Podium and series lead for Canet; comeback from López for sixth place
Repsol rider Arón Canet took second place in Argentina, whilst teammate Alonso López moved up fifteen positions for a praiseworthy sixth place in his second race in the World Championship.
Arón Canet’s second consecutive podium allows him to take the lead in the World Championship with 40 points, 10 more than his closest rival.
The Moto3 Repsol rider started from eighth in a race began with the track wet, but in which the surface dried out quickly.
Alonso López moved up eight positions on the first lap and continued his progress, crossing the finish line in sixth. It was a great performance in his second race in the World Championship, at another circuit unfamiliar to him before this weekend.
