Rossi’s win in Argentina was the 199th time that he has stood on the podium in his Grand Prix career, will he make it 200 in Jerez?

One more top three finish and Valentino Rossi will become the first rider in the 67 year history of grand prix racing to reach the milestone of 200 podium finishes, and not many would bet against Rossi acheiving that feat in Jerez, where he already has 8 wins to his name across all classes.
