Standings after MotoGP Argentina: Bagnaia slipped from the top

The Ducati rider had a strong race with the pace ahead. But when he dueled with fellow Desmosedici owner, Alex Marquez, he fell alone.

Even though he was able to get up, Pecco finished second from the back of the grid which consisted of only 17 drivers. With no additional points in the regular race, he still secured four of the Sprint Race. So the total gain is 41.

This number could not keep him in the highest ranking because his colleague from the VR46 Academy, Marco Bezzecchi, collected more points. The young VR46 Racing racer locked in his first victory in MotoGP. From Argentina, he earned 34 points, bringing his balance to 50.
