Rider's Championship Review

The 2016 MotoGP has been both an exciting and unpredictable one with eight different riders winning so far this season.

Marc Marquez of Honda has established himself at the top of the riders' standings with 223 points, 43 points ahead of his nearest competitor Valentino Rossi of Yamaha, while his teammate Jorge Lorenzo rounds up the top three with 162 points to his name.

What has been interesting is the fact that Marquez has won only three races this year and is still leading the riders' championship, which just shows the level of competition currently present in MotoGP.
