I think the 'overall' GP victories is a misleading statistic. There is just no way a victory on a a 125 against many kids who will never make it should carry equal weight to a victory on a 500/1000 against the proven best riders in the world. Once you rank those guys on premier class wins Rossi surpasses Agostini, while Doohan, Hailwood and Stoner surpass Nieto, which is a far truer picture of their relative status in the sport IMO

during the old time, the lower class such as 250cc and 125cc were looked as an another class...not as a supported class...not like today, the lower class is the preparation for the bigger class...that's why the manufacturer really looked the lower class very seriously, especially Honda...with their 12 gears 125cc bike (I actually forgot how many gears), 6 cylinders 250cc...sorry if I wrong because I actually forgot the fact but those were the days...
