Who could emulate Rossi to become a Champion in their 30s?

In the MotoGP™ era, only one rider has managed to get his hands on the premier class world title after reaching the age of 30. Heading into the 2023 campaign, a number of candidates could join the nine-time World Champion. If Marquez was to win this year’s MotoGP™ World Championship, he and Rossi would stand alone in being nine-time World Champions who have won a title in their 30s. The Doctor might be the only rider to have done so in the MotoGP™ era, but there are some phenomenal names to have done it before the Italian took the Grand Prix world by storm – eight of them to be precise.
