Rossi vs. Stoner (not a troll thread, promise...)

So I went looking for some heads up racing, Rossi vs. Stoner, and somehow came across this:

Maybe not a troll post, but it was a poke at the hornets nest. Which is not the worst thing I have seen on this site.

I knew this would produce a spirited discussion, no doubt.

I didn't make that graphic. It was on a site where they were discussing Rossi vs. Stoner. but since you asked:

the numbers, for 2006 - 2010

Stoner
Starts 83
Wins 23
Podiums 43
Poles 22
Fastest Laps 20
Points Scored 1211

Rossi
Starts 84
Wins 26
Podiums 58
Poles 19
Fastest Laps 20
Points Scored 1400

How convenient of you to leave out 2011 and 2012

Here we go, and this includes Stoners Rookie season a satellite bike and 3ed rate tires while Rossi was getting SNS on a factory bike.

If you throw in 2012 numbers, its really lopsided

Stoner started MotoGP as a satellite rider on second tier Michelin tyres I believe.
Rossi went in onto a factory NSR (the Yamaha M1 of its time) and top tier tyres. He has never seen a satellite bike in the premier class.
I don't suppose you'd be keen to put up a head to head comparison whilst both were on factory machines?
Keshav and The Burning Barber like this.

Win percentages in Motorcycle GrandsPrix?

Surtees - 76%
Agostini - 66%
Doohan - 39%
Marquez - 39%
Rossi - 34%
Lorenzo - 27%
Stoner - 26%
Rainey - 25%
Schwantz - 24%


As at 2010 season end, VR was 44% or thereabouts. A few tough years, increased competition and two Ducati years seem to have harmed the figure
