Valentino Rossi's second place finish last time out at Laguna Seca was the 158th podium of his grand prix career, in all classes.

That is just one less than all-time record holder Giacomo Agostini, as shown in the following table.

The only other current grand prix rider to appear in the top ten is Loris Capirossi, who needs one more top three finish to reach the milestone of 100.

The next chance for Rossi and Capirossi to achieve a podium finish will be at this weekend's German Grand Prix.

At the Sachsenring, Rossi is also scheduled to make his 159th successive premier-class start. That will take the record from Max Biaggi, who started 158 successive premier-class races.
