188 – Andrea Iannone has scored a total of 188 points so far in 2015, with two races of the year remaining. This is the highest points score by a Ducati rider in MotoGP™ since Casey Stoner finished fourth in the championship in 2010 with a score of 225 points.

99 – The win by Marc Marquez in Australia was the 99th win for Spanish riders in MotoGP™ since it became the premier-class of grand prix racing in 2002. Spain are the nation with the most wins in the MotoGP™ class - the number of victory for other nations is: Italy – 91, Australia – 40, USA – 4, Brazil – 3, Japan - 3

25 – Danilo Petrucci will celebrate his 25th birthday on the day of qualifying in Malaysia.

22.84 seconds – Twelfth placed finisher in Australia, Danilo Petrucci, crossed the line just 22.84 seconds behind race winner Marc Marquez. This is the closest top twelve in a full length MotoGP™ race since it became the premier-class of grand prix racing in 2002. Only once before in the premier-class have the top twelve been closer, at the 500cc race at Phillip Island in 2001 when the first twelve riders across the line were covered by just 20.303 seconds.

18 years 346 days – Lorenzo Baldassarri’s third place finish in Australia is his first podium in grand prix racing. This makes him the youngest Italian rider to finish on the podium in the Moto2™ class and the second youngest Italian rider of all-time, after Marco Melandri, to finish on the podium in the intermediate-class of grand prix racing.

14 – Although he did not make it onto the podium in Australia, new world champion Johann Zarco has finished on the podium thirteen times so far in 2015 and he needs just one more top three finish in the remaining two races to equal the record of 14 podiums in a season in the intermediate-class (Moto2™/250cc), held jointly by Marc Marquez (2012) and Tito Rabat (2014).

6.8 seconds – At the Australian Grand Prix Maverick Viñales crossed the line just 6.8 seconds behind Marc Marquez. This is the smallest gap that a Suzuki rider has had to the race winner in MotoGP™ since Loris Capirossi finished fifth riding a Suzuki at Mugello in 2009 when he crossed the line just 3.274 seconds after race winner Casey Stoner.

4 – Sepang is one of four circuits on the current schedule where Jorge Lorenzo has not had a win in the MotoGP™ class, along with: Austin, Sachsenring and Termas de Rio Hondo.

3 – The sixth place finish by Maverick Viñales in Australia won him the Rookie of the Year title. This is the third time that he has been the top rookie; in 2011 in the 125cc class and last year in Moto2™.

1.058 seconds – Just 1.058 seconds separated the MotoGP™ race winner in Australia Marc Marquez and fourth placed Valentino Rossi. This is the closet top four in the MotoGP™ class since the Portuguese MotoGP™ race in 2006 at Estoril when Colin Edwards crossed the line in fourth just 0.864 seconds behind race winner Toni Elias.
