The Grand Prix of the Americas MotoGP was the scene of an intense fight between manufacturers for victory, which was ultimately signed by Maverick Vinales. The opportunity to look back at some figures that marked this competition weekend.

Proof by 3

By winning the Grand Prix of the Americas this Sunday, he not only signed his tenth career success. While he had not won since the 2021 Qatar GP, the Spaniard became the first rider in the MotoGP era to win with three different manufacturers. Before Aprilia, Batmav had already reached the top step of the podium with Suzuki and Yamaha.

Aprilia being the last manufacturer not yet to have scored a podium in Austin, the No. 12 allowed the Noale factory to upgrade.

Before Marquez

Aged 19 years and 325 days, Gasgas Tech3 team rookie Pedro Acosta finished in second position in the main race in Texas, signing his best result in MotoGP.

A podium which allows him to achieve a statistic from Marc Marquez, becoming the youngest driver to reach the podium twice in a row in the premier category. The eight-time world champion had performed such a feat on the same circuit, eleven years earlier, and was then aged 20 years and 63 days.

Two times in a row

The Grand Prix of the Americas saw neither Jorge Martin nor Francesco Bagnaia take to the box, with both Ducati riders finishing in fourth and fifth positions. It is the first MotoGP podium without the two rivals since last year's Americas GP.

That day, Alex Rins, Luca Marini and fabio quartararo shared the joys of the top-3. Note that Maverick Vinales' victory ended a streak of eleven consecutive victories for Ducati, which began at the 2023 San Marino GP.

By finishing third in the main race, Enea Bastianini allowed Ducati to continue its series of meetings with at least one rider on the podium. The counter at the Italian factory now stands at 49.
