MotoGP Silverstone: Lorenzo matches Stoner’s MotoGP wins

Jorge Lorenzo claimed his 38th MotoGP victory last time out at Brno, putting him level with former rival and fellow world champion Casey Stoner.

Stoner spent seven seasons in MotoGP, with Lorenzo now in his eighth year.

Only three riders in the 67-year history of motorcycle grand prix racing have achieved more premier-class victories than Lorenzo and Stoner:

85 wins - Valentino Rossi (7 premier-class titles)
68 wins - Giacomo Agostini (8 premier-class titles)
54 wins - Mick Doohan (5 premier-class titles)
=38 wins - Casey Stoner (2 premier-class titles)
=38 wins - Jorge Lorenzo (2 premier-class titles)

All of Lorenzo's MotoGP victories have been with Yamaha and he now needs just one more win to match Phil Read as the second most successful Yamaha grand prix rider. Rossi leads the way with 52 wins.

It took Lorenzo 131 races, whereas Stoner did it in mere 115 races. Lorenzo has been all his career on factory Yamaha, Stoner spent one year at LCR and most of his career on dismal Ducati. Now who's better?
