Gallery: 10 youngest MotoGP race winners of all time
Dec 8, 2018, 6:47 AM

We've compiled a list of 10 youngest riders to have won a 500cc/MotoGP race in the entire history of FIM grand prix motorcycle racing.

The assumption that more and more young riders are graduating to the premier class of motorcycle racing is mistaken, given four out of 10 riders on our list won their first race in the 500cc class - well before the formation of the present-day MotoGP series in 2002.

In fact, the oldest entry on our list dates back to 1961, while the latest is from the year 2016.

Interestingly, all 10 riders on the list were younger than 22 when they first won a 500cc/MotoGP race. That gives Fabio Quartararo, who is stepping up to the premier class next year at a tender age of just 19, until the autumn of 2020 to make it to our list.
