The next round of the MotoGP World Championship takes place this weekend, and as always the numbers add up to breathtaking action and a place in the history books. Here are some of the figures to be looking for at Mugello:

1991 – The total number of points accumulated in the premier-class by Alex Barros. A top seven finish at Mugello and he will become just the third rider ever to pass the milestone of 2000 points in the premier-class, joining Mick Doohan and Valentino Rossi.

91 – The number of premier class Grand Prix races between the last win by a Suzuki rider (Sete Gibernau at Valencia in 2001) and Chris Vermeulen's victory in France.

11 - There has been at least one Italian rider on the podium in the premier class at Mugello for the last eleven years.

8 – Aprilia have scored eight victories this year from the fifteen Grand Prix races that have taken place in 2007. This compares with three wins for Ducati and one each for Derbi, Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki.

5 – The first five races of the year in the 125cc class have been won by five different riders (Hector Faubel, Gabor Talmacsi, Simone Corsi, Lukas Pesek and Sergio Gadea). This has occurred just once previously in the 125cc class, in 2005. If none of these five riders wins in Italy it will set a new record of the opening six races won by six different riders.

5 - Only five riders have managed to score points in each of the five MotoGP races of this year; Casey Stoner, Valentino Rossi, Marco Melandri, Chris Vermeulen and Sylvain Guintoli.
