At last weekend’s Argentina Grand Prix Valentino Rossi won his second race of the 2015 MotoGP™ season with an emphatic victory while the podium was completed with Ducati Team’s Andrea Dovizioso in second place and CWM LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow in third.

The entire race weekend was dry yet the first day was marred by poor track conditions that resulted in low grip and accelerated tyre wear. Conditions improved as each session passed and although track temperatures reached 47°C during qualifying on Saturday, it was cooler for the race with track temperatures in the high-thirty degree range.
