MotoGP – 5 wins, 4 different winners, 4 nationalities

MotoGP has gotten off to a fine start after 5 races, featuring 4 different winners and 11 different podium finishers.

For the first time since 2008, MotoGP has had more than 5 consecutive races without a Spanish winner. MotoGP is known to be dominated by Spaniards however in 2020, history is being made.

So far we have had 4 different winners, all from different nationalities, French (Fabio Quartararo), South African (Brad Binder), Italian (Andrea Dovizioso) and Portuguese (Miguel Oliveira), this is not to mention the fact that three of these riders have made history.

Fabio Quartararo has become the first French rider to win more than one premier class MotoGP race in history, Brad Binder has become the first premier class winner from South Africa and Miguel Oliveira becomes the first-ever Portuguese Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP winner, becoming the first in all three classes, the most successful Portuguese rider in history.

The tally of four nationalities already beats the 2019 record of just two, Italian and Spanish, the last time we saw four different nationalities stand on the podium was 2016, however with a Spanish rider destined to step on this year’s top step, we will likely have five nationalities and we cannot write off Jack Miller, adding a sixth.

The 2000 500cc season was the last time the premier class saw more than four different nationalities win a race, in the year 2000 there were six different nationalities consisting of Spanish, Italian, American, Australian, Japanese and Brazilian. 2020 is set to break yet another record and we are only 5 races in!
