With ten­sions still run­ning high be­tween the duo, Ar­gentina was the first time since the fate­ful Sepang clash last year that Rossi and Mar­quez have re­ally come to­gether on track. De­spite the el­bow-toel­bow rac­ing both men re­mained good na­tured about the fight they had in the mid­dle of the race. ROSSI: ÒIT was a good bat­tle and very good fun, be­cause the two bikes are very dif­fer­ent. They have strong points and weak points. It could have been in­ter­est­ing for the rest of the race but un­for­tu­nately I had to stop for the pits.ó MAR­QUEZ: Òwhen he went wide on turn seven, the mem­o­ries [of Sepang] came back to me! I was wait­ing to see what hap­pened, once I got through to the front. It was a nice bat­tle though, some good over­takes and very im­por­tant for the show.ó
