Rossi - 100 wins - some stats

Everyone else coming up in GP has a long way to go and some mighty big boots to fill.

from MotoGP.com

Rossi’s 100 Grand Prix wins – the statistics
Tuesday, 30 June 2009

Some facts and figures relating to Valentino Rossi’s remarkable 100 career wins, since his first victory in the 125cc class in Brno in 1996.


With his victory at the Alice TT Assen Valentino Rossi became only the second rider ever to reach the milestone of 100 Grand Prix victories, as motogp.com documented in Monday’s video tributes to the Fiat Yamaha star.

Today we offer a selection of statistics relating to Rossi’s colourful and triumphant march to a century of GP successes, which along the way have brought him eight World titles across the three Grand Prix classes:

- The 100 victories have come from 217 Grand Prix starts, a win rate over his career of 46.1%.

- Rossi has won on six different types of motorcycle: 125cc Aprilia (12 wins), 250cc Aprilia (14 wins), 500cc Honda (13 wins), 990cc Honda (20 wins), 990cc Yamaha (25 wins) and 800cc Yamaha (16 wins).

- His 41 wins riding for Yamaha is more than any other rider. The second most successful Yamaha rider is Phil Read with 39 victories.

- Rossi has won Grand Prix races at 27 different circuits. The circuits at which he has had most success are Mugello and Catalunya with nine wins at each.

- The most wins Rossi has had in a single season is 11, which he has achieved on four occasions: 1997 (125cc), 2001 (500cc), 2002 and 2005 in MotoGP.

- His 11 wins in 1997 is a record for most victories in a single season in the 125cc class.

- Rossi’s 74 race victories in the premier-class is more than any other rider in the 61-year history of Grand Prix racing.

- With his victory in Jerez this year Valentino Rossi became the first rider to achieve at least one Grand Prix victory for 14 successive seasons.

- The total length of his winning career from his first win in the 125cc race at the Czech GP in 1996 to his latest victory at Assen, is 12 years 313 days. Only four riders have had a longer winning career in Grand Prix racing: Loris Reggiani, Phil Read, Angel Nieto and Loris Capirossi.

lol, I don't even know if I'm right or not.

Fact of the matter is that the problems I have with Rossi wouldn't be solved if he won ever race from now until the end of time. He's still a very fake personality and a dirty racer when he needs to be.
