What a front row it is at the second round of the 2016 MotoGP season at Argentina. Marc Marquez on pole, followed by Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo. The results were decided after a rather action packed qualifying session on Saturday, where plenty of riders fell at Turn 1. The last, and perhaps most critical fall during qualifying, happened to be that of Marquez himself. But fortunately, it was after he'd already set his pole lap.
