Just 500/MotoGP, I understand, and you can be a little friendlier guys :).

And BTW, that would be another interesting statics actually, consecutive podiums including all classes..

CS needs first has to go back to lower categories and get some titles, win on 125/250/500 two-stk and break Rossi's record to just be considered as something. CS won two titles by sheer luck. Rossi did not fail, Ducati faild him and themselves. lol CD would repeat the same thing at Ducati, first lucky title then finish the following seasons below 3rd in standing!! Give the guy a break, he is fishing after all!

His number of starts will increase, but at the same time his wins to start ratio will decline. I have not checked on it yet, so I hope someone could enlighten me on how his ratio compares to the other greats??

Hey @go46, if he goes on racing until he is 50 he will have the highest number of starts, greatest record of all time, but his win ratio will plummet to the lowest level. Sad to say it but he will never equal the win ratios of Stoner or other great racers.

@ me

If it makes it easier for you to sleep at night, you can have the win ratios. Anyone with a basic grasp of statistics knows that it means nothing.

Rossi further cements his position as the greatest.
