Only once before in the 65-year history of motorcycle grand prix has the championship arrived at round four without a repeat winner in those equivalent classes (125cc/Moto3, 250cc/Moto2 and 500cc/MotoGP).

That occurred back in 1951 when the winners were are follows:

500cc: Umberto Masetti, Fergus Anderson and Geoff Duke. 250cc: Dario Ambrosini, Tommy Wood and Bruno Ruffo. 125cc: Guido Leoni, Cromie McCandless and Gianni Leoni.

Of the nine podiums this season, four have been filled entirely by Spanish riders: MotoGP at Austin and Jerez, plus Moto3 at Losail and Austin. In total, Spaniards have accounted for 21 out of the 27 rostrum riders so far in 2013.
