Although Giacomo Agostini has won the most number of times, his name is mentioned only in Europe. This was due to limitations in the schedule and television technology of that period. So Valentino Rossi has been voted Crash News history number one racer.
The prestigious news website about racing is based on achievements, and the influence of the drivers. The number 46 is credited with bringing MotoGP to the worldwide audience. Third on this list is Marc Marquez.
In recent years, Rossi’s accomplishments have come down, but he’s still the most favorite racer. The Doctor himself holds an important record in the MotoGP format that the number of leg victories, far more than Agostini. Part of the reason Rossi is playing more than Agostini.
This is also Marc Marquez’s biggest challenge if he wants to surpass Rossi in these polls. He is now 36 years younger than the Italian general. So certainly, even after Marquez will level Rossi’s record of nine times winning the championship, he will not be able to catch up.
Of course, Cervera is only 26 years old, he still has a lot of time to change this chart. Just like Rossi Marquez also has the advantage of playing more times. Because the MotoGP racing schedule is constantly expanding and the racing career of the riders is longer than before.
Entering the official race day, Repsol Honda Team’s two riders entered the race very successfully while maintaining the leading position. Marquez seemed unrivaled as he moved further away from the rest of the race, maintaining the first place in the race until the last lap.
Pedrosa also had a fairly successful race day when finishing the race in 3rd place. Previously he lost the runner-up position to Valentino Rossi when there were only 3 final races left.
Rossi’s teammate in the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team, Maverick Vinales, had another unsuccessful day when finishing in the penultimate position.
