Argentina MotoGP: Rossi Scared To Ride Alongside Marquez After Latest Clash

Valentino Rossi has admitted to feeling "scared" by the presence of reigning world champion Marc Marquez on the grid, warning that MotoGP could become "very dangerous" should he continue riding as he does.

Rossi and Marquez, who have 11 premier-class titles between them, have enjoyed a famously fractious relationship as a result of a series of on-track controversies-and came to blows again in Sunday's Termas de Rio Hondo race.

Crutchlow took advantage to record Honda's 750th Grand Prix success. British rider Crutchlow capitalised on the situation to take the race lead and was followed closely by Zarco and Rins. Marquez was absolutely flying as he was able to pass Miller for race lead in the second lap itself.

The organisers delayed the start, citing safety concerns, and following an impromptu team boss meeting, all riders but Miller were moved several rows back, leaving the Australian sitting solo at the sharp end of the grid. In second place was Hafizh's Monster Tech 3 Yamaha team mate Zarco, 0.251 of a second behind, and Rins on a Suzuki in third.

City 'need to keep the heads up' insists Danilo
Virgil van Dijk has urged his team-mates to adopt the right mind-set when they take on Manchester City on Tuesday night. Guardiola will be desperate to see his side put in a display filled with more pride against Liverpool on Tuesday.

Pole sitter Jack Miller finished fourth, behind victor Cal Crutchlow, at a damp and chaotic Argentine MotoGP race.

"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".

The Catalan would exit the pit lane in 20th place, with Miller back in the lead.

"I'm scared - I'm scared on the track when I am with Marquez", the nine-time champion told Autosport. As weird as it was, Marquez did manage to get crank his bike again but made a crucial mistake soon after - instead of starting from the pit-lane, he ignored the rules and started from the grid.

The pair sold for 10,000 Australian dollars, while Sotheby's had anticipated between 10,000 and 15,000 Australian dollars. The date - April 7 - is significant to the actor as it is both his birthday and wedding anniversary.

"Valentino pushes a lot, but he was also in the past 25-years-old and everybody will remember".

Crutchlow, who now leads the overall standings with 38 points from the season's first two races, is the first Briton to lead the championship since Barry Sheene in 1979.

Marquez passed Maverick Vinales to finish fifth at the chequered flag but was handed a 30-second penalty for his collision with Rossi.

"But from Friday morning on, Marquez did this to [Maverick] Vinales, to [Andrea] Dovizioso, to me, and on Saturday morning, and today he went straight through four riders".

Salman Khan walks out of Jodhpur Central Jail
Four other actors who starred with him in the movie and were also charged with the offence have been acquitted. But he successfully appealed the conviction verdict when the Bombay High Court cleared him of all charges.

Crutchlow, celebrating his third career MotoGP win, said: "It was nice to win but it was to be expected". Andrea Dovizioso finished sixth, just in front of Tito Rabat who wrapped up a solid weekend with a great result in seventh.
