Next, there are Bezzecchi’s teammates, namely Luca Marini, and Alex Rins (LCR Honda), who complete the list of the top nine, with a time difference of 13.694 seconds and 14.327 seconds respectively.

Surprises don’t just come from Bezzecchi. World champion Francesco Bagnaia crashed at Turn 13 in the last few laps. The racer who is familiarly called Pecco then got up and unfortunately had to finish the race in 16th position.

The Argentina GP race this time was even quieter considering that a number of drivers were absent due to injuries. In total, there are only 17 drivers participating in this Grand Prix.

A few hours before the start of the race, the Repsol Honda Team (HRC) announced that Joan Mir had to be absent due to an injury he suffered after the Sprint race on Sunday WIB.

Previously, Enea Basianini (Ducati Lenovo) was also reported to have suffered a shoulder injury during a crash with Marini in the Portugal GP Sprint session, Saturday (25/3). In addition, the crash involving Marc Marquez (HRC) and Miguel Oliveira (CryptoDATA RNF) also forced both riders to focus on their recovery and missed the Argentina GP.
