MotoGP Assen: Lorenzo one win from Stoner

Jorge Lorenzo's striding up the MotoGP win list
Jorge Lorenzo's Catalunya MotoGP victory was his 37th in the premier-class, putting him level with Mike Hailwood.

If Lorenzo can extend his winning streak to five in a row he will match former rival and fellow double MotoGP champion Casey Stoner's record of 38 victories this Saturday at Assen.

Lorenzo has won the last four MotoGP races from start to finish, marking 103 consecutive laps in the lead - a new MotoGP record.

That success has also taken the Spaniard to within one point of team-mate and title leader Valentino Rossi, who dominates the premier-class win list.

A win by any Yamaha rider at the Dutch TT will mean the factory has claimed six successive premier-class wins for the first time.

MotoGP/500cc race wins:
84 - Valentino Rossi (7 premier-class titles)
68 - Giacomo Agostini (8 premier-class titles)
54 - Mick Doohan (5 premier-class titles)
38 - Casey Stoner (2 premier-class titles)
37 - Mike Hailwood (4 premier-class titles) & Jorge Lorenzo (2 premier-class titles)

MLF: people choose to forget 2007 ducati and how far ahead and faster it was with the beginning of the 800 series.Yamaha and honda couldn't look at it. 2008 everyone caught up.
Some people choose to forget that former 125cc and 250cc champion Loris Capirossi, former 250cc champion Marco Melandri and former AMA and moto gp champion Nicky Hayden came nowhere near matching Stoners performances when they were on an identical bike to him.
