Valentino Rossi still heads the statistics

Even though Valentino Rossi has not had the best of starts in 2006 he still heads the table of statistics when compared to other riders of the ‘modern era' (since 1975). Although it is difficult to assess a long term statistical trend after just five races, Dani Pedrosa's performance so far in the MotoGP class is enough to have him appear in the following list of top performers over the last 30 years.
