Spain's Maverick Vinales has continued his perfect start to the MotoGP season with victory in Argentina after compatriot and reigning champion Marc Marquez crashed while leading from pole.

The 22-year-old Vinales, who switched from Suzuki at the end of last year, became the first Yamaha rider since US great Wayne Rainey in 1990 to win the first two races of a season in the premier class.

Italian Valentino Rossi celebrated becoming the first rider to make 350 grand prix starts across all categories by finishing second behind his team mate, 2.915 seconds behind, at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit on Sunday (NZT Monday).

Britain's Cal Crutchlow took third place for the non-works LCR Honda outfit after having to slow down and save fuel in the closing stages.
