A few facts that I gleaned from the latest GPMAG magazine:

The stats are correct up to end of June 2024;

1.042 seconds is the average time between the winner and the followers for the seven first GPs; this is the smallest gap ever recorded during the motoGP era (2002-2024).

Aprilia only needs 3 hours to rig down their pit stand after the race. The slowest teams take 4 hours. I would have preferred to have the figure for the rig up.

Maverick Viñales winning the Austin GP became a member of the 3 wins on 3 different machines; Suzuki, Yamaha, Aprilia. The others are:

-Mike Hailwood (Norton, MV, Honda)

-Randy Mamola (Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha)

-Eddie Lawson (Yamaha, Honda, Cagiva)

-Loris Capirossi (Yamaha, Honda, Ducati)

600 grams is the rubber loss per GP of a racing tire (Barcelona 112 km)

The oldest winner of the top motorcycle racing category is Fergus Anderson; he won the Spanish GP when 44 years old. The youngest winner is Marc Marquez 20 years old COTA in 2013.
