Get in the mood for the Gran Premio TIM di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini with these interesting facts.

249 – Johann Zarco’s current points total of 249 is the highest points total achieved after the first twelve races in the intermediate-class since Max Biaggi had 258 points at the same stage of the 1995 250cc championship.

224 – Danny Kent’s current points total of 224 is the highest number of points achieved by a British rider in the lightweight-class of grand prix racing, just half a point more than the previous record of 223.5 points achieved by Bradley Smith in the 125cc class 2009.

85 – Johann Zarco has an eighty five point lead at the top of the Moto2™ championship table after winning at Silverstone: this is the greatest lead any rider has had after the first twelve races of the season in the intermediate-class of grand prix racing.

25 – Sam Lowes will celebrate his 25th birthday on the day after the Grand Prix at Misano.

16 - Valentino Rossi’s win at Silverstone was his sixteenth successive MotoGP™ podium finish. The last race at which he did not stand on the podium was at the Aragon Grand Prix last year when he crashed out of the race on the fourth lap.

15 – At the British Grand Prix Jakub Kornfeil became the 15th different rider to finish on the podium in the Moto3™ class this season. These fifteen riders are drawn from nine different nationalities.

10th – Tatsuki Suzuki finished 10th in the Moto3™ race at Silverstone – the first top ten finish by a Japanese rider in the Moto3 class. The last top ten by a Japanese rider in the lightweight-class of grand prix racing was Hiroki Ono’s eighth place finish in the 125cc race at Jerez in 2011.

7 years – At the British Grand Prix Danilo Petrucci finished on the podium for the first time in his MotoGP™ career to become the first Ducati rider from a satellite team to finish on the podium since Toni Elias was third at Misano in 2008. This result also equals the best ever result by a satellite Ducati rider which was achieved by Toni Elias at Brno in 2008.

6 years – It is over six years since Valentino Rossi has scored back-to-back grand prix victories, since he won in Catalunya and at the Dutch TT in 2009. If he takes the race victory in Misano he will become the second oldest rider of all-time to win back-to-back premier-class grand prix wins, behind Les Graham who won the final two races of 1952 at the age of forty-one.

6 – Danny Kent’s win at Silverstone was his sixth GP win of the year, the most GP wins in a single season by a British rider since Barry Sheene won six 500cc GP races in 1977.  Another win for Danny Kent this year will make him the British rider with most wins in a single season since Dave Simmonds took eight 125cc victories in 1969, when he was also the last British rider to take the lightweight-class world title, riding a Kawasaki.

5 – Johann Zarco took his fifth win of 2015 at the British Grand Prix. This equals the greatest number of GP victories in a single season by a French rider, achieved by Arnaud Vincent in his 125cc championship winning year of 2002.

3 – At Silverstone Danilo Petrucci became the third different rider to finish on the podium in 2015 riding a Ducati. The last time that three different riders had podium finishes on a Ducati in the same season was in 2007, when Casey Stoner, Loris Capirossi and Alex Barros all had top three finishes on Ducati.
