MotoGP™ maintains strong field of winners for 2016 season

MotoGP™ maintains strong field of winners for 2016 season

The top nineteen riders of the 2015 MotoGP™ world championship continue in the class for 2016.

The full time entry list for this year contains 21 riders, with Nicky Hayden, Mike di Meglio, Alex de Angelis and Karel Abraham having all departed. The only rookie in the MotoGP™ class for 2016 is the 2014 Moto2™ World Champion Tito Rabat.

The strength of the MotoGP™ grid can be illustrated by the following facts about the riders lining up:

  • There are ten riders who have won a Grand Prix World Championship.
  • These ten riders have won a total of 27 World Championship titles between them.
  • Five riders on the list have won races in the premier-class. These five riders have between them won a total of 179 premier-class GP races – the highest number of accumulated premier-class GP wins ever assembled on the entry list at the opening race of the year.
  • Fifteen riders on the MotoGP™ entry list have had race victories in at least one of the three classes of Grand Prix racing, with a combined total of Grand Prix victories of 386.

The table below shows all the Grand Prix titlea, one the left, and victories, on the right, achieved by riders now in the premier class.
