First and second race wins in 500cc/MotoGP

Given the recent achievement of Marc Marquez, the below list shows how long it took the leading 500cc/MotoGP riders of the 'modern era' (1975 onwards) to claim their first and then second race wins.

The start date of the list means that Jarno Saarinen is not included. Saarinen, like Max Biaggi, won on his 500cc debut (in 1973) - and also won his second race as well...

It's clear that Marquez is a very very special talent whi will continue to break records but we must also rememeber he has come straight in on arguably the best bike on the grid and that coincidentally the 2nd race happened to be a completely new track to all riders which levelled the playing field, makes me wonder what Casey Stoner could've achieved had he been given a repsol at the start of 2006!

Completely agree on the Marquez comment. Not taking anything away from him as he had a flawless weekend in Austin, but you must also remember that rookies werent always allowed to jump straight on a factory machine so this would have delayed some of the riders getting their first wins.
