MotoGP Japan: Lorenzo climbing up in the record books

2014 certainly hasn't been Jorge Lorenzo's most successful MotoGP season, but a return to victory last time at Aragon has pushed the Spaniard further up in the record books.

The double MotoGP champion's 32nd win is one more than four-time 500cc world champion Eddie Lawson, leaving only five riders ahead: Yamaha team-mate Valentino Rossi (81 wins) followed by Giacomo Agostini (68), Mick Doohan (54), Casey Stoner (38) and Mike Hailwood (37).

Lorenzo is also now up to 53 wins in all classes, moving him ahead of Phil Read for sixth place on the overall grand prix winners' list. Lorenzo continues to hold sixth for all time podiums (120).

cossiegaz: He'll move ahead of Hailwood and Stoner but I'll be surprised if he gets more than Doohan, he's moving into the twilight years of his career now and wins will become harder and harder with the young guns coming through.
I hardly think he is moving into the twilight years of his career at 27! For sure this season has not been good by his standards and his confidence has taken a bit of a pounding but Jorge is still in the chase for 2nd place in the Championship. He is far from done yet.

For podiums across all classes he's already past Hailwood, Stoner, Doohan, Capirossi and Biaggi. I still think he's capable of winning races, this 2nd half of the season has shown us Marquez isn't invincible and a dent in confidence can work wonders for others.
