Martín needed one less race than Schwantz and Agostini

The rookie achieved his first triumph in the premier class in just six races, less than illustrious names and not so far behind Márquez (2), Lorenzo (3) or Pedrosa (4).


At 23 years old, Jorge Martín has no place, not even close to the ten youngest winners in the queen class, a section that Marc Márquez leads when he wins at 20 years and 63 days in Texas 2013. However, the Madrid native does has won a place of honor in the ranking of drivers who needed the fewest races in the premier class to get their first win.

Lead this section Biaggi, who won at the first attempt in Japan 98, tied with Duke and his victory in the Isle of Man 1950 and with Daniell, who also won in the Isle of Man a year earlier, in the first race in history in the reigning class, in 1949. The Pramac Ducati from Madrid has done it in his sixth appearance among the best, which puts him at the level of illustrious names. He surpasses two myths like Schwantz and Agostini by a career and is not so far behind other precocious Spanish talents, such as Márquez (he won the second), Lorenzo (the third) and Pedrosa (the fourth).Races contested for the first victory in MotoGP / 500
