Qatar winner Dovizioso takes over at the top during FP2 for the Argentine MotoGP at Termas de Rio Hondo.

Morning leader Marquez had been fastest heading into the final ten minutes, when most riders used new soft tyres.

However, unlike the riders ahead of him, Marquez did not fit a new rear tyre at the end of the session.

All riders set their best lap times of the day in FP2, when the top 21 were covered by less than one-second!
