#JapaneseGP in numbers

Check out these awesome number related facts ahead of the Motul Grand Prix of Japan.

100 – Hector Barbera is scheduled to make his 100th MotoGP™ start at the Japanese Grand Prix.

100 – The Moto2™ race at Aragon was the 100th since the class was introduced at the start of 2010 to replace the 250cc class. Dominique Aegerter is the only rider to start all one hundred Moto2™ races, but due to his unfortunate crash in Aragon is set to miss the Japanese Grand Prix.

84 – Honda lead the Moto3™ Constructors Championship by 84 points and will take the title in the lightweight-class for the first time since 2001 if any Honda rider finishes on the podium.

62 – Yamaha lead the MotoGP™ Constructors Championship by 62 points and will clinch the title (for the first time since 2010) in Motegi if they outscore Honda by thirteen points.

50 – At the Aragon Grand Prix Marc Marquez made his 50th start in the MotoGP™ class, from which he has had 23 race wins and a total of 37 podium finishes. It is interesting to compare these statistics to the first 50 starts in the premier-class for Valentino Rossi, from which he took 25 race wins and a total of 40 podium finishes.

28 – The Aragon Grand Prix resulted in Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa taking the top two places for the 28th time in the MotoGP™ class – the most frequent top two combination of riders in the premier-class. From the twenty eight times the two riders have filled the top two positions, Lorenzo has won on fifteen occasions and Pedrosa on the remaining thirteen occasions.

16 – Jorge Navarro finished on the podium for the first time at the Aragon grand prix. He is the 16th different rider to finish on the podium in the Moto3™ class this year, the highest number of different podium finishers in the lightweight-class since 1979, when there were 17.

10 – Jorge Lorenzo’s victory in Aragon was the tenth win of the year by Yamaha, and they now need just one more victory from the final four races to equal the greatest number of premier-class grand prix wins they have achieved in a single season; in both 2010 and 2005.

3 – Following Danilo Petrucci’s crash at Aragon there are now just three riders in the MotoGP™ class who have scored points at every race in 2015: Valentino Rossi, Andrea Iannone and Bradley Smith.

2 - Motegi is one of just two circuits where Marquez has not had a win in the MotoGP™ class, along with Phillip Island.
