MM93 statistieken na de Dutch TT door Dr Martin Raines:
•72 – Marquez has a 72-point advantage after his Dutch TT victory; if he continues his winning sequence for the next six races, he can clinch the title at the Aragon GP – irrespective of the results of other riders
•40 – The victory by Marquez at the Dutch TT was the 40th time that he has been on the top step of the podium in his Grand Prix career, making him the 13th most successful GP rider of all-time in terms of Grand Prix wins.
•24 – The win at the Dutch TT was the 24th time that Marquez had stood on the podium in the MotoGP class. This is the same number of premier class podiums as the following four riders: John Surtees, Luca Cadalora, Jack Findlay and Carlos Checa.
•21 years, 131 days – At the Dutch TT, he became the youngest rider to win eight successive premier class races, taking the record from Mike Hailwood who was 24 years and 71 days old when in 1964 he won the eighth of a 12-race winning sequence. If Marquez wins in Germany, at the age of 21 years and 146 days he will become the youngest rider to win nine successive premier class races, taking the record from Mike Hailwood who was 24 years and 86 days old when in 1964 he won the ninth of that 12-race winning sequence
•20 – Marquez has qualified on the front row at the last 20 MotoGP races. The last time he did not start from the front row was when he was sixth on the grid in Catalunya last year

Criville was the first Spanish rider to win a premier class GP and also the first Spanish rider to win the premier class world title
•8 – He is the first rider to win eight successive MotoGP races since the category was introduced in 2002 as the premier class of Grand Prix racing. The last rider to win eight or more successive premier class races was Mick Doohan in 1997, when he won ten successive 500cc GP races
•8 – He is the first rider to win the opening eight races of the season in the premier class since Giacomo Agostini in 1971. If he wins in Germany, Marquez will become the first rider to win the opening nine races of the year since Agostini won the first ten races of the 1970 campaign
•8 – Marquez has already taken eight wins in 2014. Only six other riders have ever won eight or more premier class GP races in a single season: Mick Doohan, Valentino Rossi, Giacomo Agostini, Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo and Mike Hailwood
