Rins joins exclusive club with Rossi, Biaggi and Viñales

Alex Rins has earned plenty of plaudits after his stunning win at the Americas GP over the weekend. That means he has now taken MotoGP™ race wins with two different Japanese manufacturers – a feat that has only been achieved three times since the inception of the MotoGP™ era. Max Biaggi was the first to do it, taking victory at the 2002 Czech GP in Brno with Yamaha, before securing his first win with Honda at the British GP one year later. Like Rins, Top Gun took his first MotoGP™ win with Suzuki when he was victorious at the 2016 British GP.
