20 – Record number of MotoGP™ World Championship titles
Rossi (9), Marquez (6) and Lorenzo (5) made it the most successful podium in terms of total titles won in the MotoGP™ era. In addition, the only other riders to have won the MotoGP™ World Championship since 2002 are Nicky Hayden and Casey Stoner, such has been the domination of these three riders.
