After also winning in Qatar, Mir adds the Moto3 Grand Prix of Argentina to his scorecard. He now holds a perfect 50 Series points.
John McPhee, who started on pole again second, same as Qatar. As did ex-Red Bull Rookie Jorge Martin in third place.
Philipp Oettl and Andrea Migno were there at the finish to post a fourth and fifth for the KTM factory.
