It is very easy to guess the first one and the last one is also not difficult, but in the middle? The first Italian is only sixth, Aleix Espargaro is far behind. A ranking based on world championships and career races
August 16, 2022
Cas he remembered Nico Cereghini at the beginning of 2022 this championship sees on the track 14 world champions, a very important number that highlights this competition. The following is the ranking by GP titles and victoriesor a kind of perpetual ranking (similar to that of Serie A football) of the careers of the 24 drivers of the top class.
How does it work: in the first place what counts is the world cupfrom MotoGP to Moto3 and then the single wins in the various categories: in the ranking that follows a victory in MotoGP weighs more than 10 in Moto2 but a world championship won in Moto3 weighs more than 20 races won in MotoGP.
It starts from 24th driver and you get to the firstwhich is easy to guess who he is, but between the 24th and the first the ranking is very interesting.
There are no Italians in the top 5: the first is sixth and the last is 23rd. One of the three contenders for the 2022 championship in this ranking is in the bottom positions.
This ranking has no claim to be the one that defines the values on the track in this 2022 but, as is often said, e as the pilots themselves saythere is a lot difference between a driver who has won “only” grands prix from one who has been World Champion: for this reason in the top positions there are certain riders and not others. Enjoy the reading!
There are 5 MotoGP riders who have never won a MotoGP race or a world championship
24th and last Darryn Binder: Only 1 race won in Moto3, never close to the title in Moto3, never raced in Moto2, his move to MotoGP seemed completely risky to many. He was feared for his impetuousness, seen in Moto3. For now he is doing a rather anonymous championship on Yamaha
23rd, penultimate Ffir Di Giannantonio: 1 race won in Moto2, 2 in Moto3 in which he finished second in 2018. This year, great sharp at Mugello: pole in the first year in MotoGP
22esimo Takaaki Nakagami: 2 races won in Moto2, sixth place in Moto2 best placement. From next year he will only be a tester for Honda
21st Marco Bezzecchi: 3 races won in Moto 2, 3 in Moto3. He finished third in both championships, again with 214 points
20th Luca Marini: 6 races won in Moto2, in 2020 he finished second in the middle class championship

18th Aleix Espargaro: for those who follow the world championship this year, few but some will be there, it seems absurd to see him here. Yet Aleix won the first race of his career (!) This year.
