#StatAttack: Moto2™ past the halfway marker

It's almost engines on for the Czech GP - here's what you need to know before lights out

- Championship leader Franco Morbidelli (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) has won his sixth race from the nine opening races of the season - Jorge Lorenzo was the last rider to achieve this feat in the intermediate-class back in 2007.

- Morbidelli's best result in Brno is eighth in both 2014 and last year.

- Miguel Oliveira (Red Bull KTM Ajo) crossed the line in second at the Sachsenring, equalling his best Moto2™ result from Argentina earlier this year. He finished ninth from ninth on the grid last year at Brno.

- Sky Racing Team VR46's Francesco Bagnaia was third at the Sachsenring, his third podium in his rookie season in the intermediate category - equalling the number of Moto2™ podiums of Lorenzo Baldassarri.

- There have been seven different winners in Brno since the introduction of Moto2™ in 2010 (Elías, Iannone, M. Márquez, Kallio, Rabat, Zarco, Folger).

- CarXpert Interwetten's Tom Lüthi (2012, 2013), Idemitsu Honda Team Asia's Takaaki Nakagami (2013) and Dynavolt Intact GP's Sandro Cortese (2014) are the only riders currently competing in Moto2™ to have stood on the podium in Brno in the class.

- Tom Lüthi won the 125cc race at Brno in 2005, the year he took the world title in the lightweight class. Lüthi and Sandro Cortese (2011), are the only two riders on the Moto2™ grid who have won in the lightweight class at this track.

- Tito Rabat (2014) and Johann Zarco (2015) are the only riders who have won in Moto2™ at Brno after qualifying on pole since 2010.
