Crutchlow’s rare podium hat-trick

Since the start of the MotoGP class in 2005, only five other riders have managed this feat.

They are Valentino Rossi (Honda, Yamaha, Ducati), Alex Barros (Honda, Yamaha, Ducati), Loris Capirossi (Honda, Ducati, Suzuki), Andrea Dovizioso (Honda, Yamaha, Ducati) and Marco Melandri (Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki).

In fact, Crutchlow is the first rider since Eddie Lawson in 1989-'90-'91 to finish on the podium for three successive years for three different manufacturers.

Only Colin Edwards with 12 podiums has scored more finishes in the top three without winning a race than Crutchlow.
