This figure of nine world championships is correct but irrelevant, nowadays it is Moto GP titles that count and the number is seven. If Pedrosa went to Moto 2 and won five consecutive titles he would be an "eight time world champion" but one Moto GP title would mean more. The lower classes are important but once a rider has established himself in the top class his junior achievements should be nothing more than a footnote.
