In the 2019 MotoGP season, 220 crashes were counted. The negative record goes to Johann Zarco with 17 falls. Valentino Rossi stops at 8.
The 2019 MotoGP season has counted the fewest falls in the last four years. There are 220 falls recorded, compared to 303 in 2018. This is also thanks to the progress made by the Michelin tires and the lack of rain in most of the 19 races. In MotoGP there were 74 crashes on Sunday, 12 in warm-ups, 33 in free practice, the rest in the four free practice sessions. The Le Mans GP recorded the highest number of crashes, reaching 90 for all three classes.
This year in the premier class the negative record goes to Johann Zarco. 17 crashes for the French driver, most of them on the KTM RC16, from which he fell in September to get on the LCR Honda. Second in the standings is Jack Miller with 15 accidents (two less than the previous year), followed by his teammate Pecco Bagnaia and Marc Marquez, both with 14 falls. However, the Cervera champion has taken a big step forward compared to the previous years: 23 falls in 2018 and 27 in 2017. Andrea Dovizioso is the lowest number of slips at 4, while Valentino Rossi crashed 8 times.
In Moto2, however, it is Sam Lowes to have reported the greatest number of falls (20) followed by Marco Bezzecchi (18) and Xavi Vierge (17). In Moto3 the sad record belongs to Tom Booth-Amos (22) in front of Can Oncu (21) and Kaito Toba (19). In the 2019 World Championship season there are a total of 971 falls, a decrease compared to 1077 in the previous year.
