The contact between Rossi and Marquez stole the spotlight post-race in Argentina, so much so as to overshadow Cal Crutchlow's win at Termas de Rio Hondo, a win that sees him move into the lead in the championship standings. The press room was half empty for the post-race press conference, something that the LCR rider was not happy about.
Before talking about his race, the Honda rider wanted to address this issue: “Where are the press? This is a lack of respect for the show that we, the top three, put on on the track”.
Cal cuts to the chase: “The media appears to be more interested in something more important, but the important event is here, with the riders who reached the podium. It's an important moment for the whole team, we gave it our all and this behaviour is disrespectful."
Lastly, the LCR rider made a promise before starting to talk about his win: "All those journalists who are not here now should know that they won't be welcome at my media briefings for the rest of the season”.
