MotoGP, If Marquez, if Bagnaia, if Acosta, if Ducati: all the 'ifs' of the Barcelona GP

If Marc Marquez wins the Grand Prix race, it will mark 945 days since his last win at the 2021 Emilia-Romagna GP. There were 581 days between his win at Valencia 2019, his last before sustaining his arm injury in Jerez in 2020, and his next win at the 2021 German GP.

MotoGP: If Marquez, if Bagnaia, if Acosta, if Ducati: all the 'ifs' of the Barcelona GP

945 – If Marc Marquez wins the Grand Prix race, it will mark 945 days since his last win at the 2021 Emilia- Romagna GP. There were 581 days between his win at Valencia 2019, his last before sustaining his arm injury in Jerez in 2020, and his next win at the 2021 German GP.

66 – If at least one Ducati qualifies in the top three, it will be the 66th consecutive race that a Ducati rider starts on the front row, stretching back to Valencia 2020.

52 – Ducati is on a streak of 51 consecutive GP races with at least one rider on the podium. If they take a podium this weekend, they will extend their record to 52.

20 – Pedro Acosta will be 20 years and 1 day old on Sunday, so if he wins the GP, he’ll become the youngest premier class winner, taking the record from Marc Marquez (20 years 63 days old in Austin in 2013).

6 – There are six full-time riders on the grid who could take their maiden MotoGP win this weekend: Alex Marquez, Raul Fernandez, Luca Marini, Takaaki Nakagami, Augusto Fernandez and rookie Pedro Acosta.

5 – If a rider other than Franco Morbidelli (2020), Fabio Quartararo (2021), Aleix Espargaro (2022) or Francesco Bagnaia (2023) qualifies on pole, they will be the fifth different polesitter in five premier class GPs in Catalunya.

1 – If Bagnaia finishes on the podium, it will be the first time he’s taken a GP podium in Barcelona in any class. Barcelona, Argentina and Buddh are the only tracks where he has raced and not yet finished on the rostrum.
