MotoGP: Rossi has led 4 laps, Lorenzo 91

MotoGP championship leader Valentino Rossi has led 4 race laps this season - Jorge Lorenzo 91 laps.
Team-mates Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo may be separated by just six points at the top of the MotoGP standings, but one of them has led 91 race laps and the other 4 laps.

It's a stat that underlines just how different their race victories have been.

Championship leader Rossi snatched his two wins with passes on the penultimate lap at both Qatar and Argentina, but has not led any other races. Lorenzo was up front for 16 laps in Qatar before leading every single lap at the last three rounds in Jerez, Le Mans and Mugello.

Reigning champion Marc Marquez led for the final 17 laps in Austin, then the first 23 in Argentina. Ducati's Andrea Dovizioso is yet to win a race, but led for five laps in Qatar and four in Austin.

Racing laps led after six rounds:
1. Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha) 91 out of 144 laps
2. Marc Marquez (Honda) 40 laps
3. Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati) 9 laps
4. Valentino Rossi (Yamaha) 4 laps

Its a pointless statistic! Rossi is leading the championship because he went over the line while leading a lap. The last lap of the race is where it means anything to be leading it. All the other laps don't count for anything.
