as the field up after the sighting lap Marc Marquez staled his Honda and push started it and inexplicably rode against the circuit to take his place on the grid, a move that saw him suffer a pit lane ride through penalty dropping him from first to nearly last. "And nobody could take him out from that position, so that was the starting point of not a very good race". When I saw the penalty message on the dashboard, I didn't understand why, but I of course complied. "I obviously tried to push to recover and unfortunately I made some mistakes, the biggest one I believe being with Aleix (Espargaro)". It's true he came to him very fast, he was lapping three or four seconds faster than Aleix and maybe approached to him a little faster.

"Always I try to avoid". Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales couldn't adapt to the changing conditions on the track and will now start the race from 11th and 9th spot respectively. The line was dry but I hit a wet patch and locked the front, released the brake and there was contact.

Explaining the sequence events to media afterwards however, the Spaniard said there was no marshal instructing him to leave the grid when he indicated he had stalled, and that he was later given the all-clear to start along with the rest of the pack. Hafizh Syahrin put in a stunning performance to take ninth and top rookie for Yamaha Tech 3, just ahead of Miller's team-mate Danilo Petrucci and Pol Espargaro in KTM's best premier-class result yet.

"It was a tricky Sunday". However, considering the fact that virtually all of the riders were starting from the pit-lane, the race officials chose to delay the start and send all back to the grid in the name of safety.

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

The start of the Argentina Grand Prix was probably the most odd in the history of the sport.

"It seems there is a lack of respect for the show we put on". We pushed and this is disrespectful.
