MotoGP 2012: Team-mate vs. Team-mate

4 December 2012

The first person to beat in motorsport is your team-mate and the following list shows how many times the 2012 MotoGP line-up finished ahead of their pit colleague.

Only teams with two riders on the same MotoGP or CRT machinery were included and only qualifying/races that both riders participated in were counted.

If a rider failed to finish a race, his team-mate was credited as having done better in that event. If both failed to finish, they both received 0. The difference between the team-mates by the end of the year is shown in brackets.

So 'Races: Pedrosa 8 - Stoner 7 (1)' means Pedrosa finished higher than Stoner in eight of the races they both took part in, with Stoner higher than Pedrosa seven times. With a difference of just one, their performances were thus closely matched.

A list showing the top rider for each brand, at each race, is at the base of the page...
