No, although Lewis does ride a bike he races in Formula 1 cars. Moto GP is the premier class of Motorcycle racing. Am I the only bike nut here?
Hint: There are two riders currently tied on points with a count back to the number of second place positions, required to split them.

OK it look like I am the only bike nut here, so I win, it is Marc Marquez, equal on 199 points and 4 wins but with more second placings than Andrea Doviizioso.

So a new question that hopefully is relevant to more people.
How many flights had the space shuttle Challenger made prior to its disastrous flight in 1986?

Oh! I know its maiden launch was in 1983, so thought it had just a couple of flights before the 1986 disaster. So the turnaround was faster than I thought.
