  |   F1

Marc Marquez says his incident during first MotoGP practice in Argentina, when he came close to making contact with Maverick Vinales, was "dangerous".

The Spaniard was approaching Turn 5 behind Karel Abraham, Vinales and Aleix Espargaro, but braked too deep.

With Vinales and Abraham both taking the corner slowly, slightly on the outside of the ideal line, Marquez had to squeeze past the gap between the two riders, nearly hitting Vinales, and going off-track.

Marquez explained that he had to stop braking and started to accelerate to get between the two bikes and escape the "dangerous" situation.

"About FP1 with Maverick, and Abraham, this was tight," said Marquez. "This was quite dangerous because they went wide, maybe slower, but here when you go to the dirty lane it is so difficult to turn the bike, to stop.

"I was going in and then I started to lose the rear, I say okay, I go wide. I realised that, as I go wide, they were off-line.
